It started with a question I had been asking myself for years, not only professionally, but also on a personal level...
WHY AREN'T WOMEN TOLD THESE THINGS?
The need to address this, inspired me to create a platform where women could feel more engaged and supported during their prenatal to postpartum journey. Knowledge empowers and with it, can bring a community together who are better equipped to make proactive choices which not only benefit their health and nutritional needs, but those of their baby.
with this, maternally happy was born!
My name is Caitlin, the founder of Maternally Happy.
I am a Registered Midwife, Nurse & Nutrition Consultant based in Melbourne, Australia.
Through my experience working in the healthcare industry and drawing on my own health journey, two significant areas of concerns have been identified.
- Our approach to healthcare has become reactive, rather than proactive.
- We have lost sight of the importance of nutrition in achieving holistic and optimal health outcomes.
Women's health is a personal and intimate journey. We want to make sure that every woman, no matter their story, possesses the knowledge and confidence to make a positive impact on their life, their baby’s life and the lives of others.
Our vision at Maternally Happy is to help create a new health focus for women so they have a greater awareness of the connection, between their internal and external health environment. We want to nurture this holistic approach by offering a carefully selected range of natural products which can help optimise your health, and support you through each season of motherhood.
WHY CHOOSE MATERNALLY HAPPY?
Our brand is body-positive and aimed towards improving women’s overall health. We are passionate about what we do, our products, and most of all, our beautiful community. Our products are designed, formulated and manufactured in Australia to the highest standards, to support you through all stages of motherhood.
We carefully consider and select premium health based products, because you and your baby deserve the very best. The raw materials sourced and used are tested for their purity and potency which ensure their safety and efficacy.
By investing in your health, you invest in your baby's future.
WHY THE SLOTH?
Did you notice the Mum and baby sloth at the top of our logo?
If not, now you have!
Unfortunately society today has become predominantly focused on what's negative in the world, rather than looking at the positives ☼
'Glass half empty' type thinking, instead of 'glass half full'. This can take a toll on our health, wellbeing and general state of happiness. Sometimes we need to take a step back and be reminded of the positive, joyful times in life, such as pregnancy, the birth of a precious new life or even simply, for some women, regulating their menstrual cycle.
Our sloth is a friendly reminder to remain positive and to be cool, calm and collected. Don't stress the small things, let us take care of that for you.
