COVID-19 operations update

Hello everyone! We are working to sort out what the closure of non-essential businesses in Ontario means to ecomum and our etsy shop.
We  supply midwifery slings to clients around the world, and do all facets of manufacturing and shipping in our secure home facility. We have enough thread, hardware and beautiful fabric options already in stock to keep working for a while!
We would consider midwifery slings to be an essential medical supply, and just today received orders from midwives who have decided to order extra slings so they can protect their clients while still providing the essential service of birth support and after care.
Scientific reports suggest that the virus will only remain stable or active on fabric or paper surfaces from 24 – 48 hours. Plastics and metal surfaces allow the virus to stay viable longer. We have in the past few weeks transferred all our shipping materials to paper and fabric, apart from packing tape — we will now switch from a plastic tape to a paper source.
We suggest leaving your packages in a secure place for 24 – 48 hours before bringing them into your home (ie, a mailbox) to ensure no contamination from transit comes into your home with your product.

Keep well,

and thanks for your support.

Spring is here….

Spring is the season of kittens, and it seems human babies too!  Midwifery weigh slings are flying out into the world as fast as we can get them sewn up.  It’s such an honour to be so close to the first moments of new little humans arriving into the world.

So, try not to be discouraged by the unruly weather — the snow, the sleet and the chills that jump out from behind trees at us after a tee shirt & shorts day in the yard.  The sun is here; we just need to be patient.

And in the meantime, we’ll just keep calm, and sewn on.
