When I first conceived the idea of starting a subscription-based pregnancy care kit, I was as nervous, anxious and excited as you are carrying your baby. So believe me when I say – we hear you. These nine-months are precious and we want to make it extra special for you, dear mommy-to-be. So don’t look at these boxes as curated supplies. Look at them through the prism of our love and care. Each item is vetted by experts and thoughtfully put together in a box that offers you an experience to cherish. Even with our baby boxes, there is a little something for the mumma to remind her of the strength, grace, and beauty she possesses. Fathers deserve a special mention. The silent pillar of support. Oftentimes a prepared and hands-on partner but sometimes as clueless as a pirate wearing two eye patches! Mumkin makes it possible for the wonderful men to contribute more effectively instead of orbiting around their sun – you. A big shout out to the husbands, brothers, fathers, partners and guy friends – you are fabulous.
Mumkin aims to make your smiles bigger and broader! We will continue to do so with our product range, services and by building a community that encourages, nurtures and helps new moms. We won’t tell you what to feel rather make you feel comfortable, confident and cared for.
And we will do it all together, because… it’s Mumkin.
