OHbaby! is the love child of Angela and Royce
Pedersen. In early 2000 they spent the summer camping with
their family as the always do. The break away from the
stresses of work and getting back to the basics, spending time with
family and friends and enjoying life for the most important things
in it got them thinking - 'there's more to life than
Angela and Royce were keen to break out and start a business for
themselves that would allow Angela to work from home when they had
kids. They believe the role of a parent in this world is the
most important one they will ever have and to be there for their
kids was a priority. They also thought if they could help
others by providing them with the information they need to get
their family off to a good start then, even if they made no money
but acheived this goal, it would be worth it.
Their dream was to provide quality, useful and thorough
information about planning a child (what people are getting into),
a step by step guide through pregnancy and then how to raise a baby
and child as the early years of life are the most important
years! They wanted to provide all of New Zealand with an
online community of Kiwi's that could share stories and support
each other and share the joy their children brings to them!
Years later OHbaby! is still growing from strength to strength,
and Royce and Angela have had three children of their
own Ella, Eva and Jesse. "I have so much more planned now
to offer our members and visitors than I ever dreamed was possible
and I'm so excited to watch as OHbaby! grows and to watch and chat
on our forums! It is the best feeling to know that all the blood,
sweat and tears that we have put into making OHbaby! is really
helping people and growing a real community on the site, I just
love all our members, we're so thankful for them!' says Angela.
