As a midwife...
I am often asked about what products I would recommend for mums and their babies. I have made it a life goal to research and source the best sustainable brands that will benefit and support families. I have personally done in-depth research and tested each of these brands and have recommended them to my patients and online community for years. I hope you find this useful in making your motherhood journey just that much easier and greener.
I am so excited to give you a discount code for everything Haakaa related! I remember the first time I saw a Haakaa pump at work and I thought it was magic! How can something so compact, soft and completely sustainable draw out so much milk?! If you haven’t seen the Haakaa pump at work, you must! It is both a manual pump and a tool to catch let-down, It suctions to one breast, whilst you are feeding your bub on the other. Hands-free, with no cords, electricity or noise! Haakaa was created by a mum, for mums. Their entire range is phenomenal, so innovative and is made using food-grade silicone #yahfornoplastics! AND to top it off I have a Haakaa Discount Code!

Beautiful Lovekins was created by a mother for her daughter who had a dry skin condition as a baby. Lovekins creates all-natural baby skin care products (using Australian superfoods like Kakadu Plum!!!), nappies using Australian cotton that are toxic-free and natural, as well as women's sanitary pads! I mean, come on! Lovekins constantly blows me away!
Genetic testing is something I have grown increasingly passionate about. Both my partner and I did genetic testing prior to trying for our baby, what an empowering choice!

BodyICE Woman creates these super convenient breast and perineal maternity hot and cold gel packs for new mums. These gel packs really help to soothe your body post childbirth! As a midwife, I always encourage mums to place cool packs on the perineum to help with inflammation and of course to help soothe. And the breast pads are a game-changer when it comes to treating engorgement, blocked milk ducts, mastitis and soreness associated with breastfeeding. These fit comfortably in your bra, and you can pop them in as you go about your day.
Franjos Kitchen… where do I start! My absolute favourite brand for delicious, nourishing products, ladies! This brand was started by a mama duo and creates wholesome snacks to support a woman on her pregnancy and breastfeeding journey. The company also offers delicious Kinder cookies. All products are vegan, and only use natural ingredients, making their products nutritious and delicious. #milkmilkmilk

Edwards & Co
After ALL the research I could possibly do, we settled on the amazing co-sleeper and cot from Edwards and Co. A beautiful NZ owned, family brand that creates the highest quality (at reasonable prices) furniture for little ones!
What we put in our mouth, twice a day, everyday MATTERS and that’s why I am obsessed with Grin Natural! This incredible family-owned, NZ based brand is truly something else. Their mission encompasses everything I believe in. Not only are their toothpaste’s fresh, natural, and something I am excited to use - their products are biodegradable and GOOD for the planet (toothbrushes made from cornstarch #heaven).
“Back in 2013 with the surge of organic food and natural products we started to look at the ingredients in our toothpaste. Unable to find a toothpaste on the market that was 100% natural without any added chemicals we set out to make a new kind of toothpaste to treat our teeth and mouths to something better.”
