Baby Heartbeat Baby Gifts are the perfect pregnancy present

My Story…

Babies are one of life’s greatest gifts, and I was blessed with four bundles of joy, 3 boys and their very out-numbered sister. Not only did they change my life, but they also opened me up to a world full of baby treasures. I admit I’m a sucker for keepsakes. My journey into the world of keepsakes began in November 2008, when I delivered my first healthy baby boy who steals my heart daily. From the very moment I found out I was pregnant, it was almost instinctual to try to absorb and preserve every amazing bit of him. One of the major highlights during my pregnancy was going for my ultrasound appointment and hearing my baby’s heartbeat. The anticipation and the joy of hearing the first “swoosh, swoosh” was one of the most magical moments of my life.

The Beginning…

I began to organise fundraising events for kids with cancer when I met 3-year-old Jai. Jai had been diagnosed with high-risk Neuroblastoma cancer and so I decided to raise funds to help him and his beautiful family. As our friendship developed, I wanted to give Jai’s mum, Hayley, a unique gift that she could treasure forever. Remembering how I felt at my ultrasound appointments, I thought it would be amazing if Hayley could record Jai’s heartbeat and keep the recording in a cuddly teddy bear. After discovering an untapped market for recordable stuffed animals, much of my research unveiled stuffed animals that did not meet my standards of quality for such a special keepsake. There was nothing contemporary and stylish out there for modern parents wanting to record these precious life events. That was the moment the idea for Baby Beats was born and I started to create my own line of heartbeat animals, making them available to every expectant mother.

Becoming a mother was the catalyst for turning my beloved hobby of sourcing unique baby gifts into a career. I was able to achieve this goal through the love and support I received from my incredible husband and my 4 beautiful children.

My Company…

Baby Beats began in 2017. I am very passionate about what I do and I’m proud to say all Baby Beats products are manufactured to my own designs and packaged here in Australia. I make sure Baby Beats is always evolving, providing customers with the best online experience as well as product experience. I love connecting on social media and I am constantly attached to my phone! You can find me on Facebook and Instagram. You can also find me at industry events as I love to network, support my community, and get inspired by those around me. I have only one regret, I wish I would have started this sooner.

My Personal Goal…

We Give. As a caring, modern company, we donate to reputable children’s charities and organisations. We also work closely with families dealing with loss and sadness.

This is also a wonderful keepsake from parents who work away to record a quick 20-second good night message for their child to cuddle and hear at bedtime.

The future…

I want my brand to be the truest reflection of myself and my work. I have so many ideas and dreams for where I want to go from here, and this is just the beginning.

I thank you all for your support, belief and being part of my dream. Without each and every one of you, it would not be possible… I am deeply touched and so very grateful. xoxo
