Who We Are

Behind the scenes at NZ based brand Close to the Heart are two mamas, Alex and Michele (who are also sisters in law!) With four boys and two baby girls between them, Alex and Michele were inspired by their own journeys into motherhood, and their challenges finding breastfeeding friendly clothes that really "felt like us." A few years on, Close to the Heart was created.
