2018 Holiday Gift Guide for Pregnant Moms, by Pregnant Moms!

I took a poll on the internet, to try to find out what pregnant women wanted most! Surprisingly when I first asked this question, many replied with answers of things they wanted for their babies and not them! Don’t worry, I didn't stop asking until I got an answer about what mom really wanted for herself. As we all know, if mom has what she needs, she will be able to better show up to the world. I love how many of the answers I received were ones that reduce stress and help mom be more healthy during her nine month journey. Any pregnant woman in your life will be very pleased, maybe even pleasantly surprised with any of the gifts from this list. Let’s see what the women want!

Massage - 33%

First up, the most popular responses were prenatal massages and self care items! Make sure when purchasing a massage gift card you ask if there is actually a prenatal massage therapist who works there. In my city, I am even able to find massage therapist who solely specialize in pre and postnatal.
