NEW TO NURSING

MH BLOG InfoInspoNursing 2018 v1

NURSING STYLES
Our New Mom collection features nursing tops and dresses specifically made for you. With pull-down access, faux wrap tops, and lift-up layers… there’s a tank, cami, tee, blouse, or dress that will get you home from the hospital and back at work after maternity leave ends.

New moms also need all the sleep they can get without complicated nursing clothing or uncomfortable pieces. If you’ve been dreaming away in our maternity pajamas, then chances are you have a style that is already prepared for those mid-night feedings, featuring clip-down straps. Even our maternity sleep sets are made for new moms, with button-down fronts, stretchy V-necks, and underbelly pants that provide comfort for post-delivery bodies.  You can even repurpose your Snoogle as a nursing pillow!

NURSING BRAS
The question we always get is: “When should I buy nursing bras?” The truth is… from the first time you feel and see your breasts grow during pregnancy. Our maternity bras ARE nursing bras. All our maternity bras feature an accessible way to breastfeed or pump. Whether the straps are clip-down or the bra has a pull-over front, they all remain discreet and comfortable. Investing early on and finding the right fit will pay off for the rest of your trimesters, straight into motherhood and nursing.

NURSING ACCESSORIES
We carry a full range of nursing accessories to help you transition into motherhood. Try our nursing scarves and cover-ups for discreet breastfeeding to keep busy moms on the move. There are also nipple balms and nursing lotions to help soothe and smooth sore bodies. With nursing pads, a hands-free bra for efficient pumping, as well as diaper bags to throw everything in… we want to be your one-stop-shop for everything motherhood related. It is our name after all!

BOUNCEBACK COLLECTION
This postpartum line includes post-pregnancy leggings, denim and pants and features two different compression belly panels that aid in helping new moms rediscover their pre-pregnancy bellies, possibly even quicker than they would without them!

Unlike girdles and other full post-pregnancy support bands, the BOUNCEBACK panel is sewn directly on to the pants so there is no extra bulk, fuss, or discomfort. We offer two different styles: the Power Mesh Band, designed to sit lower on your waist and provide medium compression, and the Seamless Compression Tube, which has a higher rise and stronger compression. In addition to providing a seamless and smooth effect under clothing, they help hold in your post-pregnancy belly with light pressure, ensuring you feel in control and confident. They are an easy and effortless way for you to feel like yourself again. You aren’t just bouncing back, but rather bouncing forward to being the best new mom and new you!

TRIP TO THE TROPICS

MH BLOG Tropical SHOWER 2018 v1

Take your baby shower on vacation with a tropical themed party! Think bright colors, sweet fruit drinks, and a lot of fun with family and friends. It’ll be a trip!

Start with the style star: a coral colored ruffled maternity dress with everything going for it. Like its name suggests, there’s the top ruffle cascading over the front and back, a high halter style neckline, exposed shoulders, plus a keyhole back design, all crafted from smooth and sleekly stretchy lightweight fabric. It’s summer in a dress.

Next, make sure the décor transports you and your guests. This is island time, where pineapples are everywhere, flamingos are abundant and beautiful plants sprout all over. We’re thinking palms, succulents, and lots of warm-weather fruit to add natural color to the event.

Finish with the food. Keep everything light, sweet, and color coded! Serve it all on the Meri Meri striped plates with scalloped gold edges. Pretty perfect, they come in pink and blue too! Don’t forget the cups, the napkins, the cupcake wrappers… even confetti poppers, because we’ve got them too!

Show us how you’re trending tropical for your shower with #thisisgoingtobefun @motherhoodmaternity.

GORGEOUS GARDEN GAL SHOWER

MH BLOG GARDEN SHOWER 2018 TOP v1

 

Our April showers are still raining down on you with the newest theme: garden party! When we think spring, we think flowers, warm weather, and blue skies! We put it all together for a baby shower that is all about growing and glowing!

We love this belted chambray maternity shirt dress for this occasion. Not only is it classic, springy, and just downright cute… it is perfect for post-pregnancy too, easily adjustable with the belt, as well as nursing accessible with the buttons. The clean solid colored dress allows you to brighten up your look with fun shoes and accessories. If you’re having a boy, how perfect is this on its own? Expecting a girl? Little pink flats or sneaks have met their new best friend.

