Back in March 2020 when entering national lockdown we began to think about how we could reach out to more mamas. This was a time we were unable to meet in person. So we zoomed, private messaged and set up our text service, but we wanted to do more.
This is where our Hey Mama packages came into being. We wanted to find a gift, a treat for our Mamas that was just for them. A little reminder that we’re still here and that they’re not alone in how they’re feeling.
There grew our Hey Mama packages, these were built from the kindness of others. Some amazing Mamas fundraising for us and we were fortunate to receive funds from Tescos, East Riding Coronavirus Community fund and the National Lottery Emergency COVID-19 funding.
All of the packs include a mug or water bottle, chocolate, pampering products, notepad or journal, affirmation cards and messages of positivity.
To date we have given out over 75 Hey Mama packages to Mamas. These were from our peer support groups, given out through local groups and places like the baby banks, health visitors, perinatal mental health teams, NCT and midwives.
We have also opened up our nominations for the ‘Nominate a Mama’ packages.
If you know an amazing Mama and would like to put their name forward to receive a Hey Mama packages. Get in touch with their full name, address and why you’d like to nominate them.
We can’t wait to hear all about them!
