Below is our recent interview with Kate Westervelt, founder and CEO at Mombox:
Q: Could you provide our readers with an introduction to your company?
A: Founded in 2017 by Kate Westervelt, Mombox is on a mission to radically improve the postpartum experience for new moms. Mombox provides critical postnatal support through its stage-based subscription program—delivering world-class wellness products and personalized content to new moms at home throughout the first year of motherhood.
Mombox is committed to meeting the needs of new mothers across a full spectrum of postnatal support topics, including: postpartum hair loss, postnatal depletion, perinatal mood topics, sleep, intimacy, and energy.
Our relaunch introduces new, all-encompassing care for new moms across the entire first year of motherhood. Our postnatal wellness kits are curated with trusted, best-in-class products, and delivered directly to your doorstep monthly. Plus, hyper-personalized postnatal content is included to tell mom what to really expect at every stage of the postpartum journey. From fluctuating moods and identity shifts, to post-baby beauty, brain science, and beyond.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Mombox is now offering a subscription option that provides multiple months of care to new moms, starting at $69 a month.
The newest offering includes month-to-month and bundled subscription options and each subscription includes monthly boxes filled with 6-9 full-sized best-in-class beauty, fitness, and wellness products and research-backed information from experts in the matrescence field.
Gift subscriptions are available and allow new moms to customize their boxes based on the type of delivery they had — vaginal or cesarean.
We’ve also introduced the highly-anticipated breastfeeding support box aimed at helping mothers navigate the common difficulties associated with breastfeeding.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Each monthly Mombox has been carefully developed based on a science-backed, stage-based curriculum, and conveniently delivers world-class wellness products and personalized content directly to moms at home throughout the first year. Monthly Mombox kits are tailored to mom’s unique post-birth needs and feature best-in-class beauty, fitness, and wellness products including items from Gaiam, Medela, Motherlove, Premama and Rael Organics. Also included in each box is information from leading experts in the maternal wellness field to help new parents better understand what to really expect at every stage throughout year one.
A Mombox subscription includes an introductory Welcome Kit and monthly kits centered around postpartum topics including mood, beauty, intimacy, identity and sleep. In addition to the subscription offering, Mombox’s signature labor and delivery kits are still available, as well as the all-new, highly-anticipated breastfeeding support box.
Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: As an all-encompassing, singular destination that provides radically improved postnatal support for new moms, Mombox plans to introduce a full suite of services for new parents in the months ahead, including lactation support for moms. Stay tuned for more!
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Over 80% of our product curation comes from female or BiPOC founded companies.
We’re fully committed to caring for mothers across as many postpartum topics as possible, so that the next generation of mothers, and the generation after that, continue to expand conversation and resources that lead to happier and healthier mothers in a society that all too often shifts its focus away from the mother the moment the child arrives.
