13 New mom gifts

13 New mom gifts

I remember opening a package from my sister and crying over the gift inside.

It was a mother’s tea.

I didn’t know I needed it so much until I sipped the hot liquid and felt my whole body relax. My mind was so scattered from birthing twins, it would be months {maybe years} before I thought to take care of myself.

Here are my favorite products for recovering from pregnancy.

Postpartum Care Products

#1 Yogi Tea woman’s nursing support

  • Filled with Chamomile, Stinging Nettles, Fenugreek, and Lavender, this blend will soothe her nerves and aid digestion for both mom and baby; especially if she is breastfeeding.

#2 Herbal Tinctures

  • Great for women of all ages, herbal tinctures combine adaptogens and nervines to soothe stress and anxiety.
  • Milk moon is one company, that has great tonics and tinctures that are safe while breastfeeding.

#3 Calendula Cream

From cracked nipples to diaper rash, you’ll want an all-natural Calendula salve or homeopathic cream to soothe cuts, scrapes, and boo-boos.

#4 Arnica Gel

    • Bumps, bruises, and tender areas call for arnica. This homeopathic remedy can soothe both mom and child during the growing years.

#5 Magnesium Salts

    • Most of us are deficient in magnesium and one way to absorb this mineral is through a relaxing bath. Add this to a bath for both mom and baby to soothe tethered nerves.

#6 Magnesium

  • Women are often deficient in the postpartum time period and Mg is one of the supplements we lack. Have your vitamins checked and then take Mg for muscle cramps, PMS, insomnia, and constipation. Take it at night and expect a healthy bowel movement in the morning!

#7 Vitamin D3

  • Before you take antidepressants, have your vitamins checked! Vitamin D and B13 tend to be low during the postpartum time. Increase your Vitamin D levels to reduce depression and soothe anxiety.

#8 Banyan Ayurveda Oil

      • In Ayurveda, it’s a common practice to “oil the body” to soothe tension for Vata dosha types. Apply this oil daily to soothe dry skin and release tension.

Postpartum Blues

#9 Wild Feminine

The birth of a mother is an amazing experience. Tami Lynn Kent’s book, Wild Feminine helps women of all ages discover the tension they are holding inside and how to release it naturally.

#10 Cultivate + Powersheets

Cultivate What Matters and these 2020 power sheets are amazing! We can’t do it all and we shouldn’t. Writing down what is working, what is not working, and what to focus on has been one of the greatest, unexpected gifts from motherhood. Thank you, Lara, for creating your power sheets!

Postpartum Anger

#11 Bupleurum Calmative Compound

As the liver is clearing out excess hormones during the postpartum time and during menopause, it’s common for women to have anger, PMS, and excessive heat. Known as the “Relaxed Wanderer” and the “Free and Relaxed pills”, this blend is great for PMS, PMDD, and menopause.

Postpartum Bloating

#12 Digest Gold

Bloating, constipation, and gut problems after birth are very common. Digestive enzymes can help you digest meat, dairy, and bread.

#13 Banyan Triphala

    • Constipation is not something we talk about, but it is very common during pregnancy and after childbirth. Triphala is a blend of Ayurvedic herbs that help reduce constipation and soothe tension. Caution: Check with your doctor if breastfeeding.
