5 Pregnancy Gifts for Mamas-to-Be

by Charise Rohm Nulsen

It can be a very exciting time when you find out that a loved one is pregnant, and we often look for special ways to treat mamas-to-be. Based on my own experience as a mama-to-be for the second time around, here are a few gifts that I think any pregnant woman would love:

1. A pampering basket
I am a huge fan of the Earth Mama Baby Angel products, and they offer the sweetest green and natural gift set for only $19.95: A Little Something for Mama-to-Be. All products are natural and organic with zero toxins, and this treat would be especially nice for a mama in her first trimester as it contains products that combat queasiness including Organic Morning Wellness Tea and Happy Mama Spray.

the unbearable lightness

2. Books
How about a book to show mama that you respect her desires to be aware, informed, and comfortable with the childbirth process? Birthing from Within is a favorite of mine (You can read my book review and enter to win a copy of the author’s other childbirth aids here). The Thinking Woman’s Guide to a Better Birth is another favorite. If you’re not sure what the mama would like, let her make her own choice with an Amazon gift card.

3. Pregnancy Massage
I don’t think any pregnant woman on the planet would be less than ecstatic to receive a gift certificate for a pregnancy massage. Pregnancy brings along many new changes to your body, and the relaxation and health benefits of a massage would be invaluable.

4. Prenatal Yoga
Prenatal yoga is such a wonderful way for pregnant women to develop an awareness of their body and breath – essential elements for a positive birth experience. It also helps mamas to center themselves and remain calm in a time that could be somewhat anxiety-filled. I am loving my prenatal yoga class. There is something about being in a room full of pregnant women who are all working towards a similar goal that is also really empowering.

If there are no prenatal yoga classes available, or if they are too expensive, a prenatal yoga DVD is a fantastic alternative. Element: Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga DVD comes highly recommended and it’s only $7.49!

5. Green Housecleaning
A pregnant mama appreciates nothing more than a break, and I think anyone would love a break from housecleaning. How about a gift certificate for a green housecleaning service? If that’s too costly, you and a friend could tag team mama’s house with some green cleaners and really giver her something to smile about.

What are you recommendations for special treats for pregnant mamas?
