Be a part of Wombshine's start as the UK's first company pairing vital womb health supplements with delicious plant-based chocolate

by Adele Meyer in Brighton, , United Kingdom

 New stretch target

We are looking to develop new products for people who are struggling with the hormonal impact of other cyclical events like menopause. Any stretch funding we receive will go into R&D to widen our scope for people who don't have periods, but still need vital wombcare.


Thank you for visiting Wombshine's crowdfunding page. We need your help to launch our fledgling business with a bang!

Wombshine believes wombs are overutilised and undercared for. Month after month, we witness ourselves and our loved ones push through pain, fatigue, and discomfort, ignoring our bodies' natural cycles. That’s why we partner with artisan chocolatiers to make delicious plant-based truffles that are packed with supplements proven to support periods, and deliver them through the letterbox when they're needed most.

Wombshine is "hard launching" in June 2024, and of course we are planning to throw a party to celebrate! We're using this as an opportunity to bring together the little community that has been growing around Wombshine, to mark the start of our journey to make womb care the status quo. 

Read on for how you can book a ticket to our launch party through this Crowdfunder, or use it to order our womb nourishing truffles if you're supporting from afar!

What we've been up to

On June 28 2024, we will officially launch Wombshine into the world. But it's been brewing for a while now! 

For more than two years the Wombshine team has been researching, developing and testing nutrient mixes and truffles. Because there are no other womb supplement plant-based chocolate companies in the world, there is no template. Our chocolatier partners and treasured testers helped us understand how to balance the recipe between tasting amazing and being effective. We were able to get to a place where one only needs to eat one Wombshine truffle to feel it's effects!

We also identified the purest, most ethical ingredient suppliers we could find, and searched far and wide to use only biodegradeable packaging. 

We "soft launched" in December 2023 and began trading [big ups to our first customers]. The last five months have given us the opportunity to rectify rookie mistakes, refine our operations, and make our first product as high quality and affordable as possible.

We also have collected feedback, positive and constructive, from our treasured first customers, which has helped us be mindful about the things our users care about most.

Many of the rewards tiers include a ticket to our officially super fun launch party in Brighton on Friday 28th June! We're planning a great night of performances, super hot DJ's, and lots and lots of delicious truffles.

Who we are 

Wombshine is a run by a small team based in Brighton, UK. It was conceptualised by CPO Mark Clayton and CFO Ellie Hale, who wanted to develop a way to show solidarity to their housemates lamenting their period pains while they were quarantined with three women in 2020. They were joined by Adele Meyer, CEO, in 2023, after her experience of having three successive ovarian surgeries instilled in her a passion and interest in progressing womb health and care.

Ellie representing Wombshine

Wombshine developed the chocolate truffle products in partnership with two incredible artisan chocolatiers. Sara Samain was instrumental in getting our nutrient-to-chocolate ratios right from the start, making it possible to pack effective levels of custom nutrient blends into each truffle. Victoria Tyler brought her extensive herbal knowledge, helping to develop different flavours of truffles by integrating ancient herbal womb wisdom in the mix.

Join the womb care revolution!

Wombshine is so excited to grow and evolve this product, but ultimately the mission is to change the way people relate to their bodies and their wombs, during their periods and beyond. The days of "pushing through"no matter where we are in our cycles, no matter how much we are in pain, must end. It's time we honoured our cycles, nourished our bodies and treat our wombs with the respect they deserve.

Read on about the party at the Facebook event page here

"We need to celebrate our periods instead of dreading or feeling they’re an inconvenience. The chocolate and the added medicine embody everything that we need to give ourselves at the time of the month; pleasure, comfort and love. We’re not hiding away, we’re self soothing and tapping in to our divine feminine wisdom that the bleed brings, leaning into it and not buying in to the ideas of self disgust with periods, they’re beautifully passionate and healing when we allow it to be."
