Mother's Love FAQs

What are your delivery charges? 

All our products are delivered free of charge to any customer in the UK (unfortunately we are not currently shipping to Northern Ireland).

Do you ship internationally?

We regret that we are not currently shipping internationally at present. We hope that this will change in future.

Are all your products safe to use in pregnancy?

All our products have been carefully chosen as they are safe to use in pregnancy. However, some of our products are recommended only at certain stages of pregnancy or postnatally. Where this is the case this is indicated clearly in the product listing on the website. Please get in touch with us if you have any questions and we’ll be happy to help.

We always recommend checking with your midwife or medical professional if you wish to discuss if a product is entirely appropriate for you. 

I'm planning an elective caesarean, and one of your products isn't suitable for me. Can you substitute some products please?

We are happy to report that many of our products are multi purpose! For example, Natural Birthing Company’s Down Below Perineal Massage Oil, supplied in our Birth Box, is also suitable for use on stretch marks. Nourishing Mama's Postpartum Healing Herbs will equally be beneficial to all women. Birth Blends' HEAL Post-Birth Perineal Spray can also be used on a healing caesarean scar (although it's not to be used on open wounds). Maternity pads are also necessary after a caesarean birth. Please get in touch in advance if you feel a product really won’t be right for you, and we’ll do our best to provide a suitable available alternative.

How do you ensure environmental sustainability in your business?

All the businesses we work with use natural, organic ingredients and make products that are cruelty free. Nipper & Co, who make wonderful teas, and Organyc, who produce the First Days Maternity Pads, are Soil Association certified for their organic credentials. Natural Birthing Company is also certified by The Vegan Society. Our candles are supplied by Vegan Bunny as well as Nellie & Grace, two wonderful businesses doing amazing things. Vegan Bunny produces beautiful vegan candles with pure essential oils and has a plastic free, carbon neutral philosophy. They also plant trees on our behalf! Nellie & Grace produce their candles from 100% essential oils with unbleached cotton wicks and 100% soy wax. Our lip balms supplied by fabulous Bliss Botanicals are also made with vegan friendly Candelilla wax.

All our boxes are made of recycled Kraft card, and we encourage you to reuse or recycle them. Our packaging includes natural recyclable raffia and PH neutral recycled tissue paper. The vast majority of our products come presented in paper, card, or glass. Our Organyc Maternity Pads come packaged in recyclable bioplastic. Birdsong London supply our beautiful scrunchies which they make from offcut fabric left over from their current fashion collections; they're also produced in London for Living Wages. We also supply our beautiful floral eye masks from Jade Elizabeth, a sustainable fashion brand from Scotland who make use of fabric offcuts in their lovely creations to reduce waste.
