Mothers day

By: Amy Hope

Mother’s day isn’t just about your mother, it might be about your partner who is a mum, or yourself, or someone you know who is a mum.

Motherhood is a very complex role in life. I have wanted to be a mother since I was in my mid twenties but due to many factors I have only just be able to call myself a mum at the age of forty.

This has been an emotional journey that has ended in so much joy and love that words don’t even begin to describe it. I may not be the birth mother of my daughter but am very much her mum and parent. Bridging the gap between mother and father in a same sex marriage is interesting and challenging.

Think about what your mother has done for you and others, how much she has given up for you and gone through for you. It’s easy to forget how hard being a mum can be. You are constantly in demand and being judged by others, society, yourself and your children. So give some love back this mothers day.



For mums to be we have a variety of great gifts for you to be pampered and looked after. Did you know eating dates in the weeks before you give birth can help soften your cervix? We also have raspberry leaf tea for those of you who have only a matter of weeks to go!

We sell lots of baby stuff: biodegradable nappies, nappy liners (for those of you who want to do washables), biodegradable nappy bags, baby wipes, lovely baby nappy creams and nipple cream coming soon (for those breast feeding) and organic formula mixes for bottle feeding.

If you pre-order there is 15% off when ordering a case of anything. I know we have saved money this way for our nappies and other bits. Buy in bulk and save yourself the drama of running out of nappies.

You can also find an Ella’s Kitchen recycling point in store. so you can safely know that your used pouches are not negatively impacting the environment.

We have mother’s day chocolates, cards and lots of lovely cruelty-free body care items. Encourage the mum in your life to stop looking after everyone else and pamper herself for a change!
