We're Mothers Too
Before establishing Mothers Choice Products in 1993, Sandra was a Registered Nurse specializing in Maternal Child Health. After years of helping mothers and their new babies and with the birth of her third child, Sandra realized that there were some essential products that all mothers relied upon. The problem was either finding the product or finding a quality product amongst the masses of useless hype on the market.
Using her personal and professional experience, she set out to establish a company that would bring forward only the best products that really served the needs of moms, dads and babies at reasonable prices.
Mothers Choice is Born!
Sandra started the company as a home-based business representing one product: Ameda breast pumps and accessories. Why a breast pump? Although some consider it a convenience product, it is an essential product for so many mothers who struggle with breastfeeding. When you need one, you need a good one and there are many models on the market.
Sandra had confidence in the Ameda brand from her years of experience working with new mothers in a hospital environment but it was difficult to find the pump in retail stores. Mothers Choice brought the Ameda breast pump to larger prominence in the Canadian marketplace and then added the service and expertise of Certified Breastfeeding Counselors to answer any consumer questions.
The Company Starts to Grow Up
The Ameda product line was so well received that Mothers Choice began expanding its line of products. New additions included other parenting essentials as cream for sore, painful and cracked nipples, prenatal support garments and other complimentary products.
Right from the company's start, Mothers Choice built its reputation on the mission statement: Provide superior products to enhance the parenting experience. This remains our mantra today and guides our business throughout every level of its operation.
Where We Are Today
Mothers Choice has grown from being a home-based company into a well-stocked warehouse and office location in Richmond, BC with territory managers located all across Canada. We have become a major supplier to independent retailers and large chains such as London Drugs, Save on Foods, Shoppers Drug Mart, Lawtons and Jean Coutu. But perhaps most importantly, Mothers Choice has carefully built trust and confidence with retailers, the medical community and Canadian mothers as the one-stop source for the products moms trust, want and need.
