The Hey Mama Story
Hi there! My Name is Naomi. I am a wife. I am a Mama to two boys. I am a Midwife.
That's me in the photo - holding my hat wearing, chocolate covered first born baby boy.
Ever since I can remember, I have been fascinated with all things pregnancy. Even now, I remain so in awe of what a woman's body is able to do in order to create, grow and give life a beautiful tiny human being, & I cannot believe how lucky I am to share those precious first moments with families, as they begin their journey to parenthood.
Throughout my career I have learned that women can feel very anxious or vulnerable during pregnancy, and often overwhelmed with the vast information that is available to them. Then along comes Covid-19! All of which can make pregnancy especially challenging to navigate.
I also noticed there was a range of subscription boxes on the market providing beauty & make-up products to women, many of which consisted of a candle and a chocolate bar. I wanted to do better for Mums.
I wanted to be able to combine all of these ideas in order to create a self-care pregnancy box that would encompass Mama Empowerment! Providing purposeful self-care items to use, which would be safe in pregnancy and beyond, alongside information, from me as a Midwife, to help mama's on their way.
One of my best friends was growing her own gorgeous bump at that time, and I wanted to celebrate this so I put together a hamper of items that I could not have survived the third trimester without. That accompanied by a handmade guide to Having a baby - bespoke to her, by yours truly.
And there you have it. Lightbulb moment.
The Hey Mama Pregnancy Box was born.
