The Practical Choice: A Robe That Covers All
Giving birth, no matter the method, means a lot of leaking. You’re leaking out of multiple parts, small people are leaking out of their own parts onto you, and shirts and pants might be stained or sagging. Pick out a robe, a long luxurious robe that she can wrap around herself to feel fancy. Make sure it’s thick enough to absorb a bit of milk or drool and wide enough that it’ll fit even if she’s engorged.
The Mental Health Choice: Sweet Silence With No One Touching Her
From one point of view, the best of all gifts. From another point of view, something that should be happening regularly anyways. Don’t stress her out with “BUT WHAT WILL I DO IF” questions, or guilt trip with “Awwww, baby’s going to miss you so much” comments. Just offer to take your baby out somewhere where she can’t hear it, so she can REST.
The Fancy Choice: A Mother’s Photoshoot.
Our family takes professional photos so rarely that we tend to cram everyone on in there. What about a photoshoot just for her and the kids, to celebrate their love? Make a huge print of her favorite and put it where she can see it every day.
