Here’s our list of postpartum essentials so you can be as ready as you can be after bringing home your baby!



You’ve watched your body grow while it carries your baby, imagining what it’ll be like when you finally meet them. You might have a name picked out, you might even have a preschool picked out, but have you planned for what you need postpartum?

This isn’t a list of gadgets or blankets or robes or diaper baskets.

What moms need for postpartum is actually pretty simple:
She needs support.
She needs rest.
She needs food.
She needs to be sure she’s feeding her baby.
She needs someone to remind her that she’s doing a great job.

None of these items are found in a big box store– so where does a mom go to get the postpartum necessities like these?

BeHerVillage is a gift registry where an expectant mom can register for postpartum support. And just like she might normally ask her friends and family to contribute to her stroller or crib, she can ask them to contribute to her postpartum support.


She can be supported and well rested when she registers for a postpartum doula (read more about what a doula does here!).
She can be nourished when she registers for meal delivery services.
She can be sure she’s feeding her baby when she registers for lactation support.
She can be sure she’s doing a great job when she registers for maternal mental therapy and new moms groups (read more on why new moms groups are THE BEST).

It’s not the baby gear that makes postpartum life better. It’s the support and love that surrounds a new mom while she’s figuring out her new life with her new baby.


BeHerVillage is a gift registry for parents-to-be to register for pregnancy, birth, and postpartum support. Like any other baby registry, family and friends contribute to part of or all of a gift. (Unlike the other registries) The funds that are contributed go directly into the expectant parent’s account to be used when they’re ready and in need of support. Create your free registry at BeHerVillage.com

If you support new mamas you can create a profile at BeHerVillage.com/partners so new parents can put YOU onto their registry.

BeHerVillage is helping parents like you get the funds they need for the support they deserve! Are you having a baby and are looking for support? Create a registry for support today and get gifted funds directly into your bank account to pay for your support team. You deserve this.
