Maternity suitcase: it’s a birth kit for the mom, too

When you carefully prepare the baby’s delivery bag, the items that are packed for the young mother to use while in the hospital are often relegated to the background. To pamper moms on delivery day and add some comfort to their stay at the hospital, the beautiful brand Francis & Henry offers sets of outfits to slip into your suitcase the big day.

A knitted hat, a cashmere bodysuit, a body in organic cotton: the future mother often takes pleasure in carefully composing a nice new wardrobe for her baby. But in her own suitcase for delivery day, she is usually content to pack a comfy, old t-shirt, often borrowed from the future dad. Polish stylist Aleksandra Zebrowska, mother of two little boys, Francis 7 years old and Henry, 3 years old, was wondering how to pamper young moms during these few important days when they meet their baby for the first time and take their first steps as a mother. Thus, she designed the Francis & Henry boxes.

Francis and Henry

The idea? Outfits specially designed for childbirth, which combine total comfort with beautiful patterns and delicate colors. Among the options is a v-neck dress in natural bamboo cotton, designed for pregnant women and young breastfeeding moms, and a long cardigan in jersey, to wear on a big belly or on the first nights with her baby. The newborns are not left out: the box contains a large bamboo muslin blanket, with delicate prints featuring the brand’s logo, a gentle balloon drawing in black and white.
