OUR STORY

Hi, I’m Bron!

Wife to Dean, mom to Harlow (6) and Bear (nearly 2), and someone who thrives when around my friends and community. I love people (and animals!), and am very unapologetically honest – which sometimes gets me in trouble. But I have a passion for bringing people together, helping them to feel empowered, and I think I’m a pretty good listener. I have learnt in my journey that motherhood can feel overwhelming and incredibly lonely, no matter how much or how little support you have. It is also incredible, and watching my little humans grow is wonderfully fulfilling.

Come as you are

Leave all judgements at the door

I call it crazy beautiful

The Village started as an idea to help women support women and evolved into creating a community for like-minded moms that is unapologetically honest, helping each other to adapt in the ever-evolving chapters of motherhood. I also wanted to create a unique baby boutique, showcasing the incredible talent that we have in South Africa. Giving online brands a physical store to present their products in, so customers could touch and feel them, and buy from multiple retailers but avoid the multiple delivery charges. This has now evolved into a unique online store as well, helping customers to create gorgeous, unique baby registries from anywhere in SA, or spoil themselves with a few different brands at the same time.

The idea of membership for the café was not to be ‘exclusive’, but rather that I wanted people to feel a part of a safe community, where they could create bonds and openly learn from each other. To realise you’re not alone in this journey of motherhood, and to feel the all embracing warmth as you walk through the doors and be part of something ‘inclusive’.
We share hard truths here daily. We laugh together. We cry together.

Come as you are. Leave all judgements at the door.

Bespoke Baby Store

At the entrance to The Village is a bespoke baby store, selling some of South Africa’s most beautiful local brands that are more often found online. Whether you’re looking for a gift, or something awesome for your own little ones, it’s a one stop shop from baby to nursery decor to mom’s essentials. The retail store is open to the public, and leads to the entrance of the private café.

Private Cafe

Members and their guests are welcome into The Village Café – hosting a delicious menu and incredible coffees and teas. Ready-made baby food is on sale as well, and a little menu for our toddler friends.

Play Area

For babies up to 2 years old, there is a soft play and feast full of sensory play items, which is in a fenced off area to protect our little crawlers and walkers. This play area is open for moms to enjoy with their little ones, but qualified, awesome minders will be there to help if you need a break and some time out – guilt free!

Workstations

Communal work space and private work area is available to members as well. Unlimited, free wifi and the minders are available to you if you are bringing your baby to work! Take a break from the laptop to play with or feed your little one, but know that while you’re working, they are having a ball with their friends, or peacefully being put down for a nap just a few steps away from you.
