Below are 4 fabulous, over-the-top, gift ideas we know pregnant families will cherish. Honor this special time in their lives and spread some cheer during this holiday season.
In-Home Culinary Services
MamaFare is Atlanta's private culinary service for postpartum families. The small window as a brand new family is so fleeting and precious. MamaFare eliminates one major task during this time by making it convenient for new moms to nourish themselves well while learning to care for their baby.
In the first weeks after leaving the hospital, MamaFare provides tailored in-home culinary service and nourishment for the soul. Each meal is loaded with fresh, local and organic ingredients, designed with the nutritional needs of the post-natal and nursing mama in mind. Sound nutrition along with adequate rest, and support in the first few weeks postpartum are essential in setting up a solid milk supply, healing efficiently and preventing postpartum depression.
Don't let your loved ones rely on takeout and pizza delivery - the postpartum time is too important to waste on fast food! Our slow-food approach will best encourage a healthy and supported "baby moon." Let the new parents relax while their personal chef, Jeni takes care of ALL of the cooking (and clean-up!) so they can spend more time with their adorable baby.
Newborn Care * Parent Shadow * Baby Whispering
Pregnant families can learn all about newborn infant care and calming tools, and how to implement a daily routine to promote the best nighttime sleep...and much more! The team at Parent Nurture is a collective of registered nurses, a pediatric nurse practitioner, and certified infant care specialists. During pregnancy, the New Parent Essential Lesson prepares families for taking care of their baby once they've returned home from the hospital.
Following the birth of their baby, a newborn specialist will visit the clients' home to observe, train and walk them through daily life with a newborn. This postpartum service allows new parents to ask “real life” questions the moment they pop into their head. It's the ideal service to alleviate new parent jitters and anxiety, while providing expert care of their newborn.
Pregnancy and Postpartum Massages
Give the gift of massage for complete relaxation and enjoyment. Individual or couples massages are available at the Virginia Highlands and Roswell locations of The Pregnancy Massage Center. Their certified pregnancy massage therapists have specific knowledge to alleviate perinatal pain and understand all stages of pregnancy and postpartum, and lend emotional support, if needed.
Welcome Baby! Newborn Photography
Gift a Welcome Baby! lifestyle photography shoot from Christina Hodgen of BirthYearBook. This unique session takes place within the first few days following a baby's birth and is designed to capture not only the parents getting to know the baby, but other family members such as siblings and grandparents.
The Welcome Baby! session includes 2 hours of newborn photography, 2 newborn mini-books (gift for the grandparents?) and of course, edited files with unlimited personal printing rights to share on Instagram or Facebook.
Additional services include Just Birth Photography (seen on the video below), Family Portraiture, and our signature service (the whole enchilada), BirthYearBook, which includes maternity, birth and newborn photography provided in a hard-cover keepsake and mini-books pictured above.
