New TLB sponsor Momzelle based in Montreal, Canada, offers their Mother’s Day wishes for Leakies in honor of the creator of the company’s dear friend. Christine, the mom behind Momzelle, shares how she came to start her company as well as her favorite Mother’s Day gift she has received to date.
TLB: What should TLB readers know about Momzelle?
Christine: Momzelle’s mission is to help mothers feel good about breastfeeeding in public. It is a brand of nursing clothing, including nursing tops and nursing dresses, available at select independant maternity and baby stores, as well as online on www.momzelle.com. All of our tops are both stylish and functional, designed with a nursing mother’s needs in mind. They are easy to use, feel great, and most importantly, they allow mothers to nurse anywhere without worrying about what part of their body is showing. This freedom is very empowering.
TLB: How did Momzelle come to be?
Christine: Momzelle came to be about five years ago, after the birth of my daughter Cécile. I had created a nursing top for myself and my midwife raved about how good it was. She said I must bring the product to market, as all moms needed it. A few months later, with the help of my brother Vincent, I started Momzelle. The tops we designed were a hit right away, receiving amazing reviews from mothers and the media. Starting Momzelle was one of the best things I ever did and it is very gratifiying to know that our work makes a difference in mothers’ lives, allowing them to feel good while breastfeeding in public.
TLB: What was your favorite mother’s day present to receive?
Christine: My favorite mother’s day present to receive was a little heart shaped candle holder, made by my daughter. It is ugly, but made with so much love that I can’t help being moved when I look at it. I take it out on every special occasions, which pleases both of us.
TLB: What do you wish for all mothers this mother’s day?
Christine: A friend of mine died of a cancer a year ago and had two little children of a very young age. This mother’s day, I wish to all mothers to be healthy and able to see their children grow.
