    10. La Belle Bump Gift Card

        • Our gift cards let you choose a package that’s right for you and her. When the mom-to-be signs up, she’ll have a chance to create her own account and share her style preferences, so we can curate a box personalized for her.
        • If something doesn’t fit correctly, she can send it back to us and we’ll ship a new style right away. She can exchange any number of items whenever she wants something different. We carry stylish, high quality brands she’ll love, such as Ingrid & Isabel, Nom Maternity, Ripe and more in pre-pregnancy sizes 0-14.

    All of these items will aid in peace of mind and healing for the expecting mama in your life. Most gifts around this time are baby focused, let’s change the narrative to taking care of each other, too.

    We are here to serve mamas and those aiming to empower them! If you have an item you think we should add to the list or any questions at all reach out to us
