Mama Moments – Time to Exhale
Be it a Friend, Sister or Daughter, Show Mums at Every Stage Just How Much They Matter This Mother’s Day with Mama Moments
Many mums will agree that being a mother redefines ‘Full-Time Job’, and the last 12 months has seen us wearing more hats than ever before. Up and down the country women are feeding, clothing, schooling, entertaining and comforting the next generation all while juggling housework, holding down full time jobs and running businesses, all under one roof.
“Add on to that, caring for elderly or vulnerable relatives, the removal of normal support systems and childcare, and the unpredictable Irish winter weather – it’s a lot! The pressure Irish mums are under is monumental and leaves very little time for them to look after their own needs – and they may not have had much time to begin with!” notes Mama Moments Founder Sarah Ryan.
Sarah knows only too well how easy it is to find your own needs falling off your priority list completely and the implications it can have on your Mental Health. Mama Moments subscription box service aims to encourage and empower women to take time to practice self care regularly, and to shift the perception that prioritising it is selfish, when in fact it can be a powerful form of self-preservation.
Delivered bi-monthly, each subscription box, priced at €44.95, is different from the last with 5-6 full sized products carefully selected to encourage self care. The majority of these are sourced from small, independent, female-led, local businesses so each box not only supports the recipient but also a whole network of mums running business from their kitchen tables! The subscription box is perfect for mums at any stage but if you are looking for a gift for an expectant or new mum one of Mama Moments on demand gift boxes, the ‘New Mama Box’, €50, can help you say ‘you are important too’ at a time when her focus may be purely on looking after baby’s needs.
Mother’s Day is about celebrating all the mums in your life and whether you choose one box or twelve, a subscription for Mama Moments is a thoughtful way to remind your sister, daughter or friend how much you care and celebrate everything they do for their families.
Subscription Boxes are priced at €44.95 per box and are Shipped Bi-Monthly, The New Mama Box at €50. All are Available from www.mamamoments.ie
Sarah Ryan created Mama Moments in 2018 to remind mothers that they are important too after her own experiences with post-natal depression and PTSD made her realise the importance of self-care in looking after your mental health. Sarah lives in Dublin with her husband and two children, and a combination of severe hyperemesis, breastfeeding issues, and the hospital being shut down the week she was due to give birth, combined together and developed into a cocktail of mental health struggles after the birth of her first child. Unfortunately, in Ireland maternal mental health issues go undetected all the time and it was not till her second pregnancy that she received a diagnosis and began the cathartic experience of speaking with a counsellor.
But one of the most important shifts for her came when she finally started dedicating time to self-care on a daily basis. The difference in how she felt mentally and emotionally were huge. And that’s what led her to found Mama Moments, to empower other mothers to prioritise self-care and look after themselves.
For her, to be a small part of helping mothers prioritise their self-care has been the most rewarding part closely followed by having the opportunity to support some amazing, independent businesses being run by mamas all over Ireland.
