Guest Editor: Daina Walls, Copywriter

I have worked for Destination Maternity as a Copywriter within the Creative Department for over two years. Each day I am amazed by the talent of the people on my team but when they threw me a surprise shower, I was truly blown away!

The theme was a carnival and it was probably the classiest and chicest carnival I have ever been to! There were rustic, old-timey touches, mixed with more modern and whimsical cotton candy bouquets and baskets made to look like hot air balloons. It’s hard to keep emotions in check when you feel like a balloon yourself and you’re pretty much full-term, but I held back the tears the best I could. The décor was incredible, but the gifts were even better! I received adorable clothing, shoes, books, a tutu and toys for my little one, and a nursing pillow and a gift card to get myself a (much-needed) massage!

Preparing to go on maternity leave and leaving your daily routine, including the people you see and work with every day, has made me anxious. However, the shower made me feel so supported and has helped ease the transition for me. Mamas-to-be need the extra love, especially around the last few weeks, and I really cannot put into words how much I was touched by such kindness!
