Being a new mom isn’t easy: between all-night feeding sessions, hormonal upheavals, loss of personal time and space, and recovering from bringing a human being into existence through their very bodies, there’s a lot for a new mom to get used to. New motherhood is about many feelings, like joy and love but also extreme discomfort. The best gifts for new moms show that you really, truly appreciate what she just went through in birthing a human and this is your humble way of proving that to her.
