Oh the holidays. Wrought with everyone’s mixed and varied expectations, constant safety negotiations and delayed flights (thanks covid!) and finding the perfect gift for everyone from “friends” at work, to your father-in-law, to kids and friends. And what about the pregnant people or parents-to-be in your life? Or maybe that’s you!
As a parent and caregiver myself, I know what the most valuable gift is for a new family. Spoiler alert: it’s not the tiny little onesies, classic books or soothing stuffies. Don’t get me wrong, I loved those too, but the most valuable gift I received when I was pregnant and postpartum, was the gift of support.
We work and live on the unceded and occupied territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. Since time immemorial, the original peoples of these lands have cared for their families and communities. We are committed to honouring their teachings, legacy and their sovereignty.
