A Zen Gift Guide for Pregnant Mothers

Mums. They are the backbone of a family and can set the tone for a household. A mother's emotional state can greatly effect the energy in our homes. 

I won't lie - being a mum in this hectic modern world can be hard. But thankfully long gone are the days of the martyr, the self-sacrificing mother who tries to give from an empty cup. Times are changing and we are now realising that when mothers pause, rest, reset and fill their own cup they are able to give so much more to their families. Their loved ones reap the rewards from a connected, well nourished and settled mum. 

Whether you are searching for that perfect gift for a new mum or a mum that's on baby number 2 (3,4 or 5!) - this gift guide was curated to ensure that our mums are given the support, love and foundation they need to thrive. I personally believe in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine, so this flavour is heavily peppered throughout this guide!

6. The Golden Package - The Golden Month ($1,750)

This is the crème de la crème of gifts for an expectant mother! The initial shock of seeing a gift this expensive may make you gasp, but hear me out. This package is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine + Ayurveda and includes one whole month of freshly cooked meals, breastfeeding snacks + herbal tea. A qualified practitioner has a weekly home visit where you can expect to receive acupuncture, moxa treatments, personlised herbs, cupping (if necessary), herbal bath/foot soak, postnatal health checks + debrief, along with massages. The Golden Month says "In ancient cultures women are cared for in a uniquely nurturing way after childbirth, however, this form and level of care is not always a part of our western world. The Golden Package is designed to really nurture, hold and help to support healing the month post-birth".
