Who we are: At Mombox we're on a mission to make it easier to care for new moms. What started as a way to get quality labor and delivery recovery products to new moms, has evolved into a marketplace designed to make it effortless for loved ones and friends to take better care of the new mothers in their lives. Mombox makes it easier than ever to curate beautiful and personalized gift boxes that center the needs of the mother.
Why we exist: We exist for the gift giver who is looking for a unique and beautiful way to tell a new mom she too, in addition to the new baby, is being thought of and looked after. Our round-up of must-have products, in-depth research, thoughtful notecards, and beautiful packaging make Mombox the go-to destination for new-mom gift giving.
More than a marketplace: On the surface Mombox makes it easier for new moms to feel pampered and supported. But Mombox is rooted in the science of matrescence (the physical, physiological, and emotional shift that occurs in mothers after the birth or introduction of a child). Everything we do is centered around this science. The products we curate are tied to topics that align with the traditional timeline of matrescence. In each Mombox we offer the latest information and research, in a bite-sized booklet that offers insight and language around what a new mom may be experiencing. This allows new moms to feel seen, heard, related to, and empowered to speak up to their own care provider if something feels off.
We dream of a world where the nation's maternal mortality rate is no longer climbing, but rather falling -- where every new mother, regardless of region, race, or socioeconomic standing has equitable access to proper, ongoing, best-in-class, postnatal care and every time you send a a Mombox you're helping us get there. Stronger mothers means stronger communities, economies, and overall countries.

Like most first-time moms, I prepared everything for baby’s arrival and nothing for my own postpartum recovery. It wasn’t until I was heading home from the hospital after giving birth to my son that I realized I, too, needed recovery products for my own healing body.
My husband and I stopped at a department store and went to the pharmacy section looking for items that mimicked the cheap supplies the hospital had given me. The product selection was limited. I realized that better versions of these products could be found online but it was too late to research and order them. I needed them all at once.
I knew there had to be a better way to get postpartum care products to new moms. And like that, the idea for Mombox was born.
