about us


I’m Bree, the founder & director of hip & co.

My first-born baby girl, Elle, was diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia at 7 months of age. 

Elle required surgery (a closed reduction), three months in a hip spica cast and then nine months of bracing (Dennis Browne Brace - DBB).

During her hippy journey, we were lucky to be gifted a secondhand table. A table that was bulky and bright, extremely used but a table that nevertheless did the job. It kept Elle seated upright and happily playing with her toys. And gosh did it help me! Those spica casts are heavy!!

I was confused and upset at the time that furniture, for babies and children with hip dysplasia, were not readily anywhere for sale. We were left in to fend for ourselves with make-shift furniture that sat as eyesores in our homes.

Throughout our journey, I came up with the idea of an affordable, accessible, flat packed, easy to assemble and modern-looking hip spica table. And hip & co was born.

Now we're extending our mission to furniture for all babies to get those hips healthy from the get-go.
