Founder & CEO

Shannon McLaughlin

The idea to start Ubuntu Baba came from being a frustrated first time Mom who had no idea what she was doing. All I knew was that my baby needed me 24/7, and the only way to make that work for both of us was to have him on my body. It fills my heart with great joy to know that as you're reading these words, there are a whole lot of brand new parents out there, keeping their tiny humans close in their UB carriers.
