When you’re expecting, it’s a special time to have all your family and friends focused on you. I will admit without shame that I loved all the attention and being fawned upon by my loved ones for 9 months.
I noticed towards the end of my pregnancy the focus of my friends and family obviously shifted from me to the baby and all the cute little gifts and outfits people wanted to buy for her. Everyone is so excited about the new baby that it’s pretty common for people you haven’t heard from in years to show up with gifts in tow for the little one.
One of the nicest gifts I got at my baby shower was a fun gift basket full of self-care items for me as a new mom.
New Mom Gift Basket
After the baby is born, new moms don’t have any time to take care of themselves; especially if they already have older kids. It’s important to remind new and expecting moms to make time for self-care, even if they only have a few minutes per day to do it.
If you really want to give a new mom a treat, offer to help her out around the house so she actually has a few minutes to take a nap with the baby or have a bath.
Pregnancy and childbirth bring about a whole bunch of bodily changes and, to be honest, most of them I was not prepared for. Sure, everyone talks about how you might accidentally pee a little bit when you cough or sneeze, but how come no one tells you that you might get hemorrhoids? Come on people, it’s kind of important to know that might happen!
It’s pretty common for new and expecting moms to suffer from hemorrhoids and constipation during pregnancy. Yes it sucks and it’s embarrassing- but you don’t have to suffer.
Waiting for the symptoms to go away on their own or trying home remedies might actually make the problem worse.
