5 warmhearted gifts sure to delight your pregnant coworker

Having a colleague that is pregnant can fill the office with an incredible amount of anticipation. For the new mom-to-be, balancing the responsibilities of work and home can be a very real struggle. With pregnancy comes unimaginable joy and excitement, but there are still deadlines to be met and tasks to be done. One way to take a little pressure off mom is to show her how much you care by hosting a baby shower after hours. That gives everyone a chance to switch off from work and focus on that glorious growing belly and also helps to provide many of the items necessary to care for a newborn. We’ve put together a list of thoughtful items for the new mom-to-be including some things to make pregnancy easier and more comfortable for her and some items to help care for that new bundle of joy.

Many women choose to work during pregnancy. The workplace challenges that accompany pregnancy can be overcome most of the time as long as mom remembers to listen to her body. As her coworker, there are lots of things you can do at work to let her know that you’re there for her. Maybe you could start her car on chilly winter evenings, keep the break room stocked with healthy snacks, or suggest taking small breaks during long meetings so she can get up and move around. When it’s time for her office baby shower, these thoughtful items can show her how much everyone at the office cares about her. They are sure to delight her and make this special time feel a little less overwhelming.
