As a doula, there’s two recommendations I always get asked for: the best gift for a baby shower, and what to pack in a hospital bag. Having recently welcomed our own bundle of joy, this selection of treats is my answer to both.
I’ve paired up with Moxie to bring you the ultimate postpartum gift edit, with a box of the whole dang lot coming in at a cool $95.30 (and, all available right here on their e-store). Perfect as a solo or group present to spoil that glowing preggo in your life (or request for yourself!).
The real MVP and the new girl on the block. Moxie have just launched their latest product - a luxurious box of postpartum pads with a reusable gel pack. These are a godsend for postpartum healing. Ultra absorbent, slim, and made with organic cotton, each box of pads also contains a clever reusable gel insert that can be heated or cooled and slipped in the pocket of a pad (or used for comfort during labour).
Bonus points if you manage to drink this while it’s hot (#mumlife), but the beauty of this tea is that it’s perfect as an iced beverage too. These silky teabags are a moment of peace to literally fill your cup.
For the regular hotties. This is only the most adorable hot water bottle you’ve ever seen! It’s small enough to pop in a hospital bag, and the perfect size to comfort a warm belly after birth. Doula tip: pop this down wherever you plan to lay your sleepy baby to rest, then remove it just before you transfer them from your arms.
They’ll snuggle in nicely and then you can take it to bed for yourself.
Let's not forget the sweet treats...
Freckle choc seems like the obvious choice (cute), but there’s also milk chocolate and dark vegan chocolate to choose from (all are gluten free). Reminder that giving birth to a whole human is wow and moderation is overrated. Shovel away.
Every new parent deserves a glo-up and sometimes lighting a tasty candle when you’re juggling a needy newborn makes the mental difference between what-have-i-done and everything-is-under-control. It’s also a welcome distraction from the inevitable heap of laundry growing in the corner of the bedroom.
These babies usully retail for $16.95, but at the time of writing they are yours for a sweet fiver in sizes L & XL (other sizes are currently sold out). Even if you or your beloved usually run smaller, it’s a good idea to size up postpartum for extra comfort.
An extra win for your luxurious gift box - you won’t need wrapping when it arrives thanks to the designer packaging (though be sure to select the 'Is this a gift' box at checkout so it comes wrapped that way. You can also leave a note, and the team will hand-write a gift card on your behalf). Moxie takes extra good care of their Moxettes with 10% off your first purchase* and free regular shipping within Australia on orders over $45. For last minute orders, simply add $12 express shipping to ensure your gift arrives in the nick of time.
A postpartum care package will support your friend’s postpartum recovery and ease the transition to parenthood, putting you first on the invite list for new baby snuggles and a cup of Moxie iced tea.
