Founded in 1987 by Kathryn Higgins, Motherlove is the first herbal products company focused on pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and baby care. It was conceived of and grew around Kathryn’s kitchen table; as the products she made for her own pregnancy and birth became so popular that she was asked to make them for a local retailer. As demand for the products grew around the world, Motherlove grew exponentially but Kathryn never wavered from her dedication to premium quality natural and organic products, and the responsibility of being nature’s steward. Today, Motherlove products are still handmade with love in Colorado using Kathryn’s original recipes. In 2012, Motherlove took the story full circle with their acquisition of a 120-acre organic farm. There, they continue the legacy of growing organic herbs and educating families on the uses and value of medicinal plants and sustainable organic practices. Kathryn’s daughters now carry on her traditions and dedication to crafting only the finest, purest products, and using certified organic ingredients designed to nurture and soothe women on their all-important journey of nurturing life.
