Valarie shares how her new mom care package from Tenth Moon arrived exactly when she needed it most.

Exactly What I Needed | Valarie | Tenth Moon Mamas

One of our favourite things is hearing the stories of mamas and families who’ve received a new mom care package Tenth Moon Mother Care. This is what it’s all about! Here, Tenth Moon Mama Valarie tells how her care package arrived right when she needed it most.

“I received my Tenth Moon package at a critical time. I had a great pregnancy, but the last few weeks were brutal. I was swollen, tired, and anxious to meet our new bundle of joy. Then, one day, this beautiful and thoughtful care package arrived. My husband purchased a Mama + Baby new mom care package on the advice of a friend who’d been gifted one and it was an instant hit!

As soon as I opened the package, I was greeted by a calming and wonderful scent – I literally just kept opening and closing the box for the aromatherapy benefits! At first, I took a look through the box and thought that some of the items were nice, but that I probably wouldn’t use them. If I knew then what I know now!

I used every single thing and loved them all. When I was hungry, there was a healthy snack. When I needed some soothing, there were herbal teas and witch hazel to calm everything right down. I have since given this gift to other moms-to-be and recommended it to those who know someone who is about to give birth. It was, simply, exactly what I needed.”

Valarie’s advice to new moms:

“Everything is a phase and, whether it’s good or bad, it will pass. And even though it may seem like you’ll never forget those first hours and days, take lots of pictures and write down those moments that are special to you because you will forget. Also, be confident in your own abilities. You are capable of so much more than you know.”
