I guess you could say we have a little insight on important products that make a difference in a lot of new mother's lives. So before you begin your shopping for that new mom in your life this Mother's Day, here are the things you need to know about that are on their want, need and wish lists! 


Still Expecting


1) The item that is seriously on EVERY mothers must-have list… 

A practical gift that she will love and actually use is the perfect pair of support stretch leggings (that do not go see through!) An expecting mom can be are super comfortable in a pair of maternity leggings because they truly go with anything and everything and can be taken to pre natal yoga or walks in the park! Maternity leggings are built to last with more coverage, support and options with panels that can be worn folded or up over the bump. Shop all our maternity leggings here

2) The item they all come back to re purchase once they try it… 

If the new mom on your list is working during her pregnancy, or has had problems with water retention or puffy feet, this cooling gel is a pampering treat! Packed with energising oils and refreshing spearmint to revive tired legs and de-puff ‘tight’, swollen feet. (Even better when it comes WITH a foot massage ;) Shop all skin care here. 

3) The maternity fashion item that is trending hard right now… 

The striped stretch maternity dress is this spring/summer's hottest trend! AND the best part is that it is also comfortable and practical. Celebrity moms (like Kourtney Kardashian) have been rocking this trend with jean jackets & boots and moms love the way it shows off their baby bump and its practically pinned onto every 'maternity style' interest board there is. Shop all maternity stretch dresses here. (These are going fast!) 


New Baby 


1) On every moms wish list… (they hold these and they can't put them down) 

A posh diaper bag that looks sleek and modern is an amazing gift for the fashion conscious mom, or one who would love to be able to continue to use the bag after the baby has grown out of diapers! Give the gift of organization and sophistication with a well designed diaper bag that looks as good (if not better) than your average handbag. Just because she's a mom, does't mean she has to give up her style! Shop all diaper bags here.

2) The comfort piece every mom LOVES for baby 

Nursing pillows are a god send to (especially first time) nursing moms. It helps by lifting the baby to reduce strain on mom's back, neck, shoulders and arms and allow for proper latch-on. This pillow is also great for bottle feeding babes, to position around a sleeping baby, co sleeping, helping them sit up and the list goes on! Over all, this pillow is extremely versatile and handy pillow that moms use a lot! Shop the baby buddy here.

3) A fun piece any mom can appreciate! 

Who doesn't love accessories?! Add a pop of colour to a new moms wardrobe with this cute periwinkle polka dot scarf! Goes great with jeans and a tee or over a summer dress. Save room in the diaper bag - this scarf can also transform into a stylish nursing shawl to keep the baby covered in style! Shop the scarf by Seraphine here

(Don't forget the foot rub part ;)

    You can get your ex back and cure your infertility problems with Dr. Odunga

    When I met Dr. Odunga, my husband had divorced me because I was a barren woman of 41 and I have been married for 21 years. I was devastated and confused as a woman of my age until I went online to look for help on how to get my marriage back then I met Dr. Odunga. Within 48 hours of contacting him, my ex husband came back home and pleaded for me to forgive him and take him back after 5 months of divorce. I accepted him back and then I told Dr. Odunga of my bareness for him to help me. He did the spell for fertility and after 48 hours of completing it, my womb was fertile for conceiving. My husband got me pregnant and I gave birth to a baby girl. Presently, I am a mother of a beautiful baby girl and I am happy in my relationship. This is all thanks to Dr. Odunga and his wonderful work. Contact Dr. Odunga Via Whats-App number +2348167159012. Email at:

    It’s hurt when husband told you “I don’t need you in my life anymore.” My husband left me for another woman 3 months ago and ever since then my life have been filled with pains sorrow and heart break because he was my first love whom i have spent my entire life with. A friend of mine told me he saw some testimonies of a spell caster called Priest Salami that he can bring back lovers within some few days, i laugh it out and said i am not interested but because of the love my friend had for me, she consulted the great spell caster on my behalf and to my greatest surprise after 2 days my husband called me for the very first time after three months that he is missing me and that he is so sorry for every thing he made me went through. He came back to me and now we are happy together. I still can’t believe it, because it highly unbelievable.

    I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor Michael and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at and later he gave me his WhatsApp number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Michael is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. I and my husband reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA MICHAEL. I came online to say this: If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.

    With so much in my heart I am here to express myself on how Priest Salami saved my marriage from divorce. Myself and my husband were having some misunderstanding and it was tearing our marriage apart to the extent my husband was seeking a divorce. So I have no option other than to go to the internet to seek a solution to my problem. It was there I came across Priest Salami details and about how he has helped a lot of people by restoring their relationship. I contacted Priest Salami and in less than 48 hours my husband cancelled the divorce papers. Now myself and my husband live together in peace and harmony all thanks to Priest Salami for saving my marriage from breaking up.
