Pregnancy can be HARD
Pregnancy is such a special time in a woman’s life. At the same time, how we feel varies greatly from woman to woman. That is why mom-to-be needs extra pampering, and pregnancy subscription boxes from Crate Joy is a wonderful option!
Some woman’s pregnancies fly by and they barely notice any symptoms, others feel so sick they start asking themselves if it’s going to be worth doing it all over again. I was just speaking to a close friend and she shared that she felt major depression while pregnant which is not totally uncommon with hormonal changes occurring.
Regardless of what type of pregnancy, receiving a box that pampers you is such a treat. It gets everyone excited about the soon to come bundle of joy and fuels that burning nesting sensation many moms get.
I would have totally done this if I knew about subscriptions boxes back in 2018 when I was pregnant.
Why pick CrateJoy’s Subscription Boxes
CrateJoy is a platform for other companies to showcase and sell their subscription boxes. Most boxes are small businesses that put their heart and soul into catering a beautiful and meaningful experiences for their clients. It is similar to Etsy, in that you find uniquely themed products for everyone in your life.
CrateJoy has innumerable subscription boxes for mom-hood. From trying to conceive, to pregnancy, postpartum and beyond. I can spend hours just skimming through their platform.
The nice thing about a subscription box rather than purchasing objects singularly is the element of surprise. You never know exactly what will be in each box which makes opening it exciting.
Any box can be purchased as a stand a lone box as well. You will never be asked to sign a contract and you can cancel anytime.
