A message to our Mamas
It's been an unsettling few weeks as the impact of COVID-19 seems to escalate each day. It can be particularly challenging if you're expecting or have children with all those questions and doubts and anxious thoughts running through your mind.
During this uncertain time, we wanted to assure you that every precaution is being taken to ensure your orders are processed with the utmost safety and cleanliness - orders are packed with clean hands and lots of love!
We are a small family owned business of 15 years and have had no recent overseas travel (except for the Spirit of Tasmania over Christmas) and are fortunate to live locally and close to our office. We have adhered to increased hygiene standards and are taking all necessary steps to follow the World Health Organisation and government guidelines, and working remotely where possible.
We remain fully committed to supporting our customers, team members, our many brands and will be maintaining our online operations as normal. If we can assist or you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
For mamas in need at this worrying time, our past season stock is donated to the wonderful Olivia's Place each year.
Stay safe everyone x
