About A Precious Welcome by owner Emily Webb
A Precious Welcome was started after I honored a friend with an elaborate baby shower.
Family and friends painted onesies for lil’ Isabella, I handmade favors for the guests, and the centerpiece was a 4 foot tall diaper cake. I also created a “shower journal” for all the women to make predictions, wishes, and pass along their knowledge of birth and parenting.
It was an amazing day!
About the same time as the shower, after being inspired by my daughter’s beautiful, natural birth, I realized that I knew NO ONE who had a a natural birth. This revelation was disturbing, seeing as I work in an office where there are generally 3 pregnant women at all times! I heard every horror story there is, and when I started telling my birth story (20 hours of laboring at home, then 2 hours in the hospital before a quick, simple, med-free delivery), they didn’t believed me when I said it wasn’t bad and I would do it again.
I was shocked! I felt birth has been twisted into something scary and now I had personal experience that it doesn’t have to be that way. I started learning more about natural birth and decided I want to help women have positive birth experiences.
I decided I wanted to be a doula. Then I realized I didn’t have the money to pay for the training… Being a social worker may be rewarding, but I’m never gonna get rich doing it. I began A Precious Welcome to fund my training, and hopefully this project will be the first step to a life of watching babies meet their new families!
The other goal of A Precious Welcome is to give babies a special and unique welcome into the world…
and of course to make memories that mama will never forget! Visit us to find diaper cakes, onesie paining kits (for a family project or a whole baby shower), and hand decorated wooden name letters to match baby’s nursery. We have also expanded on diaper cakes to create linen cakes, which are great with cloth diapers, baby layette items, or linens for a bridal shower! Complete a shower with invitations and thank you notes, favors and a shower journal!
Hand decorated wooden name letters are approx. 3″ tall, hung on shimmering organza ribbon (special requests gladly taken).
Each letter is decorated with high quality scrapbook paper and embellished with beautiful accents to compliment your little one’s room perfectly.
The giveaway is for any name up to 10 letters (if you have first and middle names under 10 letters, that’s fine too!) We need to know the colors and theme of the room, and any special things your little one loves, so we can make them as special as possible!
