Buy Maternity Care Items & Essentials Online
Welcoming a new baby into the world is a magical journey, but it can also be filled with countless new experiences and challenges for soon-to-be mums. Ensuring the comfort and care of mothers is just as important as that of the newborn, and this is where maternity care items come in.
Maternity items encompass a variety of products designed to support, comfort, and care for mothers during pregnancy and postpartum, and throughout the parenting journey. At Mothercare Singapore, we understand the importance of these elements and aim to provide mothers with a comprehensive selection of quality maternity care items to ease their transition into motherhood.
Must-Have Maternity Care Items for New Mums
From the early days of pregnancy to postpartum, there are a number of maternity care items that can significantly improve the comfort and well-being of new mums and mums-to-be:
• Stretch mark lotions and creams: These skincare products are specifically designed to support the skin's elasticity as it stretches during pregnancy, helping to minimise the appearance of stretch marks. Their moisturising ingredients also help to nourish the skin after childbirth, providing comfort as your body adjusts to its new form.
• Nursing pillows: Whether you plan to breastfeed, bottle feed, or do a combination of both, nursing pillows are indispensable. They help position the baby correctly during feeding time, alleviating strain on mum’s neck, back and arms. They also offer support and comfort, especially during cluster feeds that can continue for hours.
• Breast pads and nipple creams: Your breasts and nipples will feel sore leading up to the birth as well as after your baby’s arrival. Breast pads and nipple creams help soothe and protect sensitive areas, especially if you plan on breastfeeding.
• Maternity pads or towels: Maternity pads are key in the days and weeks after delivery. They are designed to handle the heavy flow of blood and discharge that occurs postpartum, offering better absorption, comfort, and hygiene than regular sanitary pads.
When selecting these items, consider factors such as skin sensitivity, ease of use, comfort, and personal preference. Products with natural and hypoallergenic ingredients can be beneficial for mums with sensitive skin, while ease of use (such as disposability) can make a big difference during those busy early days with a newborn.

Frequently Asked Questions About Maternity Care Items
What are maternity items?
Maternity items are products designed to provide support, comfort, and care for women during pregnancy and after childbirth. These can range from maternity clothing and nursing equipment to skincare products and comfort items, all aimed at easing the motherhood journey even when you reach the ‘fourth trimester’. Mums who want to breastfeed may also need additional breastfeeding essentials after the baby arrives, such as breast pumps and breast shields.
What maternity care items should I pack in my hospital bag for delivery?
For delivery, consider packing maternity care items such as a comfortable robe, cosy socks, nursing bras, breast pads, maternity undergarments, and maternity toiletries. A nursing pillow and nipple cream can also be beneficial for those planning to breastfeed. Don't forget to pack comfortable clothes for both you and your baby to wear home!
What should I put in a maternity care package?
When preparing a maternity care package, focus on items that emphasise comfort for the new mum. Items like stretch mark lotion, body moisturiser, nipple cream, and comfortable clothes or pyjamas can go a long way to helping the mum get used to her new body after childbirth. Soothing self-care items, such as her favourite snacks, a relaxing face mask, or shower scents, can also make thoughtful additions to her daily routine.
