Every baby born at Epworth receives its very own Welcome to the world box filled with gifts and the hope that it will become home to some of your precious first memories, like your cot card and ID bracelet.
Each Welcome to the world box is packed with love by Epworth volunteers and includes a Purebaby grow suit, exclusively designed for Epworth babies along with delicious Franjo’s Kitchen Tanker Topper Biscuits and Epworth milestone card pack.
We love seeing Epworth babies as they grow, so don’t forget to tag #EpworthBabies with your pics and keep your eyes out for seasonal box inclusions.
About our maternity partners:
Purebaby was born in 2002 when Melbourne mum, Mirabai Winford, struggled to find quality, organic baby products made with awareness and care.
Crafted with the softest certified organic cotton, your Welcome to the World Epworth baby growsuit is designed to let your newborn’s skin breathe naturally, without harsh chemicals or irritants.
Purebaby has been at the heart of our Welcome to the World boxes, lovingly curated for Epworth babies, since their launch in 2019.
Franjo’s Kitchen was created after mums Fran and Jo met while out for a walk with their babies through Melbourne’s suburbs back in 2014. The two mums bonded over their love of baked goods!
At the time, Fran was worried that her baby Phoebe wasn’t gaining enough weight, so she researched how she might produce more breast milk and discovered a recipe for lactation biscuits.
With Jo's naturopath knowledge, Jo and Fran joined forces to make a healthier version of the lactation biscuits and today Franjo’s Kitchen is an international brand, supporting nutrition from pregnancy to breastfeeding, toddlers and beyond.
