Special stuff, made specially for special little people.

We love crocheting. We love supporting women. We love attending births. And we love animals.
We love that we found a way to combine all the things we love!

We are Greater Manchester Doulas CIC, full spectrum doulas in Manchester, UK, supporting women on their reproductive journeys.
We are vegan, which means we only work with non-animal fibres, of the highest quality.

Most of our items are crocheted while waiting on a baby. Our job requires a lot of on call, so we wait without waiting by crocheting. Once we get the call the woman often tells us she's in early labour and she'll call again when she wants us to be with her, so we crochet to while away the time. When we arrive at a birth we usually get our crochet out, which reduces adrenaline and promotes oxytocin in the room. We crochet while we reassure and encourage the labouring woman, and by the time the baby's ready to be born they usually have a new hat or bootees to welcome them into the world. (And if we're lucky we've caught up with some orders!)

Shop members

  • Lori


    Don't be fooled by Lauren AKA Lori - her face may not have aged since she was a toddler, but she is chock full of wisdom, and has more patience in her little toe than most people accrue in a lifetime. She also raps in her car.

  • Elle


    Elle likes vegan takeout, watching Netflix in the bath, her dogs, and Weezer. That's about it. Definitely not selfies.
