BabyHub are an innovative brand who are reaching out to the parent and carers of infants who enjoy the benefits of well designed, effective, easy to use baby products.
We wanted to come to you with a little history in our “all about us”.
The BabyHub Team
BabyHub’s founder is designer, Catherine Curtis. Catherine is a mum, and has worked as a nanny, childminder and foster carer. Therefore she has looked after a lot of babies! Catherine used to work as an artist while based in the mountains of Valencia. She is now based in Jersey, at the centre of BabyHub’s R&D HQ. Before that, Catherine worked as a successful artist, for example winning in the JJ Fox international art competition.
In August 2020 Amanda Overland became the newest member of the team, in the role of CEO. Amanda is a single mother of two teenage daughters and fully understands the journey from pregnancy to “toddlerhood” and beyond. “When my girls were born there was nothing around like these products and I really knew the market, as we lived half our time in London (in the pre-digital days!). When I saw the Neospace bedside crib and the Sleepspace travel cot, I was really blown away, Catherine has done a fantastic job of the design.” Amanda has experience of manufacture, distribution and route-to-market having built her own brand, Fizbag (reusable shopping bags).
Finally Catherine turned her creative focus to product design. She studied innovation and gained a BSc (Hons) Degree First Class. As a result her design ability combined with an obsessive focus on products (Catherine is diagnosed with high functioning autism) and experience of child care resulted in the creation of a unique baby travel cot, the SleepSpace. Going from concept to finished product took several years and the addition of around twenty more people! The shareholders and directors of Babyhub Ltd include some with extensive international business experience. Furthermore there are many more exciting products in development.
Patents and manufacturing

Our logisitics are based in Dunstable and our travel cot, like all travel cots (tell us otherwise if you hear of one) is made in China. Some are assembled elsewhere but still manufactured in China. Furthermore we have visited the factory and have an agent in Beijing. Here’s a picture of the pattern cutting room in the factory:
