How To Create A Custom Service On Your BeHerVillage Registry

The BeHerVillage registry is one where expectant parents can find and register for support and self-care services for pregnancy, birth and postpartum. They can search for specific services or providers, or browse through the registry guide for inspo on services they might not have known about. 

Besides the focus on wellness and the ultimate flexibility of the BeHerVillage registry, another great quality is that you can completely customize a service if you don’t see it on our registry.

These are services that might be beneficial for a new or expectant mom, but aren’t directly related and therefore aren’t creating partner profiles in the BeHerVillage Registry Guide

Here are some examples of custom services you might want to consider adding to your registry:


  1. Babysitters, camps or classes for your older kids. Preparing for a second or third baby means preparing your entire family and crew of kiddos. Of course you’ll want to spend time together as a family, but you also might need some bonding (and resting) time with just you and your baby. Planning for your older kiddos to have fun activities lined up and paid for will help you get the rest you need while keeping your big kids entertained. Creating a custom service to put babysitters, camps or kid classes on your BeHerVillage registry allows you to collect the funds to have on hand for when you need them. It’s unlikely that your local camp or neighborhood babysitter has created a service on the BeHerVillage Registry Guide, so creating a custom service helps you let your generous gift givers know what you need.
  1. Self-care services. Think of the self-care services you use in your life that make you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and more like yourself. Maybe it’s getting your nails done at your favorite salon, maybe it’s a facial, maybe it’s getting your hair done or maybe it’s taking a pottery class. Self-care services like these ones who aren’t totally dedicated to pregnant and postpartum moms, are a great reason to create a custom service. It’s unlikely you’ll find classes for the art studio or hair salon on the BeHerVillage registry, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t register for the self-care services that you know will help you feel like a person as you grow, birth and care for your new baby.
  1. Groceries, housekeeping, and other home services. As you prepare for the arrival of your new baby, consider the entire household's needs during this significant transition. It's about creating a supportive environment that allows you to focus on bonding with your newborn while ensuring the household runs smoothly. Imagine not worrying about meal planning, grocery shopping, or keeping the house tidy during those first few weeks with your baby. By adding groceries, housekeeping, and other essential home services to your BeHerVillage registry, you can ensure these tasks are taken care of so you can rest and bond with your baby. Like in the other examples we gave, it’s unlikely that your favorite grocery store or cleaning company has partnered with BeHerVillage. Creating a custom service will let your loved ones know exactly what kind of support will be most helpful to you and your family.
