Remembering A Pivotal Summer Four Years Ago

A bit of background to how Babies, Business + Breakfast™ began

Hi, my name is Amy and I’ve been hiding from the internet since early July 2020 (read my previous few posts for more info).

Time to reintroduce myself for new scrollers and old faithfuls (in case you missed me)! 👀

This photo is from July 2016 when we had our first son in England.

It’s two weeks after an emergency c-section birth and I’m slooooowly and painfully walking (if you can call it that) around Queen’s Park in London. In my comfy trousers–pants are undies there–which are also my PJs at times.

My Mom snapped it after arriving from Canada to meet her first grandkid and help me leave our flat more often as my husband had to return to work. I can hardly wash a teacup without crying–this really happened–and I’m not supposed to carry anything heavier than my baby…he was 99th percentile, so I had to level up quick!

Despite all of this, I figured out how to get him in an extra long baby wrap based on a YouTube video, left the house before 10 a.m. with a bundle of babe on the outside of my belly (so bizarre) and waddled down to meet Grandma at the Thameslink after her long flight. I am winning at life. 🏆

Things were going so well. Why not join a 10-week startup program in one of the busiest areas of the city with my newborn while I was at it? So I did. Sporting those very same trousers, baby wrap, my little dude and a laptop at times.

Four years and another kid later, I haven’t stopped bringing my WHOLE self into business settings (children included).

The End.


Ok – not really.

BUT this is the beginning of the story about how I started Babies, Business + Breakfast™, a growing community of parents who want to invest in themselves alongside their loved ones.

They attend our events, read our newsletters and believe the future of work includes making space for them, alongside their families.

Our programming is designed with yours and your family’s needs at the top of the priority list. Not as an afterthought!

Because you’re not the only one who wants to do what you do, alongside the ones you love.
