Mother’s Day is a significant holiday for Coconu. Our company was founded when a mother and her husband were searching for a certified organic lubricant after the birth of their second son. We are a team of working moms dedicated to bringing women the absolute highest quality, healthy and clean personal care products. We think about mothers every day as we develop and sell products making it easier for women to continue connecting with their partners as they juggle the demands of children, work and long task-filled days. We also honor our founders’ late mother, Kathy Warnick, with every purchase you make by donating a portion of all sales to OCRA (the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance).
In keeping with our commitment to help mothers to increase their capacity for connection, we have curated a list of our favorite female-founded and mother-led companies for this Mother’s Day. We are inspired by these women every day. In addition to offering great products for mothers, these companies have their own give-back campaigns and/or maintain sustainable and ethical business practices.
Best Gifts for New Moms
Every new mother needs an amazing diaper bag! Ryla Pack was created by a mother who wanted a simple, incredibly practical bag with enough storage options to never need another bag again. Ryla Pack have perfected the stylish diaper back pack, and we absolutely love that we can still use ours well past diaper bag stage.

Proceed to their website with caution! From the softest and cutest newborn sacks, to toddler rompers and adult matches, this is one of the coolest companies run by a mom who began selling her children’s old clothes while her husband was in law school. We think all new moms should be introduced to the brand to make the most of their drops. Their limited releasing often sell out in minutes and sometimes seconds!
As new moms our bodies go through many changes, and this can be the first time you have thought about a personal lubricant. From our long lasting and extremely moisturizing oil based, to our quick absorbing water based and new products launching later this year, we have something that will work for every new mother.
