In brief: Yes, but....
Perhaps giving the mom of a new baby the gift of your time might be even better. If you watch her child(ren) for just an hour or two, she can go for a walk, relax, shop.
That often is enough so she could return refreshed to enjoy her baby. In addition, she might come back with renewed commitment to do kegels even without a device.

In brief: No, but nice thought
The otc kegel exercises are not necessarily the right way to do kegels.
But encouraging her to pay attention to pelvic floor health is a great idea. Finding a local pelvic floor pt, would be a great gift.
