A heart-rate monitor and listening device that can be used at home and on the go to connect with the baby. If the mom to be doesn’t already have one, the Neeva doppler is a must-have! It’s super easy to use, the mother simply applies ultrasound gel onto her belly and uses the probe to detect the heartbeat.
She’ll be able to hear the heartbeat in the comfort of her home, involve family and friends (because she likely wasn’t able to have everyone in her first ultrasound appointment) and have peace of mind. Most mothers use the doppler as a way to check to make sure that everything is okay.

#5 Memory Foam Slippers
For pregnant women that are carrying all this extra weight on their body, having structured and supportive footwear during the day is critical. At night, when they come home from work, and when they’re around the house, it’s orthopedically better for women to wear slippers. These ones are our favorite because they’re soft, cushioned, and feel like a warm hug for the toes.
