About Mama Box
What is Mama Box?
We’re so glad you asked! Mama Box is a monthly subscription service that curates fun, healthy products for pregnancy and expecting mama’s. Our subscription can be started at anytime during pregnancy. Products are specific to pregnancy and once Mama hits her due date the subscription effectively ends. The subscription is a discovery service tailored to mama’s due date and we include a variety of different products. Anything from pregnancy safe skincare, pregnancy specific food/drink items to helpful and useful pregnancy items you may not have thought of… and don’t forget, you’ll be amazed at the fun products you will discover and absolutely love! Each Mama Box subscription contains 5-7 sample and full size products, with a few fun extras sprinkled in.
The subscription is a discovery service…we can’t spoil the surprise and tell you what’s in them before you receive it!
We also have an online store with full size products that can be found in our subscriptions.
Can I send a Mama Box as a gift to someone else?
Of course! You can gift any subscription or shop items to the lucky person of your choice. Gift messages are available as well.
Do you have giftcards available?
At this point in time, we don’t offer gift cards but it is something we will be looking at in the future.
How long does it take for my order to be processed?
Shop items and first time subscribers will typically be processed within 1-2 Business Days. You have the ability to view the status of your order in your account. Subscription renewal orders are processed on the 1st of the month and shipped around the 15th of the month. Check out our Shipping tab below for more details on this.
Why do I need “safe” products during pregnancy?
There are literally 10,000 chemicals you come into contact with every day, and some have the potential to harm you and your little bump. Anything you eat, drink, breathe or put on your skin can make it to your growing little baby. There is no way to avoid all chemicals. We are taking a rational approach to help you avoid harsh and questionable chemicals where there is cause for concern. Some of these chemicals have the potential of causing birth defects, and there hasn’t been enough research on some as to what effect they can potentially have. Why not protect yourself and your little one! That’s why we’re here.
Have you seen patches used for different medications? It’s a constant reminder that your skin is a carrier, not a barrier. Topical absorption happens, and these chemicals can make their way into your bloodstream pretty easily. Once chemicals enter the mama’s bloodstream, they can easily cross the placenta and make their way to the baby’s bloodstream. Some of these chemicals can harm the baby and have the potential to cause birth defects.
Why aren’t all of your products organic?
The majority of the products we select are organic and natural. With that being said, there are quite a few people that try to transition to organic products, and quickly lose hope. The main reason being the effectiveness of some organic products just aren’t up to par with normal, everyday products on the market. We’ve chosen products that are safe without compromising the quality of what they are intended to do. We are taking a rational approach to help you avoid harsh and questionable chemicals where there is cause for concern. We choose organic and natural when we can!
Do I need to sign up for a subscription to order your boxes?
At this point in time we only have subscription boxes available. We will be branching out into Corporate boxes and Gift Boxes specific for baby showers etc.
Can I purchase products in the boxes separately on your site?
Heck yes! All of the products we carry in our boxes are available in our online store, along with many more great products!
When will I be billed for the monthly recurring membership?
When you place your order for a monthly subscription, you will be billed for your first Mama Box immediately. Our renewal billing period starts the 1st of the current month, unless cancelled according to our cancellation policy. Automatic renewals will be billed at full price around the 15th of each month until the selected subscription ends.
