With the holidays fast approaching, here are 4 useful and thoughtful gifts for an expecting mom in your life to help alleviate the stress that comes along with preparing for the little one.
LaborGrip- “Get a grip on labor.”
Labor is no joke, and no matter if you are planning for an epidural, natural, or C-section, those contractions HURT! LaborGrip is a new product out in 2020 that is designed to help “get a grip in labor” by giving the mom something to focus on and take the pain out on as she squeezes the LaborGrip. I know my husband wished it had come out sooner to save his hand from being squeezed by me! The LaborGrip is ergonomically designed for easy hold with a palm grip and gripping pad. There are four springs that are adjustable under the removable gripping pad on the bottom. You adjust each to allow for maximum comfort that still gives enough force to help alleviate pain during contractions when you squeeze the LaborGrip. It is small and lightweight, so it fits easily in the go bag for the hospital, and is even small enough to fit in your pocket. Check it out at https://laborgrip.com/.
Countdown to Mama
Countdown to Mama boxes are the perfect gift for expecting moms to celebrate themselves and the new baby that is growing inside. The boxes come already packaged in a decorative canvas bag, so no gift wrapping needed! There are 14 little drawers to open in the box, a countdown for the 14 days or 14 weeks until baby arrives! The box is designed that it can even be gifted to a mom after she has had her little bundle of joy because each drawer contains an item that is something an expecting or new mama needs, will enjoy, or just celebrates the amazing transition to motherhood! The Countdown to Mama box is only $185, but includes over $249 worth of goodies. This is such a thoughtful and unique gift for baby showers, holidays, or anytime for an expecting or new mom. They can be shipped in 5-8 business days, and because the box comes in a canvas bag and then bubble wrapped in a shipping box, it is ready to go directly to the mama!
