Supporting and empowering women is one of Gugu Guru’s core values. As a mom-founded brand ourselves (Shoutout to Monica!), we are always looking to build up other women in the workplace. Moms are incredible. We are strong, determined, and excellent at getting stuff done. As we enter Women’s History Month, we want to rally our support behind some wonderful mom-founded brands.
Throughout the month, we will be supporting Birth Queen, an organization (founded by mom, Rachel Nicks) working to educate, support, and empower black women & families throughout the birth experience. Their doulas, lactation consultants, and midwives are extensively trained to help combat the maternal health crisis targeting black mothers. Please support Birth Queen by shopping with Gugu Guru and rounding up your purchase at check out.
