Our Story

From one mama to another.

Hi, I’m Tanya! Mum of 3, Practising Midwife & Founder of Kinhood.

During lockdown, like so many others, I turned to online shopping to find a gift for my pregnant friend.

While there were plenty of choices out there for mama and baby, I discovered a notable lack of trimester-specific pregnancy options on the Irish market.

And not only that, but the options that were available didn’t cater to the changing needs experienced during the pregnancy journey.

I felt it was time we shifted away from a “one-size-fits-all” approach to pregnancy gifting.

 In fact, it was long overdue.

...and so, Kinhood was born.


Self-Care Tailored To Each Trimester.

At Kinhood, we recognise that the pregnancy journey isn’t linear. 

Symptoms, emotions, needs… they all change significantly throughout each trimester.

As a mama-to-be, it’s the little things that can make all the difference during this challenging journey, but as a partner, best friend or family member – it’s not always easy to know what to choose.

What will she like? What on earth does she need? And most importantly, what’s safe?

We’ve taken the guesswork and time-consuming research out of pregnancy gifting – by delivering a curated edit of both indulgent and practical items that support and pamper mamas-to-be.

Using my Midwifery background, each care package is carefully curated to include pregnancy-safe products handpicked to match each trimester’s unique needs.
