This does not necessarily imply sponsorship, endorsement, approval, or arrangement between www.MotherDownUnder.com and the owners of those websites.

Shipping and Delivery
When you purchase a food package, the price of delivery is included in the total price for suburbs within 10 kilometres of Brisbane’s CBD. Delivery or shipping outside of this area is $10.00. Locally, food is delivered with a certified cold courier. The food and products that can be shipped Australia wide are sent via Australia Post express delivery.
The cut-off time for orders is midnight on Thursday, for delivery (locally) or shipping (Australia wide) on Monday.
Orders are left on your doorstep and we will send you an SMS notification so you can collect it right away (unless you have left any other instructions). Please note that while food is refrigerated in transit, it will be left on your doorstep as is. If you aren’t going to be home and need your food to stay cool for a few hours, please leave an esky (or cooler bag) with ice out and we will put your order in there. If you live in a security building, please arrange for someone to buzz the driver in.
Once food has been dropped off, we will not take responsibility for spoilage or theft. We will take a photo of where and when it has been dropped off for your peace of mind.
For food packages:
I do not offer a change of mind refund for food packages. If for some reason I cannot fulfil your order I will offer you a full refund.
At Postpartum Provisions we want you to be happy with your purchase. For change of mind purchases we offer no questions asked 30 day store credit, less the cost of return shipping provided the item/s are unused and in the same condition that you received it. To receive full store credit please ensure it remains in the original packaging and any seals unbroken.
Unfortunately, if 30 days have gone by since your purchase or if the item appears used and is not in its original packaging, we can’t offer you store credit.
In the regrettable instance that any of our products are:
- Not as described in appearance or function
- Unsafe to use
You are entitled to a either a full refund or replacement as guaranteed by Australian Consumer Law.
For food packages:
If you are unhappy with your food or product, I encourage you to contact me so I can remedy the situation where suitable. If there is something wrong with your purchase, I will replace it or refund you the purchase cost.
If I am unable to provide food, you can choose to have a refund for the week’s food portion or have another meal drop at a future time. If my service is significantly different from what is outlined on my website and what we have discussed in terms of your personal care, we will discuss whether there are any potential remedies to the situation.
Jurisdiction and Dispute Resolution
Mother Down Under is located in Queensland and this agreement is subject to the governing laws of QLD and Australia.
If you have any issue or complaint arising out of your use of my services, we agree to make a genuine effort to resolve the dispute through negotiation and discussion.
If we are unable to resolve a dispute by negotiation and discussion within 14 days, the parties must proceed to mediation with the assistance of an accredited mediator who is independent of the parties. The mediator is to be appointed by agreement of the parties or, failing agreement within twenty-one (21) days of the first notification of the dispute, by a person appointed by the Chair of Resolution Institute, (Resolution Institute, email: email@example.com) or the Chair’s designated representative. The Resolution Institute Mediation Rules shall apply to the mediation. We agree to share the costs of mediation equally between us.
Litigation is to be considered a last resort and may not be commenced until, in the opinion of the independent mediator, the potential for negotiation and mediation have been exhausted.
Amendment of Terms
I reserve the right to change, modify, add or remove portions of these terms at any time. Please check these terms regularly to ensure you are aware of any changes. I will endeavour to highlight any significant or substantive changes to you where possible. If you choose to use my website and services then I will regard that use as conclusive evidence of your agreement and acceptance that these terms govern our rights and obligations to each other.
