To celebrate the launch of the Ergobaby Embrace Cozy Newborn Carrier, we’ve put together a fourth trimester prize package to nurture mama during those first weeks postpartum.
Motherhood starts here. Real, raw and powerful. No matter how much preparation you do during your pregnancy or even before conception, it’s not really real until baby is here, and you start to feel the magnitude of the identity shift into the role of mother. Nurture yourself and babe during this incredible transformation. With the birth of a baby, also comes the birth of a mother. We invite you to honor this time, often referred to as “the fourth trimester” or “the first 40 days.”
The focus on the fourth trimester is not only nurturing the newborn baby but also the postpartum care and mental health of the healing mother. It’s as much an emotional and spiritual change as it is physical, and to help women make this transition as seamlessly and gracefully as possible, we’ve partnered with a few of our favorite brands to put together a truly nurturing and healing bundle.
Nurture Yourself and Babe with the Embrace Motherhood Prize Bundle
Ergobaby Embrace Cozy Newborn Carrier, Nursing pillow and swaddler
For 9 months, the only home baby knows is the warm comfort of mama’s body.
In the extraordinary days and weeks after birth, baby still wants and needs to be snuggled in close, reassured by the steady beat of your heart. We created the Ergobaby Embrace especially for this golden bonding time, when the outside world fades away and the new journey of parenthood begins.
Designed with the softest knit fabric perfect for cradling your newborn, and the structured support of a carrier, our newest offering keeps you wrapped in the sweetest embrace while you discover your new rhythm together.
Cozy up to a relaxed nursing experience. Our firm nursing pillow supports your baby comfortably and helps to keep you from slouching. To embrace those sleepless nights, the Ergobaby Swaddler is the key to more peaceful sleep for you and baby.
