Mama Maya makes organic cotton muslin baby swaddle blankets, which are ethically made, generously sized, beautifully finished, soft and breathable.
Founder - Robyn Jones, created this product that is incredibly useful, of long lasting quality and also makes a tangible contribution to helping reduce the rate of mother and baby morbidity and mortality.
Mama Maya is a brand with a purpose, from the GOTS-certified organic cotton used, fair trade manufacturer and sustainable printing, reusable bag, recyclable labels and post packaging.
Sadly, every two minutes one woman dies of complications related to pregnancy or childbirth - 99% of these deaths occur in developing countries.
For every Mama Maya Baby Blanket purchased, Mama Maya provides funding for at least one clean birthing kit and caregiver training, to ensure that at least one other mama worldwide will be able to access a cleaner and safer birth.
The clean birthing kits contains 6 basic items: plastic sheet, gauze squares, sterile scalpel blade, soap, gloves and string.
The Birthing Kit Foundation (Australia) also funds training programs to educate birth attendants and community health workers. This complements kit distribution, empowers through education, and promotes sustainable change.
