Winnipeg’s baby and family services scene is always changing, and it’s nice to see a business expanding its offerings! Bean Family Wellness is one such company that I’m excited to share today.
Its founder, Ilissa Kolly, who previously ran Simply Beautiful Childbirth Services, has combined that business with her photography business, and added a bunch of new services and products into one company that focuses on wellness from pregnancy through the early years.
Here’s a look at what’s offered through Bean Family Wellness:
- Doula services
- Birth wishes consultations
- Birth and newborn photography (Imagery by Bean)
- Free support groups: More Milk: Before Birth & Early Postpartum Preparation Support Group & Winnipeg Positive Birth Group
- An online boutique offering sales and rentals of items such as
- Ameda breast pump rentals and accessories (Ameda rental and retail depot)
- Pumping bras
- TENS machines
- Birth in a Box Eco pool and accessories
Bean Family Wellness is based in Niverville, and offers free pickup locally as well as in several surrounding towns, and free pickup in South Winnipeg once a week. Shipping and doorstep delivery options are also available. See the FAQ for more info.
A little more about Ilissa and her company:
“Bean Family Wellness is a member of the Canadian Birth Photographers Association and the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers. Bean Family Wellness also offers volunteer services through The Tiny Footprints Project, a project supporting families with premature babies living in the NICU.
Ilissa Kolly, owner of Bean Family Wellness is the founder and manager of The Art of Breastmilk Project, a project of Bean Family Wellness.”
She notes that she is currently completing her Childbirth Education Certification through Birth Arts International, and her Certified Herbalist Certification through Heart of Herbs.
Congratulations, Ilissa, on your ever-growing business!
