MamAmor’s story started in 2007 when I – Adriana – was pregnant with my third child while studying to be a Birth Doula. In one of my classes, I came across a handmade birthing doll, and I became so fascinated with it, that I decided to create my own! The first doll attempt was not very good looking, but it was a great tool to teach my older children about the upcoming birth, so I decided to make some more to use in my Doula practice.
In 2008, after many changes to the original pattern and many hours deciding on a name, MamAmor Dolls was officially born! Thanks to the support and encouragement of my Doula colleagues and my family, I started to bring the dolls to Parenting, Birthing and Breastfeeding events and conferences, and the business started to grow.
I am a Birth Doula and a mother of 3, who shares her passion for birth by accompanying parents through the process of giving birth and by creating these amazing dolls. I believe that birth is a normal life event, that breastfeeding is a human right, and that bonding early with your child is the foundation of a lifelong loving and trusting relationship. My desire is to share these beliefs with families and soon-to-be parents through education and play with MamAmor Dolls.
Behind the scenes of MamAmor Dolls stands a group of very dedicated and loving mamas committed to creating the best quality product using the best possible materials available. We work independently and together. Some of us are local – Canada- and some of us are from Uruguay, South America.
Kristina, Graciela, Mabel, Alison, Anne and Adriana together, we are happy to bring to life all these mamas and babies for you to enjoy; we are very proud of what we do.
