We LOVE supporting our local Work at Home Moms so we decided we will be doing a monthly spotlight on an awesome WAHM in our community!
The first spotlight shines on Gemma D. Wilson - half of the team behind Bosom Buddy Bakers.
Bosom Buddy Bakers specializes in lactation cookies and energy bars that are packed full of goodness to help moms encourage a stronger milk supply and give them that boost of energy that all new parents need.
The business began simply from a conversation on a terrific local moms group #TCMG. The mamas were chatting about lactation cookies and were wondering if anyone sold them and the perfect business for Gemma was born. She said she did and within the first days of business, 11 dozen cookies were sold. This then grew further when Gemma sent a late night text to her bosom buddy baker Shannon - a perinatal nurse from BC Women's Hospital - who happened to have also been present and a great support to Gemma during her own birth. Shannon is the mixologist and develops their seasonal lines like pumpkin spice!
The most popular flavours are the signature Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, which Gemma likes to call “the OCC” , and the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. “I want to marry it,“ says Gemma.
We asked Gemma what her favorite part about owning her business has been and she said
“Hearing success stories from moms! I had a mom actually weaning her child but wanting to pump. She woke up engorged! She was so happy. Also, it’s great to hear they’re delicious and dangerous right out of the oven. #maternitypantsforever one mom said!”
Wondering how you can get your hands on some of their delicious milk making treats?
Easy, follow them on Facebook. They have a weekly delivery dates for their tri-cities clients. Cookies come as ready to bake frozen pucks, baked or dry mixes. They also have gift certificates that make great baby shower gifts!
