Melissa is the mastermind behind josiah+co. She developed her first crochet pattern in 2017 because she couldn't find any modern bootie options that she liked. She's made these patterns available in the shop because she wants you to be able to make them too!

Melissa talks about grief a lot. She's been pregnant ten times, and has three tiny humans here to show for it (you can often find them dancing on our Instagram stories); the other seven are waiting for her somewhere in the stars.

Melissa is passionate about building supportive communities for those impacted by Pregnancy + Infant Loss. She started josiah+co. as a way to share her pregnancy loss journey and to help others feel less alone in their grief.

You can find her in Hamilton, ON, sipping a latte, munching on donuts and chasing around her three precious kiddos.
