If only I had known about Bird Style Box during my pregnancies (shakes fist at the sky). One of the most frustrating experiences during pregnancy for me was trying to find maternity clothes that were cute, wouldn’t break the bank, and that I could try on without getting too sweaty or falling over in the changing room.

A similar concept to other clothing rental subscriptions but a slightly lower price point – a $50 flat fee per month. Simply add some cute looks to your “closet” and sit back and relax while they select a few items you’ve chosen to send your way. Items can be worn for however long you’d like, or quickly returned so another item can be sent your way. Love it? Buy it at a discount and keep it forever. Perfect for your pregnant bodies or bodies changing after pregnancy. Our full review of it can be found here or you can check them out here.

Price: $50 per month with unlimited exchanges
Shipping: Shipping and returns are free in the US.
Ships to Canada: No.

What is the cheapest pregnancy subscription box?

The Mama Bird Box is the least expensive box that still has a nice variety of 4-6 pampering items that can be used during pregnancy and beyond. The price of each box drops even more if you order a longer subscription and they often have an additional discount on CrateJoy.

What’s the verdict on Pregnancy Subscription Boxes?

It’s pretty easy to get caught up in the busyness of growing a human and preparing for the big life changes that come along with their arrival. A pregnancy subscription box can be a fun way to take care of some of the little things (like skincare and journaling) and one pretty big thing (that’s you!) in the midst of the chaos.

With so many different pregnancy and postpartum products out there, subscription boxes can also help give you a sneak peek into favorites that have been tested and loved by fellow parents. Trying out a single box, or signing up for a “cancel whenever” subscription can be a great way to dip your toes into the subscription box world.
