Project Description

 

" I spent my entire pregnancy preparing for my baby to arrive but it never occurred to me to prepare for postpartum. "

Marsha Stephanson, Founder Cater to Mom 

Cater to Mom is a monthly postpartum care subscription box that caters to the needs of moms postpartum and beyond. Our mission is to reassure moms that they are not alone in their postpartum journey.  Cater to Mom is here to help for however long you need us. 

As moms, we spend our entire pregnancy preparing for the baby to arrive. It never occurs to us to prepare for postpartum care.  Recovering from labor is not easy. The postpartum body has been through a lot of changes, transformations, and trauma. Mothers need time to heal and it’s important we address those needs within the first forty days.

 

Women of every culture, age, income level, and race can develop perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Symptoms can appear at any time during pregnancy and within the first 12 months after childbirth. It is often one of the most challenging times for new moms, especially if it is the first baby. Strangely, we are given all the tools and resources to take care of our babies but very little to nothing at all to better prepare us for postpartum. Where is the book about What to Expect Postpartum?

Cater to Mom is filling this need by raising awareness of perinatal mental health. We provide monthly postpartum boxes curated to support moms postpartum but most importantly, we are ensuring postpartum resources are included in our boxes so Mom is better prepared for her postpartum journey. We strongly believe every mother needs regular, ongoing information; mental, emotional, and spiritual support; proper rest and nourishment; and, most of all, compassionate companionship and encouragement.

 

Why are we seeking funding?

We launched November 2018 and our first boxes shipped December 2018. Over a year and a half, we have grown significantly. Our boxes have reached over 45 U.S. states, (Vermont, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Montana, and Hawaii we are waiting for you) Canada, and Japan.  During COVID-19 Cater to Mom, our orders increased and we officially became essential. We have been working round the clock to ship boxes to moms, providing them with postpartum care recovery essentials, self-care items, as well as including virtual postpartum care resources that are now available to them.  Along with our monthly subscription boxes, we are shipping our one-time gift boxes which would include the Cater Postpartum Recovery Box, Love Always (Pregnancy/Miscarriage), and Cater to Dad box and averaging 150-200 boxes a month and the rate is steadily increasing. We are anticipating a significant increase for Fall/Early Spring as our "Quarantine Babies" start making their debut.  We want to continue to remain essential and support our moms but we need to be able to keep up with the supply and demand.

We Need Your Help

We will use the funds backed by this campaign to purchase inventory, equipment/office supplies, and invest in marketing/branding for our business to continue to grow.  Having additional inventory and boxes will allow us to process and ship our boxes out quicker and decrease the waiting time to receive our inventory from our vendors. 

Postpartum is real and each day is different than the next one. During this time of uncertainty, we want moms to feel loved and supported. It truly takes a village to raise a child and we want moms to know they are not alone. We truly appreciate your support by investing in Cater to Mom and helping us continue to meet the needs of our moms who need some extra TLC. 

 

Our Founder

 

 

Marsha Stephanson is the Founder/CEO of Cater To Mom and a modern-day mom of two children. She is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, a wife with a busy household to maintain, a degreed HR professional and an entrepreneur. Marsha celebrates motherhood, and her ordeal and recovery. Her deep-rooted desire to help moms by sharing her own journey became a passion. The passion became a burden to help others. Marsha’s inspiration to start Cater To Mom was born out of the reality that no mom should feel the hopelessness and helplessness that interfere with the miracle and joys of giving birth and the expectations of a successful life for her newborn. She immediately began her journey, innovating the process of raising awareness of postpartum depression and recovery resources, accentuating the benefits and sacrifices of breastfeeding, and most of all, promoting self-care through her beautifully designed monthly care packages and informational workshops and events. 

Marsha adamantly believes that every mother needs regular, on-going information; mental, emotional, and spiritual support; proper rest and nourishment, and, most of all, compassionate companionship and encouragement. When mom’s needs are met, the whole family benefits.
