I am so glad you’re here; my name is Sophia and I am the founder of The Mum Marketplace. I'm all about manifesting, lifting other women up, and mothering your own way. Because when we mother our own way, we mother our best way.
As a mum of two little girls, I know that when shopping for a growing family, the list is endless and time is, well, non-existent. I struggled to find the things I needed online as a first-time mum. I had a strong idea of what I wanted, but it wasn’t always easy to find. I purchased items through trial and error, not really knowing which brands and products would be right for me and my family.
I found many shopping sites overwhelming or underwhelming. I didn’t always relate to the ‘stereotypical’ mum portrayed on their pages. I found it hard to find things that made me feel like me, when all I wanted to do was find myself following the birth of my daughters. Most of the major brands available were all about the baby’s needs. But what about the needs of mothers?
And it didn’t stop there. When it came to baby toys, the plastic primary colour overwhelm was real. Friends would joke that I only would only search for muted, natural wooden toys. And neutrals for clothes. I just didn’t understand why there were no other options available, other than generic pink or blue.
So, I decided to do something about it. I created The Mum Marketplace…
Developing The Mum Marketplace has been a magical journey and a dream come true. I can’t wait to give you Mama’s the opportunity to browse through some truly beautiful brands. I am so excited for you to connect with some of the most knowledgeable experts, and a community of other amazing mums, just like you.
