It’s a time to show our appreciation for all they do for us and to let them know how much we love and care about them. But what about pregnant moms? They’re also mothers-to-be, and they deserve to be celebrated on Mother’s Day too. Pregnant and new mom’s are celebrating their day, possibly for the VERY FIRST TIME.
Pregnancy can be a challenging time for moms. They’re going through a lot of physical and emotional changes, and they’re often tired and uncomfortable. A new mom might be overwhelmed with all that she has to do now (and with lack of sleep, when the baby gets up during the night), it’s not easy. A special Mother’s Day gift is a great way to show your pregnant or new mom that you’re thinking of her and that you appreciate all she’s doing for your family.
- A gift certificate for a massage or spa treatment
- A little help relaxing
- Something special for the baby
- A book about pregnancy or parenting
- A piece of jewelry with a little reminder engraved
- A book that puts a smile on her face
- Creams, lotions and serums
No matter what you choose, make sure it’s something that the new mom will appreciate and enjoy. A thoughtful gift is a great way to show her how much you care. Here are a few gifts that I found that any pregnant or new mom would love to have.
Mama Bear Pillow
Whether she’s rocking the baby back to sleep or she’s setting up the nursery for the first time, she will love this classic throw pillow with the word “MAMA” which appears strong and bold within a gray bear on this cream-colored latch hook accent pillow. Handcrafted from wool yarn and backed in soft cotton velveteen for added comfort, this is one of those treasured items that can be passed down from generation to generation.
She’ll also love the fact that your gift supports the National Wildlife’s Federation to make sure that wildlife is protected. As America’s largest conservation organization, the NWF is on the ground across our nation’s diverse and wondrous landscapes, fighting to protect our most treasured natural resources and creating experiences that inspire a lifelong connection with wildlife and wild places.

Genexa Real Medicine Made Clean
Mom worries about the meds she and her family takes. With some of her brood having allergies (like I do) to certain medications, it’s nice to know that Genexa makes clean OTC medicines with the same, effective active ingredients as the legacy brands but no artificial fillers. Surprise her by stocking her medicine cabinet with the important OTC meds that she’s been looking for.
Genexa covers everything from cough, cold, flu, digestion and allergy for infants, kids and adults. Adult products like their Acetaminophen Extra Strength (clean Tylenol) and Antacid (clean Tums) are best sellers with expecting moms needing relief but who don’t want the artificial dyes, sweeteners and other chemically-derived ingredients while pregnant.
The Infants Pain & Fever (same effective acetaminophen in Infants Tylenol) and organic Infants Vitamin D drops are great for gifts for new moms to help them prep a clean medicine / first aid shelf for their babes!

Well, you can change her life with this portable system that stores, cools and monitors breastmilk while mom is on-the-go.

Enough About Baby
New mom’s love their baby…but sometimes they feel like, well…I’ve heard ENOUGH. Enough About the Baby: A Brutally Honest Guide to Surviving the First Year of Motherhood is the long-awaited, much needed guide to new motherhood that has nothing to do with the baby. Author Becky Viera’s describes the book as “everything I wish I had known” and provides actionable, real-world advice on how to successfully endure the challenges a new baby brings to every aspect of life.
She gets to the bottom of the toughest and most taboo topics—including how to manage nosy in-laws and an anxious partner, soothe a battered nether region, post-baby body image and seek out treatment for depression. Vieira dismantles the way women have previously discussed motherhood in favor of a more honest dialogue, presenting a first of its kind guide for new and expecting moms. The book is peppered with advice from experts, from doctors to baby seat reviewers, and stories from other moms that help illustrate the good, bad and exhausting parts of motherhood that often go unspoken.

And, even if someone doesn’t have health insurance they are given free appts by SimpliFed.

The trend lately has gone far from the old maternity clothes and moving to comfy clothing and sleepwear that works throughout pregnancy and beyond. I wish that when I was pregnant (many years ago), that we had thought to do that. Not only is it more stylish, but it is also eco-friendly and affordable.
Kindred Bravely’s sleepwear, bras & undies and clothing do JUST THAT. They work from pregnancy through breastfeeding and on to shear comfort throughout those days, weeks and months after the baby arrives.
