Cozymumandme : Debbie and Liz would never have found each other if it hadn’t been for the Mush app and a local ‘bumps and babies’ coffee morning, despite living just a two-minute walk from each other, with daughters born just three days apart in the same hospital!
Since then we have navigated the trials and tribulations of being a new mother together, returned to work after maternity leave and embarked on a new venture by starting Cozymum and Me.
Having struggled to find comfy, cozymomandme and beautiful post-pregnancy wear, we often talked about the type of products we’d love to have been able to find: Cozymum and Me is our way of giving back, offering those products that eluded us, and supporting new Mums. Whether it is clothing, nursing accessories, baby products, reassurance or a sense of community as a new parent that you are seeking, we are honoured to have you along with us on this incredible journey.

I’m an international jetsetter and mum to Seren, living in Buckinghamshire with my rock star partner, Matt. Cozymumandme has given me the opportunity to be creative and bring to market products which I felt were either not available or not affordable when I had my own daughter. Becoming a mum has been such a departure for me from everything I thought I knew about myself. I am totally the opposite type of mother to the mother I thought I would be, and have learnt so much about myself. I am more decisive and more entrepreneurial than I ever was before she was born, but I also feel more vulnerable at the same time. It is so true that being a mum means discovering strengths you never knew you had whilst dealing with fears you never knew existed!
I’m a teacher and semi-pro tea drinker living in Buckinghamshire with my husband, Philip, and daughter, Imogen. Cozymum & Me has been a complete departure from my day job in the classroom, but so worthwhile: my hope is that with our ever growing range of products we can help new Mums to overcome the things that we found hard when our girls were little, and help to raise better awareness of, and to foster a more supportive culture for those who are finding adapting to motherhood tough. When I’m not at my computer or cleaning up the trail of destruction after toddler exploits around our home, I love to be outside in the fresh air and exploring: pottering in our garden, adventuring at the park with the little one, or out and about in the countryside a little further afield!
The Cozymum and Me Philosophy
Becoming a mother is tough. Our brand was born out of finding a new friend who was going through the same emotional rollercoaster of sleepless nights, worry and mummying minefelds. It all began in 2017 over a cup of tea whilst swapping notes on the things that got us through that particular day with our little ones, from biscuits to breastpumps!
Since then, we have laughed, cried and grown as mothers, and now it is our turn to help new Mums to discover their own maternal strength. It is there, even on the hardest of days: you just don’t realise it yet!
We are firm believers that mothers need clothing that makes them feel confident: that allows them to be themselves as they mother, not just another piece of functional baby kit. We want to provide nursing tops that make feeding cozier, easier and that enable you to parent in your own way. All of our products are made with the softest that we can find, that nurture and support. Post-pregnancy clothing should offer comfort when you are at your most vulnerable.
We don’t have a parenting philosophy: just one simple desire. We want to support Mums to follow their instincts – being kind to themselves as they embark on this journey of motherhood.
Our vision is a network of new mothers who feel able to trust their instincts without feeling judged: we want to support those with babies and young children to trust their instincts and to grow in confidence as a parent.Facebook
