If you are a seasoned mom or even someone who has not had children, finding the perfect gift for a new mom can be challenging. Every year, it seems as though new and improved products are coming out, and it can be hard to keep up with it all.
Choosing the right gift for a new mom doesn’t have to be as difficult as it appears. So many people focus on getting items for the baby that they forget to treat the mom to something special or needed during her pregnancy and recovery. Maternity and postpartum products for new moms are an amazing gesture that every mom will be grateful for.
What does a new mom need during postpartum recovery?
In addition to lack of sleep, a new mom’s body is going through many changes. During pregnancy, a woman's uterus grows 500 times its size. During postpartum, a woman's uterus slowly shrinks back to its original size. As the uterus grows due to the baby growing, it can put a lot of pressure and pain on the pelvis and lower back. Also, during recovery, ligaments, joints, and muscles weaken and need extra support while they heal from pregnancy and delivery. If a woman has a c-section, her recovery tends to be a lot harder and needs extra support as she heals. Postpartum products are designed with the new mom in mind. Every woman deserves extra support, and these products will offer just that.

Healing from a c-section can make these adjustments to motherhood more tiresome and difficult. C- section & Postpartum Recovery Underwear are the perfect undies for a c-section mom.

During pregnancy, blood volume increases by 50% on average. While you may not feel the need to wear compression socks until you notice swelling in your legs or feet, prevention is vital. As the baby grows, the body starts to retain water which is normal and expected. However, that causes the swelling in your legs and feet, especially during traveling or standing for long periods. The compression socks help alleviate the swelling by providing even compression throughout the calves down to the toes. These socks will improve blood circulation and redirect the blood supply from the legs and feet to the heart. In addition, maternity compression socks feature a scalloped edge to eliminate digging, seamless toe for optimal comfort, and silver-infused material to help eliminate bacteria and odors. Making this the perfect gift for a pregnant mom.
