The Muka pito tie is a beautiful natural alternative to your normal plastic umbilical cord clamp. Handmade with aroha by a beautiful mama of four tamariki which includes triplets.
- It has its own natural antiseptic qualities
- Easy and gentle to use on babies skin
- Tied off with a tumbled New Zealand greenstone piece sourced from the Hokitika
Each one comes with its own cotton bag and care card to guide you when you are ready to use it. Once used it can be returned to the whenua (earth).
If you’re looking to make your own muka tie for your pēpi, please search for hapū Wānanga in your area. There are many held throughout the country, and most are free of charge. However if you do not have access to a hapū Wānanga, but still want to use a natural alternative to the traditional plastic clamp then we are here to provide this option for you and your pēpi.
