Having a baby is one of the single biggest challenges you will face in your lifetime. It also brings the most rewards. For some Kiwi mums the births of their children creates an opportunity for them to combine their pre-baby skills and knowledge with their new family commitments, for others starting a home business is a way to bring in a much-needed second income without sacrificing time with their children.
OHbaby! was founded by one such Mum, Angela Pedersen, in 2000. Although her first child, Ella, wasn't born until 2005, Angela wanted to create a business that she could run from home whilst still being a stay at home Mum. The success of OHbaby! is a testament to the many hours that Angela, and her husband Royce, put into developing the site in those early days, and that they have continued to put in over the ensuing years.
OHbaby! is still staffed entirely by parents, many of whom work from home, and we know how much time and energy goes into running a home business, especially when you are also running a busy household!
