About the Owner

Jessica Featherstone is the owner of Close to the Heart and lives in Cedarburg with a rambunctious preschooler, her husband, and a German Shepherd. She is also a Certified Babywearing Consultant and Postpartum Doula.

In 2014, Jessica had her first child and had issues finding the right nursing bra and baby carrier for her. Eventually, she found Milwaukee Babywearing and decided to volunteer. This lead to her love of baby carriers and working with postpartum women. She went on to certify as a Babywearing Consultant with the Center for Babywearing Studies and train as a postpartum doula.

One thing Jessica realized is that the Ozaukee area doesn’t have a ton of choices for good nursing bras and baby carriers. With this in mind, she decided to open a new boutique in Cedarburg that focuses on items to make a mother’s life easier. Thank you to Nancy Camden for the photo of Jessica and Sky.
