Flowers for New Moms: Best Practices and Top Sellers

Having a baby is probably one, if not the most, magical moment in a person’s life.

Not only is it anticipated by would-be moms, but also family members, friends, and colleagues.

Everybody gets to share the happiness that each new bundle of joy brings. However, welcoming a newborn is as challenging as it is exciting.

It’s blissful right from the beginning, but as the weeks progress, parents, especially the moms, will experience the difficulties of parenthood. The people who care about her must find ways to show her support.

And to cheer on moms and help them embrace motherhood, why not spoil them with gorgeous flowers?

What we have for you are some tips on gifting flowers for new moms and recommended flower arrangements you can easily order online. 

Where to send flowers?

It’s common to send flowers to moms in the hospital. However, it is best to send them to their homes.

Although seeing fresh flowers can help postpartum moms recover and relieve their stress and pain, overwhelming them with gifts can cause them more stress. Also, keep in mind that the new parents have to carry the baby and baby stuff home. And so the last thing we want to do is to cause them additional burden by giving them more items to bring home.

Now, if you really want to be one of the first to give them bouquets, you must contact the hospital first to inquire about their policies about bringing flowers.

Some institutions don’t allow visitors to bring floral arrangements as they might cause allergic reactions to other patients.

When should I send flowers? 

You might wonder when is the best time to send flowers for a new baby.

Most will probably think that it’s best to send flowers as soon as the baby is born to congratulate the new mom. However, moms are pretty preoccupied at this stage since they’re still recovering from labor or surgery and have to take care of their babies at the same time. Because of this, she may not be able to appreciate your gift fully.

That’s why it’s best to wait a week or two before you send her flowers. By that time, the mom and her baby had both settled down.

Sending her flowers on the second week can help new moms cope better too. During this time, it’s most likely that she and her husband are both starting to lose sleep and probably getting exhausted juggling work with family. Your gesture can mean a lot to the couple and the moms, most especially. 

What if you don’t know the gender? 

Some parents choose to wait to find out the gender until the baby is born. They may believe that it’s one of life’s precious mysteries, making pregnancy and giving birth more exciting.

On your end, as a gift-giver, you might feel at a loss when choosing flower bouquets. Traditionally, pink is assigned for baby girls while blue is for baby boys.

But fret not if you’re not aware of the sex of the baby. Many shops create gender-neutral new baby flower arrangements. Cream, yellow, or a mix of pastel-colored blooms are usually used for these bouquets. 

Is it okay to send flowers long after the baby is born?

Yes, you may, and you probably should.

As mentioned earlier, new moms have a lot of things going on with their lives on the first few days after delivery. They’re taking care of a new life that requires constant attention, plus their bodies need to recover from childbirth.

In addition to this, getting loads of flowers (although touching) can cause them unnecessary headaches. They need to find a vase, arrange it, and later on tend to them, which ultimately adds to their long list of tasks.

You can send new moms flowers when you feel like they need someone to cheer them up at challenging times.

Now that we have brushed up some useful tips on giving new moms flowers, we have a list of some of the bestselling baby-mom bouquets.
