Supportive pampering

bichonnage de soutien

Supportive pampering is for mums whose babies are over 6 months old. During your child’s first year, if you still feel emotionally vulnerable, or you are experiencing postpartum depression, a perinatal bereavement or another problem, you can become a PamperedMama, either for the first time or again.

If you find yourself in this situation, remember that you’re not alone and that we're here to provide you with support and a friendly ear. SuperMamans volunteers, the GiftMamas, will mobilise and bring you a home-cooked meal to support you during this difficult time. If you’d like, the GiftMama can also stay a little while to chat and share some time together.

If your baby blues symptoms continue, we recommend that you contact your main perinatal healthcare provider, such as your gynaecologist or midwife, or your family doctor, who will aid you in getting the help you may need. Additionally, you’ll find links to specialised associations in the useful links.

Organisation of the pampering

It takes about 10 days for us to plan your pampering, from the date on which you inform us of the birth of your baby and confirm your availabilities. If you’d like for your pampering to start quickly, provide us with this information as soon as possible. This way, we’ll be able to get as many volunteers as possible for you!

Allergies and intolerances

When you sign up, please indicate any food allergies and/or foods you must avoid. The GiftMamas will be informed, and they’ll cook their meals in accordance with these requirements. SuperMamans also provides them with recommendations regarding food hygiene and information specific to pregnancy and breastfeeding.*

Pampering programme

You’ll receive your pampering programme with the contact details of each GiftMama who’ll come pamper you. They’ll contact you before coming over, but you can also contact them if necessary.

Welcoming the GiftMamas

We do request that, at a minimum, you come to the door to greet the volunteers, accept their meals and thank them. The GiftMamas provide you with a meal they have cooked for you during their free time.


Out of respect for the GiftMamas who have made a commitment to pamper you, let them know as soon as possible if the programme changes or if you’re unable to have them come over. We ask our volunteers to do the same for you, if something comes up and they’re unable to visit you.

Giving thanks

After the GiftMama, who is acting on an entirely voluntary basis, has provided you with her meal, don’t forget to thank her, ideally in writing. She’s given you the gift of her time, expecting nothing other than a “thank you” from you!
