Meet Poorly Boo

How did it all start?

Poorly Boo was the vision of Mumpreneur Manju Bhatia, who quickly realised that many new parents did not have the essential remedies in their homes for when their little ones became ill. Having young children herself, Manju was often in the company of other mums with small children and often heard them saying their baby had a high temperature and had to run out to get some medicine.

Manju thought, “Why are so many new parents so ill equipped at home? Why do so many not have the medicine in the cupboard to alleviate their symptoms?”

When Manju become a mum in 2013, she made sure she was prepared with all of the remedies and over-the-counter medications that she might need. Although it didn’t stop the sleepless nights when they were poorly, it did mean she had what she needed so the family could all rest a bit easier.

Since 2017, Poorly Boo has been selling essential healthcare products online at: https://poorlyboo.com/

Who is Manju?

Manju Bahtia is originally from Yorkshire, where her interest in business came from working in her parents’ uniform shop, Natasha’s.  The family run business, which had several outlets in Yorkshire, sold school uniforms to dozens of schools in the region. At a young age, Manju had a strong business nous and enjoyed the buzz of a business environment.

Manju helped her father set business goals and was successful in growing the business to reach a turnover of more than £1 million.

After successfully reaching their goal of £1million, Manju left her family home to get married and start her own family. She focused her attention on raising her 2 children, and after spending time with new mums and their babies, Manju realised there wasn’t anything in the market to help new parents understand what medicines and remedies were important to have on hand.

Her eureka moment came during these conversations, and PoorlyBoo was soon launched.
