What Do You Get Your Wife in the First Trimester

The gift of new life is irreplaceable, whether it’s a friend, family or loved one that has given birth, or is expecting, you want to commemorate and celebrate their new bundle of joy.

Sometimes it can be difficult to know what exactly to get for them, maybe a card isn’t enough, but, a pregnancy hamper presents a perfect choice. In this blog, we at Mama Jewels will be answering the question “What do you get your wife in the first trimester?”

A thoughtful present with a range of options suitable for anybody, we will tell you a bit more about our hampers, along with any other information you may need.

Pregnancy rates in the UK

What Do You Get Your Wife in the First Trimester

In 2022 the number of viable pregnancies (birth rate) per 1000 women was 11.32 while in 2021 the rate was 0.48% higher with 11.37 viable pregnancies per 1000 women. This shows a decrease in the birth rate.

However, the pregnancy rate tells a different story with an increase from the previous year of 0.06%. In 2022 the pregnancy rate was 1.753 children per woman while in 2021 this read as 1.752.

With the infant mortality rate in constant decline, we can assume that the reason the birth rate is higher is that, unlike the fertility rate, it accounts for women of all ages. The fertility rate only takes into account women aged between 15 and 44.

The higher birth rate includes women who choose to give birth when they are older than 44 and the underage pregnancies that have been reported.

What is a trimester?

The length of pregnancy is usually 9 months, and a trimester is a period of three months. So the term ‘first trimester’ makes referral to the first three months of pregnancy and so on.

As the mother transitions through the trimesters, the size of the baby may make the mother struggle to do normal tasks, or just generally feel uncomfortable, as well as manifesting cravings etc.

With that in mind, our pregnancy hampers contain items for the mother to feel pampered, and relaxed, easing their mind and body whilst holding the gift of new life within them.

What is a hamper?

A baby hamper is a range of gifts specially selected for a newborn or their mother.

Items can range from clothing, toys and dolls, bibs and swaddle blankets, and even skincare items or bibs. The range is large, check out our blog for more information on gifts to include in baby hampers.

What should I avoid when it comes to baby hampers?

  • There are some parents who are very adamant that they do not want their baby to use a dummy or pacifier. Try and gauge the parent’s view on this if you are surprising them with a gift.
  • Buy gender-neutral baby gifts if the expectant parents haven’t yet shared the baby’s gender or intend to raise the child as gender-neutral.
  • A newborn baby’s skin is very sensitive, so any skincare or bath products should be free from toxic chemicals and should not irritate the baby’s skin.
  • There is no need to gift bedding items such as heavy blankets, pillows or duvets for a newborn; these put the baby at risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), so they should never be placed inside a cot or Moses basket.
  • If you are gifting a second-hand item, make sure it is safe, as used items may present a danger for a newborn baby.

An example of this is a used car seat that hasn’t been stored correctly or cleaned since it was last used, this lack of cleaning can lead to a buildup of dust and mould which can be harmful to anyone, especially newborns.
