Pregnant Mom Gift Guide
It’s that time of year again! The decorations are going up, Christmas music is playing, and Santa is not the only one making his list. Some people may have finished their holiday shopping early this year, and others are finally getting started. Is there someone on that gift list who is expecting a baby? Need some gift ideas for a pregnant mom? Read on for some great gift ideas that are sure to please!
One thing that most pregnant women have in common is that sleeping becomes very uncomfortable at a certain point. How about giving the expecting mom the gift of sleep?
The triangular Big Wedge pillow allows for sleeping in a semi-reclining position or side position to reduce back strain and provide better blood flow. Memory foam contour pillows support a more natural sleeping position by fitting around the curve of the head and neck. The long maternity body pillows support the entire body including arms, legs, and tummy for side sleeping and better spine alignment. At the Motherhood Center, we carry our own custom body pillows that are overfilled to our specifications, based on our own extensive experience with clients over the years.
All of these different kinds of maternity pillows are available in our Boutique. If you’re not sure what your recipient might like, consider getting them a gift card to the Boutique so that they can pick out their own pillow to help them get a great night’s sleep.
Physical and mental stress can plague a pregnant mom as she nears her due date. What about giving her the gift of stress relief? At the Motherhood Center we offer expert prenatal massages that will melt the stress and fatigue away. Prenatal massages would make a great gift since they provide many wonderful benefits for an aching mom.
From better sleep to less pain, the expert hands of our licensed prenatal massage therapists will deliver welcome relief to your gift recipient. Purchase a gift card or help her book an appointment at the Motherhood Center for a soothing massage experience. We are taking COVID precautions, and as an added service for those who would be more comfortable at home, our massage therapists can also make house calls.
Prenatal Yoga and Fitness Classes
Who wouldn’t want to give the gift of health? For the pregnant mom on your list, wrap a yoga mat up in a bow and attach a gift card for a yoga and fitness class. The Motherhood Center is hosting in-person and live-stream fitness classes. Exercise reduces stress and lowers the levels of cortisol in the body. This in turn boosts the immune system and increases the “feel good” chemicals in the brain. Our instructors are well-versed in prenatal techniques so that moms can have a safe and enjoyable yoga experience. Remember to let your gift recipient know that our prenatal yoga and fitness class schedule is available online.
