Coastal Path Creations was founded in July 2013, 13 months after my eldest daughter was born. I wanted to create my own business, build it from the ground up, and not have to put my daughter into childcare so I could work for someone else. I discovered a couple teething and nursing necklaces after being clawed at for weeks on end, but there was not much on the market and nothing suited my style, and if it did, it didn't suit my budget! I decided to start my business designing and making necklaces for Mums to wear whilst nursing their babies.
In hindsight, I was in fact just adding a business into a very demanding lifestyle, but luckily, it worked!
Now, a few years down the line, 2 more children, a house, A LOT more stock, we are still going, and loving it! There are wonderful parts of running your own business, and some not so wonderful (like the 12am website crashes and running out of stock as an order is placed) but throughout the journey, there have been so many highs!
I am passionate about breastfeeding support, which is reflected in my creation of the badges and keyrings, and also in my role as a peer supporter. All parenting milestones should be celebrated!
I keep my prices as low as possible, to make it affordable for Mums to buy a necklace for themselves. Being a parent is tough, and Mums deserve to treat themselves! So go ahead and pick something for yourself, guilt free - you deserve it!
