The Best Gifts for Postpartum Moms

The Best Gifts for Postpartum Moms

Written by: Brooke, Certified Postpartum Doula

Most moms don’t plan enough for themselves after birth! The best gifts you can give can come in two forms. One form would be physical support that you or someone provides. Another form would be products or items for the mother to assist in her recovery.


Physical support can look like hiring a Postpartum Doula to assist the mother/family around the house, with the newborn, and with the mother’s recovery.

Other items might include:

  • making food or meals
  • organizing a meal train
  • delivering groceries
  • dropping off coffee or a mama-favorite treat can also help

If you’re on a tight budget, you can offer to help with the dishes, laundry, or tidying around the house yourself!


Some products moms could benefit from are Motherlove’s postpartum and breastfeeding lines, which include herbal remedies such as Sitz Bath Spray, C-section Cream, Rhoid Balm, Nipple Cream, and breastfeeding supplements that enhance milk supply.

Other items might include:

  • overnight menstrual pads
  • a nursing gown
  • snacks for late-night nursing sessions
  • menstrual pads
  • large water bottle 
  • nursing pillow
  • personal items such as lip balm, hair ties, tissues, etc. 
Whether you offer your time by helping around the house or sending a care package filled with products to help soothe and comfort mom, the support will make a huge difference in her postpartum journey.”
