Ok, mamas. We feel you. Pregnancy and motherhood may be filled with hearts and flowers, unicorns and rainbows, but it’s not all a walk in the park. From aches and pains to tantrums and never having alone time again, every week can feel like a new adventure! (We know because we’ve been there too.) That’s why we’re so excited about our products for you and your entire family. Our products have been created in partnership with doctors and nutritionists to ensure we’re bringing you the highest quality and safest solutions and snacks for your family.
Healthy Mama® brand was founded by Rachel Katz-Galatt, who experienced a lot of frustration in trying to find safe over-the-counter products to treat her pregnancy-related ailments. Throughout her first pregnancy, Rachel sought safe solutions from her doctor, the Internet, nice ladies on the subway…all to no avail. Feeling particularly uncomfortable one night, Rachel and her husband David walked over to the pharmacy to see what they could find. The aisles were filled with pills and potions that were maybe (and maybe not) safe for pregnant women. In fact, one product was cited to cause pre-term labor. Rachel and David may not have found the right product that night, but they did stumble upon a big idea. It was there in that pharmacy that Healthy Mama® brand was conceived. Now, Healthy Mama wants to make finding safe pregnancy solutions and healthy snacks for your entire family an easier process for all mamas.
We at Healthy Mama are committed to making it simple for you to find the safest solutions and snacks for your entire family. From pregnancy-related needs to stage 1 cereals to organic snacks for toddlers and children. One of our big missions is working with retailers to create shelf space specifically for healthy options for families, so you busy mamas and mamas-to-be can find what you need without the scavenger hunt. The American Pregnancy Association is partnering with us to accomplish this mission. We’re determined to help because a healthy mama begins with a healthy family.
We care about our environment and strive to ensure we create the smallest footprint possible. By partnering with like-minded companies, we reduce the amount of waste, pollution and packaging possible. All our cartons are FSC certified, which means they came from responsible forestries.
Rachel delivered her oldest daughter, Mia, 16 weeks prematurely (at a mere 24 weeks). She spent five months in the hospital watching Mia fight for her life. Rachel, and the Healthy Mama brand are completely committed to helping other women to avoid this plight. We are partnering with organizations such as March of Dimes that share our mission of helping moms to sustain healthy, full-term pregnancies. In addition, Rachel sits on the March of Dimes New Jersey chapter Board of Directors and we support organizations that research issues threatening the health of babies, in hopes that someday, every “birthday” will be a healthy and happy one.
