Welcome to Mothering By Nature!

We are a one of a kind natural baby boutique and resource center located in beautiful downtown Valparaiso, Indiana! We proudly offer products, classes, and referrals that encourage a holistic lifestyle for your growing family.

At Mothering By Nature, you will find a good variety of cloth diapers, baby wearing products, non-toxic toys, natural diaper creams, salves, bath/body and sunscreens. We have a large selection of hazelwood and certified Baltic amber necklaces and bracelets in all sizes. Herbal breastfeeding supplements and organic teas are available, along with a variety of herbal and homeopathic wellness remedies, essential oils, whole food vitamins, and re-usable lunch items for the entire family. Mothering By Nature cares about where our products come from, how they are made, and if the items are safe and chemical free. We have a strong interest in eco-friendly, non-toxic, and organic items and love to support fair wage companies who are making a difference in our world. We have done all the research for you!

We think shopping locally is important! For those purchasing a baby carrier from us, we will help you try it on, get you properly fitted, and explain all the features. We also offer a lifetime of help with cloth diapers that are purchased from us. These are just a few of the perks of supporting our local small business!

Mothering By Nature offers various educational classes and events throughout the year. Our classes are kept small and focus on a healthy pregnancy, gentle birth experiences, birth planning, breastfeeding, bonding, and newborn care. A few times a year, we host an event giving parents the opportunity meet the local doulas and other birth professionals. A cloth diaper consignment sale is held yearly.

We have several connections to respectful and natural minded professionals in the NW Indiana area. Come visit us anytime if you are in need of a local referral for a medical professional, chiropractor, midwife, doula, photographer, support group, or anything else related to what we are centered around!

Mothering By Nature wants you to feel at home when you come to visit us! You are welcome to sit and feed your baby, use our diaper changing area, and weigh your little one on our baby scale, all while your children play in an area created just for them!
