Christmas shopping for a pregnant friend or partner isn’t always easy. She probably feels like she’s missing out on all the fun and not able to wear her usual party frocks. She’ll also be worrying about all the preparations – furnishing the nursery, choosing the right pram, not to mention fitting in all those antenatal classes AND figuring out what to wear for the birth.
Since baby almost certainly has a bigger wardrobe than your loved one already, buying yet more cute outfits for the little one to be probably isn’t the solution. But there are some gifts out there that can show you’ve thought about the woman your loved one is, as well as the Mum she’s about to become.
Luxurious body cream
For a little something to hide under the Christmas tree nothing beats Trilogy’s Everything Balm, the ultimate multi-tasking tool for mum and baby. Made with Trilogy’s signature ingredient Certified Organic Rosehip Oil, this all-purpose, environmentally friendly product is perfect from pregnancy to birth and beyond.

Stylish birthing wrap
With birthwear becoming the new buzz word of the maternity world, New Zealand designers Womama have created the Womama Birthing Wrap – because every pregnant woman deserves a little black dress to birth in! Not only does this give your yummy mummy to be something gorgeous to wear on her big day, the wrap styling makes it a versatile maternity dress in the weeks leading up the birth and makes it practical to wear throughout the labour and birth process, even allowing for easy and immediate skin-to-skin contact with their newborn, which helps to promote bonding and breastfeeding.

An informative day
But if you’re an expecting Dad and really wanting to spoil your mum to be, then take time to check out Gentle Birth Antenatal classes. Instead of having to attend courses spread over several weeks, Gentle Birth can provide ‘at home’ courses, where you can combine your need to learn about all things baby related with a wonderful, relaxing day at home with your partner – a real Christmas treat for both of you! www.gentlebirth.org.uk
