10 Romantic Valentine’s Day Ideas for the Pregnant Mom – Plumtree Baby

10 Romantic Valentine’s Day Ideas for the Pregnant Mom

If you are pregnant this Valentine's Day, do something special to honor your love for your partner and your unborn baby. When you are relaxed, and feeling loved by and connected with your partner, oxytocin (the hormone responsible for labor contractions) flows freely in your body. Valentine’s Day offers the perfect day to totally focus on your love for each other and create a relaxing environment, which will be enjoyable and just might make it more likely that you will go into labor (if you are full term).

  1. Write a love letter or poem to your unborn baby telling him how much you love him and are looking forward to meeting him soon.
  2. Take a walk with your partner and talk about what your hopes and dreams are for your baby.
  3. Take a long bath and sprinkle flower petals in the water. Add candlelight and your favorite aromatherapy to set the mood. Your partner can join you if your tub is big enough for three!
  4. Toast your love with a “mocktail” or sparkling juice. 
  5. Treat yourself (and your partner) to a pedicure, manicure, massage or other relaxing “spa” service.
  6. Make a Valentine’s card for your partner and tell him all of the things you love about him and are thankful for, including his soon-to-be role as a dad.
  7. Give each other massages and if your due date has passed, ask your partner to focus on your back, hands and feet where acupressure points exist that might help get labor started.
  8. Do a maternity photo shoot (or use your ultrasound photo) and frame a picture to give to your partner.
  9. Curl up by a fireplace, listen to your favorite music and enjoy this time together before baby arrives.
  10. Be intimate. The oxytocin released during intimacy might just bring on labor.

i just finished my training course toward becoming a certified and learned so many tools to use in my doula bag! My favorite was the rebozo and the massage tools

I like having honey sticks available and love the rebozo.

While not every woman is open to vocalizing, many seem to relax and open up more when encouraged to make low, labor moaning noises….also known as the “Mother Song” in other cultures! Relaxation does not always equal quiet. :)

i love my knuckle messagers :)

I love all of your materials. They are so professional looking. This comfort measures tool kit is fantastic. I would love to share this with my birthing couples.

I teach a comfort measures class in my community – the best comfort measures are hydrotherapy and hot/cold packs!
