The story of Mama Body Tea…
The idea of Mama Body Tea was born in 2012 when founder and co-director Jessica Spencer gave birth to her beautiful baby girl Ruby. Jess was searching for a natural and chemical free way to settle Ruby from the symptoms of colic and wind. With the help of Naturopath Anne Cousins the pair developed the Baby Bliss tea that is available today. This was a personal choice to avoid using chemical based products to soothe and settle her baby Ruby.
When Ruby was around 4 months old her need for milk outweighed the amount Jess could produce. So, following the same mantra that led Jess to Baby Bliss tea, she turned to Anne again and the two came up with a blend that boosted Jess’ milk supply dramatically. This was a light bulb moment for Jess as she known so many other women in her mother's group and girl friends were going through similar experiences too. Colicky and unsettled babies, breast milk supply worries and so on...
When Jess became pregnant with her second child Sunny she studied other medicinal herbs and their properties that would assist with all stages of her pregnancy. With the help of co-director and best friend Jessica O’Brien and in collaboration with in house Naturopath Anne Cousins, the girls built Mama Body Tea with the mission to support all mama's-to-be and new mama's with nourishing, chemical free natural organic blends to assist with all stages of their pregnancy journey and beyond.
Jess O’Brien was an natural inclusion in the company as she too was a Mama of two beautiful boys, Archie and Oscar and had shared the same tea blends as Jess with both of her gorgeous boys. Motivated and sharing the belief in their products the pair have built the company into what it is today which provides the highest quality organic herbal teas to Mamas all over the world.
Here is a little bit about Naturopath & Herbalist Anne Cousins.
"My experience is herbal teas can help with a very wide range of physical and emotional complaints. A properly blended herbal tea can calm the digestion, improve your nervous system, and now, with Mama Body Tea you have a range of organic and therapeutically formulated herbal tea blends for mums and bubs. Specific blends to rejuvenate and strengthen your body during pregnancy and post childbirth, to assist you during breastfeeding, and with a beautiful blend to help bubs when upsets occur. As a naturopath who’s worked with Mama Body Tea assisting in the selection and blending of the teas, I can wholeheartedly recommend this range of nourishing and delicious herbal teas.
