“You go through big chunks of time where you’re just thinking, ‘This is impossible- oh this is impossible.’ And then you just keep going and keep going, and you sort of do the impossible.” Tina Fey 

To my fellow Moms,

Greetings and a warm welcome to Kindred Bravely.

My name is Deeanne Akerson, I’m the founder of Kindred Bravely and am thrilled you have found us.

You know, the story of Kindred Bravely is a story about me.

But more importantly, it’s a story about you.

Let me explain…

As a mom of two active and wonderful young boys aged three and five, I truly believe motherhood is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

I adore spending time with my sons and I love watching them grow day by day.

We have so much fun together.  

And yet being a mom is a serious business; I believe that we moms are growing the future—one child at a time.

brighter future.

Every time we water our kids’ garden with unconditional love and support, we quite literally move one step closer to creating a better world, filled with productive and compassionate adults.

But just like Tina said, being a mom is not only ‘love and lights’.  

It can be downright hard.

Even impossible at times.

We all know about the sleepless nights and the painful labor.

But no one really tells you about the painful and annoying moments.   

The excruciatingly sore nipples during breastfeeding.

Or the ‘oh so itchy’ and scratchy maternity gear.

Or the little daily (sometimes hourly!) annoyances- like those stupid clasps on those maternity bras that you simply can’t open especially when juggling a young baby in your arms.  

When I had my first son, I practically threw my hands up in the air in desperation trying to find clothes that actually helped rather than hindered me.    

I discovered clothes fell into two categories. They were either really pretty but hopelessly impractical or super ugly but functional.

In my book, neither was acceptable.

So one day, after realizing I literally hated every single piece of maternity gear in my closet, I decided to stop complaining and to do something about it.

My third child--Kindred Bravely-- was ‘born’.  A company devoted to creating maternity and postpartum clothes that are effortlessly chic and beautiful but also comfy and practical.  

Our work as expectant or breastfeeding moms is the most important work in the world.   

It stands to reason we deserve to look and feel great all the time.    

Which brings me to the subject of my company’s name… why did I choose the name Kindred Bravely?   

The way I see it, as new moms, we’ve got to stick together. We’re family now. We have the same struggles and the same desires. Which is what the Kindred stands for.

And Bravely? Well, being a mom can be tough.  It’s not for the fainthearted.

It takes courage—bravery-- to be a mom.

In fact, I actually believe that each one of us is a superhero.   

And that’s where we come in.  

Because our clothes have been meticulously designed to make your superhero journey easier.

Like motherhood, this company is built on love.  

And that love has literally been poured into each item of clothing in our line. . (Hey, I even personally hand-pick the fabrics at the factory myself to ensure you get the softest, prettiest and most durable gear out there).  

I hope you can feel the difference…

We’re here for you.  To help, listen, and join you on this wild superhero ride that is motherhood and to succeeding at the impossible.

Happy mothering.  Happy nursing.

And don’t forget to be you bravely,
Deeanne Akerson

8. Promotion Restrictions

8.1. You are free to promote your own web sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions KindredBravely.com could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by KindredBravely.com. For example, advertising commonly referred to as "spamming" is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name. Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited email. In addition, you may not
advertise in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain name, or your return email address. You may use mailings to customers to promote KindredBravely.com so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or web site, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may post to social
media groups to promote KindredBravely.com so long as the group specifically welcomes such messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from KindredBravely.com. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the KindredBravely.com Affiliate Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.

8.2. Affiliates that among other keywords or exclusively bid in their Pay-Per-Click campaigns on keywords such as KindredBravely.com, KindredBravely, www.KindredBravely, www.KindredBravely.com, and/or any misspellings or similar alterations of these – be it separately or in combination with other keywords – and do not direct the traffic from such campaigns to their own website prior to re-directing it to ours, will be considered trademark violators, and will be banned from KindredBravely’s Affiliate Program. We will do everything possible to contact the affiliate prior to the ban. However, we reserve the right to expel any trademark violator from our affiliate program without prior notice, and on the first occurrence of such PPC bidding behavior.

8.3. Affiliate shall not transmit any so-called “interstitials,” “Parasiteware™,” “Parasitic Marketing,” “Shopping Assistance Application,” “Toolbar Installations and/or Add-ons,” “Shopping Wallets” or “deceptive pop-ups and/or pop-unders” to consumers from the time the consumer clicks on a qualifying link until such time as the consumer has fully exited KindredBravely’s site (i.e., no page from our site or any KindredBravely.com’s content or branding is visible on the end-user’s screen). As used herein a. “Parasiteware™” and “Parasitic Marketing” shall mean an application that (a) through accidental or direct intent causes the overwriting of affiliate and non affiliate commission tracking cookies through any other means than a customer initiated click on a qualifying link on a web page or email; (b) intercepts searches to redirect traffic through an installed software, thereby causing, pop ups, commission tracking cookies to be put in place or other commission tracking cookies to be overwritten where a user would under normal circumstances have arrived at the same destination through the results given by the search (search engines being, but not limited to, Google, Bing, Yahoo, and similar search or directory engines); (c) set commission tracking cookies through loading of KindredBravely site in IFrames, hidden links and automatic pop ups that open KindredBravely.com’s site; (d) targets text on web sites, other than those web sites 100% owned by the application owner, for the purpose of contextual marketing; (e) removes, replaces or blocks the visibility of Affiliate banners with any other banners, other than those that are on web sites 100% owned by the owner of the application.
