Send an Irish Mum Abroad a Piece of Home this International Mother’s Day with a Box from Mama Moments now with FREE International Shipping
They say it takes a village, but for many of the diaspora, whose frequent or annual trips home were a core part of their lives,the pandemic has meant their journey through pregnancy and into motherhood has been in isolation. Without the added support systems of home, self-care is even more vital for mums well being and a powerful form of self preservation.
The feeling of home is not just physical but a complete sensory experience, the smell of your mother’s perfume or the taste of your grandmother’s cooking are indelible and a powerful reminder of where you came from. Although never the same as being there in person, sensory reminders may provide the next best thing while travel is not an option.

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.
