When my sister told me she was pregnant a few years ago, I immediately sent her a WishGarden care package. After listening to hundreds of postpartum women, I knew exactly which formulas she’d need as a new mom. And I wanted her to have them all before she delivered, because I’ve seen first-hand how difficult it can be to do anything once the chaos of new parenthood sets in. It made me so happy every time she called to tell me she’d used one of the formulas and how grateful she was to have the products at her fingertips. When an issue arose, she was able to tackle it immediately before things got worse and she didn’t have to worry about rushing around to a store or waiting on products to ship.
Knowing exactly what a new mom would want and need inspired the creation of our New Mama Care Postpartum Essentials kit, which has become an instant best seller. If you’re expecting, going to a baby shower or supporting a family as a birth worker, this kit makes the perfect gift.
Postpartum Essentials Kit
AfterEase - After Birth Contractions
You've made it! 40 long weeks of pregnancy, the marathon of labor and finally your bundle of joy has arrived. But just when you think you’re past the toughest part...BAM! Your abdomen tightens up and you start having flashbacks of early labor. While not everyone experiences after birth contractions, they are normal, temporary, and common as the uterus works to return to its normal size. This can be particularly uncomfortable for anyone who’s had multiple births (damn that muscle memory!).
Here’s the good news – AfterEase works in-the-moment to promote fast relief. This formula is our #1 selling pregnancy product thanks to the power of moms sharing their postpartum must haves. It supports relaxation of your uterus and calms your body so you can get out of discomfort and enjoy those early days of warm snuggles and baby bliss!
Postpartum Emotional - Baby Blues
Nothing quite prepares you for motherhood. It's a gift like no other that transforms your entire life in less than a year's time. And while you love your bundle of joy immensely and are giving this new role everything, you’ve got, it’s totally normal to have moments of overwhelm and emotional sensitivity in the early postpartum days. I mean let’s not forget - your hormones are on a roller coaster.
Postpartum Emotional works in-the-moment to help rescue your mood and ground your emotions. With liver support for those raging hormones, nervous system support for the restless thoughts, and mood lifters to cheer you up, this formula is uniquely designed to help you navigate through those moments of overwhelm like the badass mom boss you are!
Milk Rich - Supply Booster
Mother's milk is the most nutritious food on the planet. That's why it's often affectionately referred to as 'liquid gold'. It provides all the nourishment a baby needs in their first 6 months of life and satisfies their hydration needs for the first year. But sometimes milk supply can dwindle due to stressors in the mother's life, inadequate nutrition, and even maternal genetics.
Milk Rich has a traditional blend of botanicals to amplify your supply. This well-rounded formula helps nourish mom and build mammary tissue to support milk production and volume. Your baby gets the gold, and you get the peace of mind knowing your little bundle of joy is well-nourished.
Happy Ducts - Free the Flow
Nursing is a beautiful gift for mom and baby but also a lot of work. If you ask us, you deserve a medal (and maybe a paycheck) for all you do. But the frustrating reality is, nursing can come with a host of discomforts. Sometimes your milk flow is more like a traffic jam, and when a clog shows up, things can get uncomfortable fast. Happy Ducts offers profound support to a nursing mom struggling with a clogged duct. This formula encourages the body’s immune & inflammatory response while supporting lymph movement and a healthy microbial balance. Happy Ducts is best used at the onset of symptoms and is meant to be a short-term acute remedy.
