What is Fourth Phase?
Fourth Phase is a one for one social impact company that offers afterbirth care boxes for expectant mothers. We currently feature two boxes--Belly Birth Box and Vaginal Birth Box--which are based on an expectant mother's birthing method.
Each Vaginal Birth Box is filled with Fourth Phase products and other brands from women-owned companies, with products that are Certified Organic, free from phthalates, non-toxic, cruelty-free, and sustainably sourced.
What does One for One mean?
We are a one for one company, which means every purchase of a Fourth Phase Box allows us to donate a similar afterbirth care box to new mamas in the U.S. experiencing homelessness and new moms in Sub-Saharan Africa via our charitable partnerships with Passion Meets Purpose and African Health Now. Gifting a Fourth Phase afterbirth care box is the perfect way to show the new mother in your life some love, and connect her journey to a mother in need globally.
What is your mission?
We want to change the face of postpartum. We have a goal to create a positive fourth trimester movement of strong mothers and fathers who know their self-worth and can feel completely confident in their new roles as parent. We aim to empower and encourage mothers to heal, feel, and be heard--knowing and feeling that they are enough.
Are your products safe for mom and baby?
Yes, all of the products inside the box are Certified Organic, phthalates free, non-toxic, cruelty-free, and sustainably sourced products.
What is the difference between the Vaginal and Belly Birth boxes?
Our PeriSoother bottle is inside the Vaginal Birth Box, but not inside the Belly Birth Box. Likewise, our BellyBirthBalm is included inside the Belly Birth Box, but not inside the Vaginal Birth box.
Do you have a C-section box option?
Yes, it’s called the Belly Birth box.
Why is it called a Belly Birth box?
We call the experience of a woman giving birth with surgical assistance a “belly birth” to help lessen the negative stigma often associated with C-sections. We believe Belly Births are as natural as vaginal births. Every mother’s goal is to deliver a happy, healthy child. And that healthy delivery is beautiful, by any means necessary.
Which box should I choose?
Select a box that matches the new mom's birthing method.
