There will be cute onesies galore. (Trust us.)
It’s time to take care of Mama.
Giving birth is kind of a big deal. You’ve created a tiny human! New motherhood is a time when moms need and deserve all the T.L.C. in the world. Listen closely, and any baby will tell you that the best gift you can give them is to take care of their mama.
The Tenth Moon Essentials new mom care package is created to nurture, comfort and support mothers in those wild and unpredictable days after baby arrives. (Goddess knows we need all the help we can get.)
Thoughtfully created with Mama’s needs in mind to soothe the discomforts of childbirth, soften the transition from pregnancy to motherhood and celebrate this remarkable accomplishment!
Tenth Moon Yummy Mama Organic Granola: New moms are hungry. (Growing and birthing a tiny human works up an appetite.) Our granola is tasty any time of the day – perfect for new parents who find themselves awake at all hours. (Think 8 a.m., 4 p.m., 2 a.m.) Our salty-sweet recipe is hearty enough to nibble like trail mix for marathon nursing sessions, cosy in bed. Yummy Mama is made with oats and pecans, both of which promote healthy lactation, plus nutrient-dense pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and coconut. Tenth Moon Mamas describe it best: Addictive.
Tenth Moon Organic Raspberry Leaf Tea: Sit back, relax and enjoy a cuppa. Mums-to-be drink raspberry leaf tea in their final weeks of pregnancy to help increase oxytocin, “the love hormone,” in the body. (Women naturally produce oxytocin labour, which can help to make contractions more efficient. Yes, please!) Postpartum, women drink it to help tone the uterus and balance hormones.
Tenth Moon Herbal Sitz Bath: Swelling. Soreness. Tearing. Stitches. Having a baby leaves mama with seriously tender bits, however we give birth. Our blend of calendula flowers, comfrey leaf, witch hazel bark and other soothing herbs promotes gentle and natural perineum recovery, and can also be used to soothe a c-section incision.
Tenth Moon Lavender Mineral Soak: Looking for a full-body workout? Labour and birth should do the trick! Giving birth and caring for a newborn is hard, physical work. Draw a hot bath and relax, Mama. You need this time. Tenth Moon mineral soak is made with pure magnesium sulphate to soothe aching muscles, plus lavender essential oil and lavender buds for a calming, refreshing soak.
Tenth Moon Organic Coconut Oil: This sweet-smelling oil is perfect for massage before and after baby arrives, including during labour. Pure and natural, this soothing oil can moisturize Mama’s tummy and nipples, as well as baby’s dry hands and feet.
Shoosha Rescue Nipple Balm: Sore nipples are a common reason why mothers stop breastfeeding – ouch! (Expect to spend 8 to 10 hours a day nursing your newborn.) Shoosha’s USDA organic, food-grade salve is packed with chamomile, calendula, sea buckthorn berry oil and cocoa butter to help care for tender nipples. Tenth Moon supports new mothers however they feed their babies. If you can and want to breastfeed, have your nipple balm handy.
I loved my Essentials package! It was such a treat to unpack all the lovely goodies in such pretty packaging. At a time when everyone was bringing us more baby clothes and toys, it felt really special to have something for me, something that was thoughtfully created in recognition of my physical and emotional journey from pregnancy to motherhood. During a time of giant mesh underwear, spit-up soiled clothes, and sweaty, all-night nursing sessions, having these items reminded me to take a moment to take care of myself as well. Clearly, a mama designed these packages knowing exactly what a woman in postpartum needs. Tenth Moon packages are very much a gift to the baby, because what baby wouldn’t want to come into a home where their mother is well cared for?

I bought the Tenth Moon Essentials package for myself with my second child. It is packaged so lovingly and it was so helpful in those first few weeks. Perfect for any new moms! Will be getting this for my expectant friends. Thank you!
