Mama Hug Postpartum Self Care Kits: Our Story
Welcome to Mama Hug – a beautiful collaboration between two forward-thinking mamas with five children between them and a passion for postpartum maternal care. Our founders are Catherine, who is mum to Clementine and Raffy, and Victoria, who has three children – Sophie, Hugo and Elijah. Having experienced birth every which way, these two mamas, who have been friends since high school, know only too well that when it comes to gifts for new mums, the options are on the slim side.
While both on maternity leave, postpartum chat turned to how their babies seemed to get all the gifts, care and attention, while the focus on them was sorely lacking (‘sore’ being the operative word). If only someone had thought to gift a soothing sitz bath, a gentle perineal spray, a good nipple cream or a decent peri bottle… There and then Mama Hug was born – a premium gift service specialising in postpartum care kits and gifts for new mums.
With a shared vision and multitudes of personal experience in healing post-birth, Victoria and Catherine set about gathering together a range of healthy and safe products, many from small female-led business, just like their own. Everything you’ll find in a Mama Hug postpartum care kit has been selected, tried and tested, and been given a big tick by the Mama Hug team. And the result is something truly special for good friends to gift their new-mama mates.
Mama Hug postpartum care kits really are the ultimate gift for new mums; because what new mamas really want is something that eases their discomfort, helps them heal and a little luxury to remind them that they are still beautiful.
Each box will bring joy and relief to every wonderful new mum who is gifted it, and when she receives her Mama Hug care kit, it will feel like she’s being given a big hug.
And there’s nothing like a Mama Hug!
