The birth of a child is one of the most special times in your life and should be treated as such. It is also, however, extremely intense and a lot of hard work, particularly for mummy. It makes sense then that at this time mummy should be pampered and well looked after, whether that be with special toffees or flowers. It is with this in mind that we take a look at some of the ways you can treat mummy after the birth of a new baby.
Say it with Flowers
There’s nothing quite like a beautiful bunch of fresh flowers to say thank you, to show how much you care or to celebrate a special occasion. Heading down to your local florist, soon after the birth of a new baby, is a must – but what type of flowers to choose?1
A bunch of white flowers is hard to beat and they, in this instance, are symbolic of the purity that a new born baby brings with it into the world. Other ideas include pink for a girl and blue for a boy. Lilies, roses and tulips are all popular types of cut flowers, but ultimately the decision should come from the heart.
Treat Her with Chocolates
A trip down to Thorntons for some exquisite chocolates, toffee or sweets is another great idea. Chocolates are a wonderful way to celebrate and are often associated with love. When we eat chocolate our brains release endorphins and serotonin and this makes us feel good.
So, choosing chocolates as a treat for mummy after the birth of a new baby will taste great and they will amplify the wonderful feelings and emotions that you are all having.
Push the Boat Out
There are many traditions that are associated with the birth of a new baby and one of them is the giving of an eternity ring. They are a token of everlasting love and are generally made from gold, silver or platinum with precious stones, such as diamonds set into them.
Giving eternity rings can be traced back to the ancient Egyptians and therefore you are continuing in a time honoured tradition. Not only that, but you are also creating a legacy by purchasing something that can be handed down through your own family in years to come.
There are many ways to treat mummy after the birth of a new baby and it is worth bearing in mind that whichever you decide to opt for that it is the thought that counts.
