The OVer Company started because of a need I had back in the beginning of 2015. I had my second daughter at 32 weeks gestation and after our 5 week long stay in the NICU, we brought our 5 lb. baby out of the hospital into the cold germ-filled outside world. I then realized I needed more than just the blanket I was using to keep my tiny baby protected from it all.
Breathability was also very important to me since she had been on monitors for the first weeks of her life. It was now my job as mama to make sure she wasn't overheating and had proper airflow at all times.
I got to work and created the first OVer which worked beautifully as the much-needed car seat cover for sweet little Olive. The OVer was the perfect nursing (or pumping) cover AND I could use it when out shopping with my toddler as a shopping cart cover! The OVer quickly became the one item I never left home without.
After months of requests by those around me to make the OVers, since they were the first of their kind in Canada, The OVer Company was officially launched in October 2015. My husband Michael encouraged me to turn this little hobby into a business and follow my creativity. He came alongside me after 8 months, making this side-hustle a full time career for both him and me.
We have grown this business together, and work closely with the amazing team we have around us at The OVer Company. I am so thankful for the supportive small business community we have in our home town of London, Ontario.
We have expanded The OVer Company product lineup to now include the amazingly soft and versatile Butter Blankets, the nodo collection hats + gowns, and our OVer mama essentials including robes + scrunchies! We love releasing new products and prints to keep our brand fresh and exciting. We know The OVer Company brand will be so loved in your home and we cant wait to show you what is next!
I am proud to design + lead the creative process in the production of all The OVer Company products. Because of the impact the NICU had on our lives, The OVer Company Corporation gives back to families in need of support through Ronald McDonald House and various other organizations.
