The Story of Hygge Birth and Baby
Tara and Miki met in 2006 while working at the same employee benefits firm. They became close friends and a second family to each other. They also had a shared vision for empowering women, supporting communities and a desire to start a company that would have a lasting impact on the community. After experiencing four very different births between the two of them, Tara and Miki found themselves serving as sounding boards for other women, and their passion for birth work began. Bringing together their unique understanding from their own births with their passion and commitment for expanding choices available to women, they completed their doula certification and started working as doulas, helping women to create their own ideal birth experiences. As doulas they were immediately struck by how great the need for additional resources was for families. Passionate about educating women about their health, pregnancies, choices in childbirth, breastfeeding and family life, they set out to create a company that had all the aspects of hygge.
Hygge, as Tara and Miki found, was the perfect word that describes the deep sense of peace that comes with being surrounded by relaxing settings, family, and love. Hygge Birth and Baby was born!
In addition to Hygge Birth and Baby, Miki sits on the board for ACE Scholarships and the Rocky Mountain Children’s Health Foundation, and Tara sits on the board for Work Options for Women.
