Momzelle came to life when a new mom was looking for something to wear while feeding her baby. Christine felt there must be more options then tugging at layers or exposing her belly. She crafted her own simple nursing top and was overwhelmed by the response of her midwife and mom friends! They all wanted one too.
She quickly recruited her entrepreneurial-spirited brother, Vincent, and together they started Momzelle with one mission in mind: to help other women feel comfortable and confident breastfeeding in public. While Momzelle is growing, Vincent gets married and begins a family of his own. Breastfeeding has an even bigger role in this man’s life! His wife, Sara, nurses their two children while joining the Momzelle team as social media/community manager.
Vincent and Sara are now running Momzelle and continue each day working with the mission of offering you the best possible nursing wear on the planet!
Your response has been amazing. Many of you have more than five Momzelle nursing tops in your wardrobe and we feel blessed that so many moms love Momzelle nursing wear.
Being comfortable and confident breastfeeding anywhere is how we hope all women feel. As we all know, when mommy's happy, baby's happy too!
- Sara, mom and co-owner of Momzelle
