    Default Gift for mum who has just had a caesarean

    Hi there,

    A friend of mine has just had a caesarean after she longed for a natural birth.

    Can anyone recommend me a gift that I could give her? She is in a considerable amount of pain. I do plan on giving something to her baby but I was hoping maybe someone knew something specific they would have liked for themselves after a c section.

    Thanks so much any ideas are helpful!

    I would have loved a voucher for a pamper.. Ie a facial or massage. Something to make me feel human again.

    God I can't think what I wanted. something to take the pain away and make me feel human. maybe a voucher for a head and neck massage. nothing that involved laying down as the cut felt weird.

    How thoughtful of you! I was in a world of pain after my c-section. Things that made me feel nice , which i kept within arms reach were nice hand cream, lipgloss, nut/choc bars, tissues and fancy fruit juice. Maybe a small hamper of things like that?

    After my emergency c sec with DS1, MIL brought me a little jurlique skincare pack to the hospital. Nice facial wash, moisturiser, night cream. It was so nice to have a little pretty-smelling luxury when I felt so utterly fowl.

    I think a nice hamper just for her is a lovely idea. With both my caesareans I was in so much pain, I liked having my heat pack close by to ease some of the pain and comfy warm socks. Otherwise some cooked meals for the freezer would be great so she can rest and recover and not have to worry about cooking meals.

    I didn't have a section but was/am in bad shape after tearing and episio with blood loss.
    Something I loved was a hamper my sister gave me with trail mix, apples, kiwis, mandarins, Lindt chocolate, chai tea bags and yoghurt sultanas. The pain meds ruined my appetite so having little snacks was really handy as I could generally manage them.
    Also receiving gifts for me rather than the baby was lovely ☺️
