Whether she’s your significant other, daughter, mother, or just the best friend ever, there are some fantastic holiday gifts for expecting women. Pregnancy is one of the most exciting times in a woman’s life, but Eagle’s Landing OB/GYN can also attest it can be a difficult time. Emotions can spin out of control and oftentimes a pregnant woman feels uncomfortable, so spoil your pregnant giftee by selecting a holiday gift that is made just for her.
Don’t skimp on the maternity or nursing pajamas; buy luxurious jammies to comfort the expecting recipient. Make sure the pajamas are unbelievably soft and cozy, yet breathable to avoid overheating. Softness and airy warmth comfort a woman while she’s pregnant and after she’s given birth. Consider her need to nurse after the baby is born and choose functional yet pretty pajamas to boost her spirits.
A pregnancy pillow is more than just a full-body pillow, and it makes the perfect holiday gift for those expecting. A pregnancy pillow not only helps expecting mothers sleep comfortably, but they also support mom while she’s nursing her newborn. Remember, a growing baby places pressure on the spine, bladder and pelvis, and a pregnancy pillow can help alleviate the associated pain and discomfort.
Studies show that unborn babies respond to music, and belly headphones are a perfect gift for the expecting mother who wishes to encourage optimal fetal development. These phones fit on the belly and can be plugged into a music player. The expecting mom should choose relaxing, classical music for the best results according to scientists who have studied the effects of music on fetal development.
Studies have also shown that EMF waves – Wi-Fi radiation – can harm growing fetuses and their moms. Face it, we live in a radioactive society. How many devices do you have in your home that run off the Wi-Fi router? A belly band wraps around the pregnant belly and protects the baby from the dangerous EMF waves. Women can wear the band underneath their clothing so nobody knows they have it on.
Think your back hurts after work? Imagine carrying a growing baby that rests against the spinal cord nonstop. A maternity support belt will help support the back and relieve your pregnant gift recipient’s pain. The support belt can also help alleviate pelvic pain, including pain in the hips and legs. Although not as cozy as a nice pair of pajamas, this belt makes for a more comfortable pregnancy.
