Crunch Natural Parenting

Crunch Natural Parenting is your local mom & pop boutique for natural baby goods! There was an unmet need in our community for a place that people could go to in person to find natural parenting information and products, so in June of 2015, we decided to create one with our Dunedin location. In December of 2018, we opened our brand new Seminole Heights location at Community Roots Collective! We carry cloth diapers, baby carriers, amber teething necklaces, and so much more. Our focus on great products, vibes, and customer service is what our customers love the most about us!

Full Cylce Loss Support

Full Cycle Loss Support provides free doula services to people transitioning out of pregnancy. Our goal is to give compassionate, non-medical, care to those experiencing termination and loss. Our doulas provide emotional and educational counsel to individuals and in group settings.

Full Cycle bridges the gap in support for people experiencing miscarriage, stillbirth and termination. Our doulas are able to support those before, during and after a pregnancy release with their educated counsel as well as emotional support.

We often don't talk about loss. This is the problem. We need to be talking about it. Learning how to have those hard conversations is a vital component to simply being a human. Since everyone doesn't have a safe space to speak aloud, Full Cycle holds monthly support group meetings at The Community Roots Collective every 2nd Monday of the month at 7pm. Anyone is welcome to come and share their story and to be heard and supported in a loving environment.
