Who We Are

Hi, I'm Jessica!

I'm a wife and mama to three sweet kiddos and a few furry farm animals that we absolutely love raising our kids with.

In my motherhood journey, I guess I sort of stumbled into attachment parenting, or instinctive parenting, as I usually think of it. I definitely didn't set out to be an "attachment parent". In fact, I'd never even heard of the term back when I first became a mom in 2011. What I soon came to realize is that babies are just happiest when they're "Close to Mom"! Our first baby, in particular, was the most insistent on this preference and his sisters did a pretty solid job following in his footsteps.

I've felt so lucky to make so many meaningful connections with like-minded mamas through the introduction of the Bellifly design, including meeting the best business partner, I could have ever asked for, Uyo Okebie-Eichelberger .  Uyo and I met through a brand collaboration way back in 2016 and upon meeting her I just knew we had to join forces. She is a wife, an amazing mama of two littles and a successful serial entrepreneur with mom and baby brands, Preggo Leggings + You! Lingerie that are sold all over the world including in Nordstrom and Macy's.

Fun fact: we've never met IRL! How's that for a modern day business story?

I'm so looking forward to what the future holds for this small, but mighty pillow, as well as new products that we'll be bringing to you in the near future.

 

 

With Close to Mom, our goal is to bring products to our mom tribe that make pregnancy and motherhood easier, more comfortable and we are SO excited to bring back the highly sought-after 3-in-1 Bellifly Pillow. We also can't wait to show you what else we've been working on...so stay tuned for that!

The heart in our logo is special, in that it represents the babies that immediately become our whole world the minute they are born. ❤️

Thank you for being here, when you join our mom tribe, you become part of our family!
