Hegen’s breast pumps and accessories are the best gifts for mums-to-be and loved ones. For mothers who have to pump multiple times a day and for extended period of times – electric pumps are a blessing because they require less physical effort than manual pumps. Choose the Hegen PCTO™ Electric Breast Pump or Hegen Manual Breast Pump to help lactating mothers express milk efficiently. The electric option has an additional kneading massage feature and is the world’s first relaxation breast pump.
Feeding bottles are essential for babies and toddlers. Poorly designed bottles can leak milk, causing messes and wasting precious milk. Gift a new mum the Hegen PCTO™ Basic Start Kit PPSU which includes feeding bottles of different sizes and with different teats. Hegen PCTO Feeding Bottles feature revolutionary no-screw thread one-handed closure for hassle-free handling. Included storage lids allow for airtight storage of the milk.

Customised Food Hamper
Does the new mummy love some Oreos with milk now and again? Or maybe she’s always got her fridge well-stocked with fruits?
Think about customising a food hamper just for her because new mummies need all the food they can get – bonus points for added health benefits, and even more bonus points for tastiness!
Remember, cookies don’t have to be lactation cookies, and tea doesn’t have to be lactation tea; a naughty treat here and there never hurt anyone!
Think about what mummy has always liked before baby came along – she’d really appreciate being at the heart of your intentions.
Eu Yan Sang Mommy Goodness Hamper Box

Postnatal Massage Session
We all know how exhausting mothering newborns can be. Gift a loving touch to mums with a prenatal or postnatal massage session.

Consequently postnatal massage repositions the uterus, improves lactation and includes a tummy binding.
A jamu massage is all about restoring a mother’s body after pregnancy and childbirth. Specially geared toward postnatal mummies, a Jamu massage involves massaging the body with specially formulated herbs, oils and hot stones to improve blood circulation.
It not only helps get the new mummy’s internal organs back into place gently, it also works wonders for breastfeeding by relieving engorgement and clearing blocked ducts.
