About

Prepmum

Prepmum stands for ‘Preparing Mums’ and was born following a conversation with a friend, who discovered my immense interest in providing Mums-to-be with the support they needed during pregnancy.

Prepmum supports expectant mothers, primarily from their second trimester till birth, by providing honest, professional and excellent customer service to all the mothers we work with as we understand as exciting and unique as pregnancy and motherhood is, it can also be quite daunting.

Our primary focus is to equip Mums-to-be with pregnancy and birth essentials, being fully engaged throughout the process, and we achieve this through the services we offer:

  • Bra fitting (Maternity & Nursing)
  • Product recommendations and demonstrations
  • Baby shopping (All baby products are delivered at or around 36 weeks of pregnancy to reduce challenges with storage)
  • In-house vendors who specialise in Nursery Décor
  • Baby Shower assistance and on the day co-ordination
  • Maternity styling and Photoshoots
  • Hospital Bag
  • Private midwives
  • Post pregnancy Support

About Me

I was born in Nigeria, raised in Ireland and moved to London in 2010. I worked in the children’s department at Next retailer before becoming a Senior Adviser at Mothercare, a store that caters to expectant mothers providing a wide range of baby, toddler and children’s products. Working for Mothercare stirred my passion for babies and mothers and since then, I have gained valuable expertise in this field from pushchairs, to bedding; bathing and feeding, to maternity wear.

Having attending numerous baby shows over the years, I have acquired vast knowledge of baby products and brands and liaised with registered midwives, experienced professionals, suppliers. I have also had the privilege of consulting with many expectant mothers where I have witnessed first-hand the benefits of fundamental care tailored to each and every individual.
