Donna Mansell is the creator of The Baby Manual

Donna is the founding Director of MotherNurture and The Baby Manual, offering 16 years’ experience as a Registered Nurse/ Midwife and Lactation Consultant. She is passionate about helping women step into motherhood with calm and confidence. This passion inspired her decision to begin MotherNurture, making it the first of its kind in South Australia.

Donna understands the benefit of great support throughout pregnancy and the early weeks following birth. In 2007 Donna decided to use her experience, skills and passion to create MotherNurture and provide women in South Australia with a service that was otherwise unavailable to them. This positive step forward in midwifery services gives women more choice, support and information during their pregnancies and early parenting experience.

Donna, along with her loving husband Scott, is also the proud parent of two little boys, Oliver, 8 and Harrison, 6.

As a little girl, Donna always fantasised about having her own shop, so being able to offer quality products via her online store is just another part of her business that has her truly excited. It’s not quite the cash register and aisles she imagined but it’s a childhood dream fulfilled nonetheless.

Donna’s ultimate focus is to offer her best and in turn help others achieve their best in the wonderful journey of motherhood.
