These mother-centred care packs have been put together with much love and consideration with the goal of providing mothers (of any season) with practical, low tox and beautiful items to provide support both physically and emotionally during the weeks, months or even years postpartum.
These are the kind of things I tend to include in care-packs when caring for mothers in their homes. When restrictions and limitations on how we were able to provide care and support set in over the course of this year I decided to make these packs more widely available so other mothers can feel just as loved and supported from afar. I have carefully chosen items that encompass some of the more traditional postpartum practices that encourage slowing down, rest, warmth and being nurtured.
I have sourced almost all products locally and from other small businesses whose values align with my own; ethical & organic with respect and care for our bodies as well as the earth. Each pack comes with an information sheet detailing each item and instructions on how to best use them. A complimentary hand-written note can also included. Most packaging is reusable, recyclable or home compostable. I hope you (or a new Mama in your life) love them as much as I have enjoyed putting them together!

Set of two (Tubigrip) elasticated bandages, each cut to 80cm lengths for use in the later stages of pregnancy and into postpartum. Belly wrapping in the days, weeks (and even months) after birth is practiced in many traditional cultures. It can help you feel grounded, supported, and held without the restriction that often occurs with the more commercial recovery type shorts or bands. The larger size can be used in the later stages of pregnancy and first few weeks of postpartum – and the smaller when you are ready. *Contains latex
