About Us

We're so glad you're here!  If you're new around here, my name is Lindsay and I am the person behind Mother and Nature.  I'm the one sewing, packaging, shipping, posting on social media, and all the other good stuff that comes with running a small business that I'm passionate about.

Started in Burlington, ON, and now based in Barrie, ON, Mother and Nature originally began after our first child was born. I used sewing as a way to cope with the physical and mental challenges I was experiencing, including severe postpartum depression and anxiety. I began to create baby gifts for family and friends, and eventually, I signed up for events, expanded my product line, created partnerships with local businesses and set my sights on making life easier for new parents with functional and cute baby goods.

In addition to the learning, growth, and purpose that comes with owning and operating a small business, my reason why is my children. I want them to have a safe and happy world to grow up in, and that starts with taking better care of Mother Earth. In 2020, we committed to planting one tree for every purchase.

To date, we've saved an estimated 250,000+ (and counting!) single-use items from landfills including disposable diapers, wet wipes, disposable menstrual products, cotton rounds, disposable breast pads, and more! Thank you for being part of our journey. If we work together, we can do great, kind things for our planet. There is no planet B.
