Show expectant mothers the love they deserve this Mother’s Day.
An expectant mom is already a mother. While the baby may not be in their arms yet, it’s her belly feeling all the nourishment and love she has to give. If you’re questioning whether you should celebrate this upcoming Mother’s Day, the answer is absolutely. Whether you’re the mom-to-be or someone wanting to show an expectant mother how much she’s loved, here’s how to celebrate the special day.
The journey of creating a life is a special moment in any woman’s life and should be documented for her to remember. Regardless of how far along she is in her pregnancy, take the day to do a maternity shoot and create a book where she can see the progress in her belly. Make her feel extra special by helping her do her hair and makeup or setting up an appointment to have it done for her. Then find a beautiful location to snap away. She’ll be able to enjoy the photos and the memory of her first Mother’s Day for a lifetime.
Book a Babymoon
Newborns can be time consuming and limit your travel days, so why not take one last trip before the baby arrives? Whether it’s a romantic getaway with your partner or a time for some much-needed relaxation, use this opportunity to reflect on your journey to motherhood. If flying is out of the question book something local. A staycation can still offer you the quick escape you need to enjoy some pampering, good food and fresh air. Or, you can take this time to explore a place you’ve never been.
It’s no secret that growing a human isn’t easy on the body. Treat your expectant mom to a day at the spa for a full manicure and pedicure treatment. Depending on how round her belly is, she may not be able to see her toes, but she will surely appreciate them looking good. Bring that baby glow out by making her feel as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside.
If there’s one gift any expectant mother will appreciate, it’s a little pampering. Whether you’re the father-to-be or her best friend, make today all about her. Start with buying her a comfy set of sweats to lounge around in. Whip up (or order) some of her favorite foods to serve her in bed, clean the house for her, then decorate it with her favorite flowers. Spend the day watching her favorite movies on Cox Contour or create a relaxing playlist using Cox Homelife automation that she can listen to while she soaks in a warm bubble bath.
Decorate the Nursery
Baby clothes, baby toys and baby décor – is there anything cuter? Helping to create the perfect nursery and letting the mother-to-be admire all the cuteness in one room is a great way to spend Mother’s Day. And it’s a great excuse to go shopping. Spend the day buying all the things the baby will need and fill the room with every adorable thing you can think of – decor, stuffed animals and the tiny outfits you can’t resist getting. It’ll be a room where she can sit and dream about the special moments still to come.
