A few weeks ago, my little sister Molly asked me what a first-time mother might need after she gives birth. Molly's friend was expecting, and she wanted to make a helpful gesture but didn't want to spend too much money. So we came up with four easy, do-it-yourself projects for a postpartum care package.
First, we made a microwaveable heating pad. This can be especially useful for easing cramps, back pain, headaches, and muscle aches. It's also a great tool for pain relief during labor.
We made this in about 20 minutes, and all we needed was some fabric and a bag of rice.
