The Mamavation inbox gets flooded with messages each day. I have a staff, but really still monitor most of it myself. I also have three kids and a husband and I work from home on tons of other projects, so give me a break. This means I may miss your email. So here are the most frequently asked questions answered for you.
How do I get into the Mamavation Facebook Group?
Mamavation’s private group is for females only. If you are female and would like to join our supportive group, click here. The purpose of this group is to help women navigate the home and strive for a more non-toxic lifestyle. Women in this group represent all stages from newbies to deep green and all are welcome. Do not enter to spam this group because you will be removed immediately. You’ll need to answer the entry questions to gain access to the group.
How do I work with ShiftCon Eco-Wellness Influencer Conference?
ShiftCon will be October 8th-10th, 2020 in Irvine, California. The is the annual event for wellness, green, fitness, green parenting & lifestyle bloggers. If you are inquiring about a media kit to partner and meet with the hundreds of bloggers at the event, email me with “NEED SHIFTCON MEDIA KIT” in the title at leah at mamavation dot com.
I would like Leah Segedie to speak to my group!
I’ve spoken to over 30 different conferences and events pertaining to “greening your home,” marketing & it’s impact on the public sphere, digital moms and their product decisions, how to work with influencers, how to build a thriving online community, how every body type has a right to thrive, or how to empower women online. I’ve MCed several events and am available for book signings with book Green Enough. If you would like me to speak at an event you are having please email leah at mamavation dot come with this in the title “I WANT YOU TO SPEAK!”
I would like Leah Segedie to check out my product!
I do NOT guarantee coverage of any product sent to me. So you need to understand that up front. If you decide to send me a product anyway for inclusion in a future product investigation, please email me at leah at mamavation dot com with “NEED ADDRESS TO SEND PRODUCT” please.
Do you accept guest submissions?
We are only accepting guest posts from people with professional certifications relating to hormone-disrupting chemicals and their impact on public health right now. This means we are looking for medical doctors, nurses, scientists, registered dietitians, etc. We also accept content from individuals who lead non-profit organizations who can make sense of food packaging, pesticide residue, and plasticizer issues.
Can I place an advertisement on your site?
We are currently with She Media Partner Network. If you are interested in securing ads, please contact them directly. We do not add text link ads into our articles and are not selling private ads at this time.
Can I hire you for a sponsored post or to become an ambassador for my brand?
I do a very limited amount of sponsored posts. Please check to see whether we have evaluated your industry in our product investigations here. We prefer to work with brands that we have already evaluated and know to be amazing. To partner with Mamavation, you’ll need to be open to sharing laboratory results with us regarding pesticide residue, plasticizers, PFAS, or fire retardants as needed.
If you have a CBD company, I’ll need to see laboratory results on pesticide residue, phthalates, & heavy metals and you have to be willing to let me send your product away to a private lab that I work with directly to verify.
If you don’t receive a response in a timely fashion, email me with the subject line, “SPONSORED POST–TIME SENSITIVE” and I will make sure to get it to you ASAP at leah at mamavation dot com.
Will you put in a backlink for me?
We do not do this. No, not even for a billion dollars.
Can I subscribe to your newsletter?
You’ll love our newsletter! Don’t miss our non-toxic investigations on products and food you’d buy at the store, uplifting stories about positive things that are happening, and community support! Sign up here to get weekly newsletters from Mamavation!
I’m a writer or publicist and am interested in having a book featured or an author interview. How can I get a book featured?
I don’t have the ability to review most books. So if your book is in line with a non-toxic food supply, product investigations, female empowerment, HAES (health at every size) community, or interesting green-friendly children’s book, we may be interested.
If your book is a good fit, I promise to contact you with my mailing address. But really the easiest way to get to know me or any of the bloggers that work with me you really should come to ShiftCon Eco-Wellness Influencer Conference and get to know us all.
How can I get my product, service, app featured on your site?
We do product investigations about pretty much everything inside the home. We don’t charge for the inclusion of any of these investigations. If we have not done one on your industry yet and you think your product would be one of the safest and would like to help us understand the industry, in general, please email me leah at mamavation dot com with “I HAVE INTIMATE DETAILS OF THE [??fill in the blank] INDUSTRY AND WOULD LIKE TO SHARE.” We are always looking for insiders to help us understand each product and how hormone-disrupting chemicals can appear inside those products.
If we missed your product, reply back to us “YOU MISSED US IN THE [??fill in the blank] INVESTIGATION!” and we will be more than happy to add you to this post or to a future update.
If you are representing an app, we only cover apps that are relevant to the topics we cover on the site.
I disagree with your ranking of my product and want a revision!
Mamavation creates clear benchmarking for our product investigations. Our benchmarking is created after we look at all the products available and what is happening in each industry. We are unlikely to change the benchmarking because that is based on trends, but are open to swapping your brand to another category if we are wrong in the materials or ingredients you use and you can prove that with laboratory results or documentation. If your product has been reformulated and you would like a change in our product investigation, we are more than happy to change it! And again, reply back with “WE REFORMULATED! INGREDIENTS/MATERIALS DIFFERENT THAN INVESTIGATION.”
I would like to donate products to any type of event or giveaway you have!
As an event producer, I’m always looking for non-toxic products and food to give to my guests. If you are interested in donating product to an in-person event we are affiliated with email me at leah at mamavation dot com using title “DONATE PRODUCT” and I’ll get back to you.
I represent a PR company and I would like to have Leah Segedie come to an event in Los Angeles.
I’m an extroverted introvert. I can leave the house and hang with you, but then I have to go back and hide in my house for several days cause I’m really an introvert. How confusing is that? Anyways, this totally has a point. This means I may say no to you if I’m too busy with the kids or may just have social anxiety. Okay, let’s face it. I just hate leaving the house.
I represent a PR company and want to invite Leah Segedie to an event or tour out of town.
I’m more adventurous when it comes to trips requiring traveling because it’s also like having a mini-vacation. My favorite trips involve factory or farm tours where I get to see where our food is produced, how things are stored, and what the process behind that looks like. Typically offers out of town require travel, lodgings, meals & entertainment to be covered.
I’m emailing you and need you to click on this link so I can launch unholy hell on your computer.
I hate you.
