Def something for constipation; lavender & tea tree oils for baths when home. Was she planning a c-section anyway? If not, then huge knickers (if you are close friends) and some over bump leggings/pj bottoms.
A friend of mine's wife has just had a section at 34 weeks and am going to see her at the weekend. After giving birth myself I've really enjoyed putting together little post-natal "care packages" for people - arnica, lavender oil, etc
Is there anything that people have found particularly good or useful after a section or for a little baby? (4lb I think he is) I was thinking some tiny babygros but not sure whether arnica etc helpful after a section.
