Located in the Ritchie neighborhood, Two Mothers is Edmonton's expert baby store for carriers, cloth diapers, breastfeeding and more!
products for families
Two Mothers is a physical store in Edmonton that is focused on service; we do not operate an online store because we hope to meet families in person and help them meet their needs. This website is designed to help you familiarize yourself with us and the brands we carry in-store.
How we started
It all started because one mom helped another...
Babies are overwhelming and it helps to know you're not alone. When Joanna Haydaman had her first of three children, she wasn't aware of the deeply-rooted support network within Edmonton. She decided she wanted to cloth diaper but the information online was overwhelming - then she was introduced to a store named Birth Source. There she learned about cloth diapering and babywearing and so much more. The experience was not just about the products they carried - it was about the support offered from one parent to another. She worked there for a couple years as her family grew, offering support to those who came through its doors. When Birth Source closed in 2013, Joanna knew she wanted to open a store with the same principle of support in mind and to offer the Edmonton area their own source for great products.
How we operate
We are a store that supports families and we operate our store in a family-friendly way. This means that our store is run by working parents who often bring their children to work with them. We encourage feeding babies at our store. We have comfy chairs set up if you sit for feeding, a kettle on-hand to help in the preparation of bottles and a microwave that staff can access if one is needed. Breast, bottle or however you feed your baby, your personal level of comfort is our priority and we will not ask you to use a cover or be in isolation. Children can crawl around the store and we have a play area with a kitchen, a very coveted vintage train, and lots of handheld toys.
How we help
The products we offer are thoughtfully selected with an emphasis on Canadian companies. Our staff are experienced with many of the products we sell because we have used them ourselves. We are unparallelled in our training with baby carriers; all our staff have personal experience with the use of multiple carriers, we have staff with formal training and staff who operate independent babywearing education businesses. Some of our staff offer workshops in our space when the store is closed (dates can be found in the events section of our Facebook page when they are announced). We all have varying experiences with breastfeeding and one staff member is even a volunteer peer-support educator. We offer a welcoming space for LGBTQ2S+ families and work for an inclusive space in language and action.
Though we are located in Edmonton, we help many families living in rural Alberta so if you are unable to come in, please contact us so we can help you.
