Be pampered with Bumpy Box
Be pampered with Bumpy Box
Women love challenges and making an effort for something they care about!
Alongside her passion to start her own business, Noha chose an unfamiliar line of business (Subscription) so the challenge is doubled, and she decided to make an effective and specific brand, then she chose pregnant women because she knows how pregnant women in Egypt are never pampered enough through that emotional period, so she decided to support and pamper women by herself!
Today we meet Noha, the founder of Bumpy Box, to talk with us about her own career steps and how she got inspired to choose this type of business.
First of all, tell us where did you get the idea for Bumpy Box?
During the period of the corona pandemic, I was thinking of starting my own business, I wanted to help and pamper women, then I started to think that I should personalize it to be more effective so I chose pregnant.
I was thinking that in Egypt mothers are not pampered enough like the women in other countries, also we have a false idea about pregnancy like if you're pregnant you're treated as ill, however, it's a very special stage in each woman's life and she should enjoy each and every phase of it as well, to be prepared for the symptoms that she may have and feel supported from other people around her.
What were the obstacles that faced you when you started your own business?
The business line of subscription isn't famous in Egypt compared to other countries, so It was difficult to deliver the idea itself to our clients and also to make partnerships with other companies and services to pamper our mums to be.
Who's the biggest supporter in your business journey?
My mum and my husband.
How do you balance your business with your personal life?
I'm trying to be organized as much as I can and to set a schedule, but for sure it doesn’t work all the time, especially in the first quarter.
What's the most valuable advice that you can give a woman who's planning to start her own business?
Good & deep search is the key and consistency is the only way to achieve your dream.
Tell us more about the Bumpy box, how does it work? And what should Mum expect from the box?
Bumpy box is the first pregnancy subscription box.
When you find out that you're pregnant just send us a message, it's our turn to pamper and prepare you with a new box for each trimester.
You can subscribe for 1, 2,3, or even 4 boxes
One for each trimester and the fourth one for the postpartum period.
Each box consists of ( 5 to 8 items ) also you may find discounts vouchers from our partners with services and products that are important for Mums.
We customize each box according to the needs of women in this trimester.
For example, in the first trimester, you will find healthy snacks to help you get over nausea.
In the second trimester, you will find products to help your muscles relax.
In the third trimester, we concentrate more on things that will help and pamper you before and within the delivery period
In the fourth trimester, we customize it according to the delivery way ( natural or c-section ) and the feeding ( breastfeeding or formula )
Also, because I'm a skincare addict, our mums will find an item or two inside each box just for their beauty.
All the skincare products are made from natural ingredients and are 100% safe for pregnancy.
As a mum-to-be, you should expect pampering and surprises with each box.
Tell us about the closest box you made to your heart.
Each box is arranged as if it's a personal gift to one of my friends ... As I know what mama-to-be faces every day so I'm trying to deliver my love and support to each one of them through the box.
How do you support other women with your business?
Most of our products are made by other women to support women's local businesses. Also whenever any business owner knows that this product will be delivered to pregnant women she does her best to make sure they receive premium quality.
How can an expecting mum pamper herself during pregnancy?

Eat well and don't forget your vitamins ( yes your health affects your mood )

Are there any plans to expand your business to include other aspects of women's lives than pregnancy? To make boxes for other occasions?
Sure, now we have a new mama box for the postpartum period we customize it according to the delivery type and the baby feeding type to make sure that you will get the right products for this period. Also, we're planning to start different kinds of subscription boxes, and also soon I will start courses to help other women start their subscription box businesses.
