Amy is a newly awarded Winner of the @sawomanaustralia People’s Choice Award for the Mum’s in Business. She is also a mother of little miracles, James and Jack, who were born prematurely at 30 and 34 weeks gestation respectively.
In 2016 during our stay in hospital with James, Amy quickly noticed that the generic baby milestone cards she had purchased weren’t suitable to the NICU journey – we were celebrating the ‘small but mighty’ leaps of a premature baby, such as weaning off oxygen and graduating to special care. When Amy had her first cuddle with James, the nurse took a photo, gave her a notebook and told her to write it all down – journaling these precious moments helped us to heal and gave us strength at a tough time. From this moment, Amy knew she wanted to create a product that both celebrated and documented the unique story of a baby born too soon.
Throughout their experiences, and continued medical complexities with their youngest son Jack, her passion to support and give back to other NICU families has grown! Miracle Mummas donate $2 from every sale to the Miracle Babies Foundation, and continue to ‘pay it forward’.
Amy continues to support, build community and raise awareness and this has turned into her mission, to give back, and to ensure preemie parents know they are not alone – we’ve got your back!
