Behind The Name
Emi + Company was created in honour of owner, Ayako Gallagher's, daughter Emiko. Emi died in a late term missed miscarriage at almost 19 weeks gestation in 2020. The word 'Company' is to honour all the other loss babies that keep Emi company in the stars.
Inspired by the need for easy and quick self care activities, and ways to connect with her daughter, Ayako created Love Letters; Self Care Greeting Cards are filled with writing prompts you write to yourself and reopen when you’re having a hard mental health day. The Angel Card set is designed for loss parents to continue building their relationship with their children who have passed; by writing cards filled with heartfelt prompts, directly to their children.
We so easily reach out to help and lift up our friends and family when they’re feeling down but we often forget to take care of ourselves in those hard moments. Our Love Letters guide you for that all important pep talk.
Ayako and husband Paddy live with their five year old son, Takeo, and baby born after loss, Keiko, in the quaint fishing village of Steveston, near Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Ayako and her family are honoured to reside and work on the unceded and traditional territories of the Musqueam, Kwantlen and Tsawwassen Nations.
