About Our Postpartum Care Mission
Mom Friends is a Canadian, woman-owned company dedicated to eliminating shame and secrecy around birth, advocating for better postpartum care, and making sure every new mom receives a beautiful, practical postpartum recovery kit.
We are committed to supporting other Canadian businesses and many of the products in our care packages are sourced from small and women-run businesses across Canada.
Who We Are
Hi! My name is Karen, I'm a solo mama to a fiery little boy named Leo, and together we pack and ship every postpartum care package from our home just outside Ottawa. When you order from us we know your name, I write your card by hand, and we take special care when packing your box because we know it's going to someone you love.
Every customer is truly important to us, and we are grateful to you for supporting our small family business!
Mom Friends was founded in 2017 by three Ottawa moms named Aviva, Lisa and Liz. As they assembled postpartum care kits for friends, they noticed that there was a lot of stigma around the postpartum period and the unique needs that birthing people have in the weeks and months after a baby arrives. They sought to address that stigma by creating practical, intimate and thoughtful postpartum care kits, and Mom Friends was born. I purchased the business in 2021 and continue to uphold the mission.
