Birthdays are a big deal at Kindred Bravely. From our own birthdays to our KB birthdays (work anniversaries) to KB’s birthday (it’s our fourth anniversary!), we love having a chance to reflect on each passing year, celebrate what's happened so far, and look ahead at what could come next.
This spring, we’re incredibly honored to partner with the Superhero Project, which raises money to help families with babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). For each pair of pajamas purchased during our Mother’s Day Sale, we’ll donate a pair to the Superhero Project.
Kindred Bravely Founder Deeanne Akerson shares her tips on becoming a mom entrepreneur: "I understand how challenging – and exciting – it can be to begin your journey as a mom entrepreneur. I was there, just a few years ago. Before I started Kindred Bravely, I was a high school math teacher. I had no idea how to become an entrepreneur, and the learning curve was steep. In fact, I’m still learning so much every day, an unexpected and invigorating benefit of my career shift. Since founding Kindred Bravely, I’ve discovered a few things that might help other moms on their journeys as entrepreneurs."
Sarah, our Social Media Manager, invites you to look past the social media version of motherhood. She writes, "Before having kids, and even after my first son was born, I had this image in my mind of what our days would be like and what kind of mom I would be... I was a mess most days, just trying to cover the basics and make sure everyone was fed. Sure, I’d have my shining moments where the baby would be smiling just right or we managed to make it to the zoo for an afternoon, and I would always make sure to document it on my favorite social media channels as proof.

From partners and family, to new and old friends, community is super important for busy moms.

As a new mom, I quickly learned there were two absolute must-haves for me: comfortable clothes and a caring community. I was fortunate to find several encouraging mom groups that were local to me: Stroller Strides, MOPs, and most importantly, a breastfeeding support group, but I knew several women who didn’t have those resources close to them.
While breastfeeding is one of the most natural things a mom can do for her child, that doesn’t mean it’s easy or even intuitive. Whether you’re figuring out how to hold your infant, what her cries mean, or why he doesn’t seem to latch, nursing can feel completely overwhelming, especially when you’re running on just a few hours of sleep.
Every mom's journey towards motherhood is different; some moms never have morning sickness, others endure all day nausea for months on end. Some women deliver after only a few pushes, others go through days of labor. No matter the experience, all moms do amazing things to bring their babies into the world.
Some of our favorite reviews are about our customer service team, the incredible women who work behind the scenes to make sure everything is “just right” for every mom. They address technical issues, assist with bra fit, and respond to customer feedback. Like our Kindred BraveMoms, they're generous and encouraging, and we're thrilled to have them as representatives.
Bringing a child into the world is a unique experience for every woman, whether vaginal or Cesarean. If you dig deep enough, you’ll find that you need no more assurance of your personal strength and success as a mother than to look at your baby.
As busy moms, you know how important it is to have a supportive team, from partners and family, to new and old friends, community is super important. That's one of the reasons I'm so excited to introduce you to my incredible social media team.
