About the brand
"Mother Nature’s Recipes was created to support mums in a more personal, multi-dimensional way by creating space for mums to practice the importance of self-care. When I became pregnant I had so many preconceptions about how motherhood would be, about how naturally everything would come to me, specifically about being able to breastfeed. However, when the time came, I went through an incredibly difficult time producing enough milk for my baby. I didn’t realise the various processes that affected breastmilk production and I found myself literally on the verge of falling into postpartum depression. I felt incredibly isolated, even with my partner attentively by my side. I struggled, trapped by the feeling of failure in my new role of mum.
After some research, I was able to persevere enough to breastfeed my son until he was 2 years old. After such an ordeal, I began thinking about all the women going through a similar situation on their own. Constantly confronted with how wonderful motherhood is (which it is!) without room for things to not be so perfect or ‘natural’.
I wanted to open up the dialogue around being a mother, to help create a space for mothers to be authentically themselves and not be judged or guilt tripped for it. As an avid herbal tea drinker, especially throughout my pregnancies, in 2017 I created a line of herbal teas in a true bid to support mums throughout various stages of motherhood."
