From the moment your first bundle of joy arrives self care starts taking a back seat. Becoming a new mom can be a daunting and overwhelming experience, even if you don't have post natal depression added to the mix. People are incredibly generous with baby presents after a birth, but often the new mama gets forgotten in a sea of cute babygros and brightly coloured toys. Roll on a few years (sleepless of course) and add another kid or two into the mix and many women have simply forgotten to include looking after themselves on the never ending to do list.
I created Mama Moments to remind mamas that we are important too. That we cannot pour from an empty cup and that self care is an important part of looking after our mental health. Self care is not a luxury, but a necessity, and it's a lot easier to keep all the balls in the air and be there for the people we love if we've allowed ourselves even 5 minutes with a cup of tea to recharge.
I also wanted to take the opportunity to support the amazing, independent businesses being run by mamas all over Ireland. Where possible Mama Moments boxes will included these wonderful, unique products created by Irish mamas, but we do also partner with small businesses in other countries, and some of them are even led by men :-)
So please, subscribe and treat yourself to a wonderful surprise in the post, or treat someone else who you know needs to make some time for herself.
I hope you love it!
