Our Why

Aloha! In our recent history there has been a way that babies have been put to bed. The shape, size and colors may change, but the basic concept remains the same; hard, flat, isolated.

Is it possible that there is a better way?

Is it possible that this better way may even nurture & soothe babies?

Is it possible that this nurturing & soothing could result in babies that feel safer, & more secure?

Is it possible that a safe, secure baby would become more self-confident & self empowered?

Is it possible that a self confident & self-empowered baby would become a more peaceful & creative being on our planet?

Yes it is!
SO: What if hard becomes soft? What if flat becomes gently curved? What if isolated becomes lovingly cradled? What if bed becomes baby hammock?

For this and many more reasons we create baby hammocks. Baby hammocks made by Mothers for Mothers with one vision, one purpose: To create Peace on Earth one baby at a time!

Special Delivery Baby Hammocks: The Womb to World transition that nurtures.

One Mother to Another

Special Delivery Baby Hammocks are made by mothers for mothers.

We have a very personal investment in our baby hammocks, for our babies sleep in them! The mothers in our sewing circle get a great deal of satisfaction out of making these hammocks. They feel they are making a difference in the world by contributing a quality product toward something they really believe in: helping to nurture babies. Each hammock is an individual creation, created from start to finish by one seamstress thereby giving her the satisfaction of creation and completion. Just take a look at our shopping pages and you’ll see the wide variety of material patterns and colors which our mothers have chosen for hammock creation.

Designed by practicing Physician and Midwife, Patricia Mather, the Special Delivery Baby Hammock provides a relaxed and soothing environment for newborns in their first few months of life. Combining her experience as a physician, mother and seamstress, Patricia set out to design the most economical and functional, simple yet elegant baby hammock on the market.

Cradled in the soft contours of the Special Delivery Baby Hammock, babies naturally relax and experience calm, restful sleep. When they stir, their own movements set the spring recoil, swaying motion into action, allowing babies to self-soothe and put themselves back to sleep. Rather than laying against the flat, stationary surface of a typical crib or bassinet,they experience the nurturing motion and curvature so familiar from their recent nine months in the womb.

As they grow, the Special Delivery Baby Hammock continues to provide peaceful rest and soothing comfort for your baby, easing colic and acid reflux. While pediatricians agree that sleeping on the back is the safest position for babies, reducing the incidence of SIDS, it may also result in acid reflux unless the head is slightly elevated. The Special Delivery Baby Hammock fixes this problem was by keeping baby’s head slightly elevated naturally, without the use of pillows or other props.

The Special Delivery Baby Hammock is highly portable. It can go from room to room, or even out of the house with you. With the easy clip and chain extension, your hammock will move with you, allowing your baby to always have the same safe and nurturing bed.

Each Special Delivery Baby Hammock is handcrafted by one of our seamstress mothers—a work of love and creative attention. From the fabric selection through the sewing and hanging, each hammock is an individual creation from our seamstress mothers that will one day be cradling a very special baby!

Our Stories
Dr. Patricia Mather
Aloha! As the mother of 7, Grandmother of 11, Naturopathic physician and Midwife for 35 years, you can clearly understand my deep interest and love of babies! I was inspired by the concept of baby hammocks while attending a birth here on the Big Island, and immediately set to work to create one for my two grandchildren that were due to arrive within just weeks. Once completed, I simply knew that this was an integral part of bringing a child into this world. Truly a natural Womb to World transition, holds and soothes these little ones as they navigated this new environment.

Birthing the concept of having these hammocks be made by mothers, for mothers was a natural evolution in my interest in supporting mothers to stay at home with their children and make a fair wage, doing something they love.

I continue to personally create many of our hammocks myself, as I literally the sew Love into each one! EnJOY! Dr. Patricia

Aloha! I am the third eldest daughter of seven children, raised here in Hawaii since the age of two by my Mother, Dr. Patricia Mather and my Father, Dr. Jonathan Mather. I am still blessed to call my Home the Big Island of Hawaii, having lived here now for over 35 years. I have two beautiful children, Jade, age11 and Rise, age 7. We live in a small town on the Hamakua Coast, known for its green pastures and amazing forests.

I feel so fortunate to be a part of the “One Mother to Another” sewing circle, putting these amazing Hammock Beds in the hands of Mothers everywhere! These are truly the best choice for every baby’s safety, comfort and development. My Mother, Patricia, has been a passionate Midwife and Naturopath for many years, practicing mainly in Family care. These Hammock Beds were created out of her inspiration to give ALL babies the very best, From Womb to World. I am excited to see what the future holds for us and for Mothers worldwide.

Peace and Blessings, Sonora

Aloha! I live on the Big Island of Hawai’i, where I was born and raised. I was home schooled and spent most afternoons barefoot exploring the Hamakua countryside with my younger brothers and friends, playing until our feet were black from the knees down and our mothers called us home as the sun set.

My explorations of this beautiful island continue to this day. As a mother I am blessed to share this with my daughters Isabella, age 7 and Lucia, age 3 weeks. They remind me to see with new eyes every day. My baby hammock made not only Bella’s transition into the world smooth, but also my transition into motherhood! A happy baby equals a happy mama!

And now Lucia is enjoying her hammock immensely, while Bella spends countless hours in her Toddler hammock; reading, singing, laughing and just chillin’.

I’m so thankful to be able to share this gift with others.

Mahalo nui loa, Mela