If you’re planning the party, let us take care of the plates and cups. We sell these adorable place settings from Meri Meri.  Need a center piece? How about a cute watering can filled with confetti and some gardening tools?! Need a thank you gift? Baby succulents work wonders as party favors.  This theme has so many roots. So, use this post as inspiration and let your creativity blossom and grow. Then, show us your garden party @motherhoodmaternity with #thisisgoingtobefun

 

A CITY GAL SHOWER FEATURING MIMI MATERNITY

MH BLOG NY MIMI SHOWER 2018 v2

Our MiMi mama is cosmopolitan, a city dweller, a lover of street style and Instagram-worthy outfits. A shower themed to the Big Apple and all things classic New York seems like the perfect fit!

Dress up your party in décor that is black and white and red [apple] all over. And for the mama-to-be, there’s nothing more quintessential NYC than a little black dress. Our MiMi lace maternity dress is party perfection; it’s textured, off the shoulder, stretchy, soft and structured with a little ruffle. Feminine, comfortable, a bit flirty, everything to make you feel like the life of the party.

With New York landmarks, picture props and signs… it looks like all streets lead to a memorable shower. You don’t have to be a city slicker to get in on the fun and fashion. Which city and town do you [and your bump] represent?  Let us know with #MiMiMama #MiMiMaternity @MiMiMaternity.

THE GIFT GUIDE

 

MH BLOG AprilShowerGiftGuide 2018 v1.jpg

When it comes to baby showers, we love striking a balance in our gifting – something for baby, of course, but also a little something for the mama-to-be. We have created a lust-worthy list of items for both! The options are endless. Oh, and if you can’t decide… give the gift of choice with a seasonal and themed e-gift card or physical gift card too.

Let’s start with gifts for her: Safe, effective skincare made for bodies that are working hard seems like a necessary little luxury. We love brands like basq NYC, Bella B and Belli Beauty. They’ve got the body covered, literally from head to toe with stretch mark creams, tummy butters, and nipple balms for mama. Pair some skincare with a pajama set for an unexpected gift to make her feel pampered and pretty.

Gifts for baby range from adorable to practical: Both the WubbaNub and Pop Pacifier have our hearts. The first will surely be your baby’s new best friend with its friendly and cuddly stuffed animal attached while the Pop Pacifier will surely be yours! The nipple will fold inside the base, so that it never hits the ground, eliminating the constant sanitizing every time it falls to the floor.  And it’s 100% silicone is free from phthalates, lead, latex, bpa and pvc. You can shop all baby gifts here as well.

For a few “just because” gifts: Shop milestone markers like the blocks shown, as well as blankets and stickers so your mama-to-be can document every cute moment to come her way. Or prepare her for motherhood with any of our nursing items and accessories. If she doesn’t already have one, the Snoogle is a must for any mom-to-be hoping to get some beauty sleep before baby. And of course we love to gift diaper bags to ensure she’s got everything she needs for days out with baby. Happy shopping!

APRIL SHOWERS

MH BLOG Shower Dress 2018 v2

Okay, so not only is today Easter AND April Fool’s Day… it’s also the very first day of the month! April is all about SHOWERS, SHOWERS, SHOWERS. Throughout the month we are going to be giving major baby shower inspo, including themes, style suggestions, and Instagram-worthy snap shots. To kick off the April showers, we got all caught up in a floral frenzy. The perennial print is a forever favorite, but certainly appropriate for spring!

We’ve got the botanic beauty with a deep black floral maxi. And a dress to contrast that with light and bright blooms, our Empire Seam Maternity Maxi Dress for the garden party girl.

To top off a shower style, we have two pale and pretty prints: the halter maternity top with baby blue buds and the floral flutter sleeve maternity top.

Shop all these plus more forget me not flowered fashions and keep coming back for a month of showers, showers, showers! Tag us in your baby shower look with #thisisgoingotobefun @motherhoodmaternity!

HOW SWEET IT IS

MH BLOG EasterCandyInspired 2018 v1

Need some Easter outfit inspo? Combine your candy cravings with your clothes! It makes for an actual sweet pairing.

Wrap yourself up in something silky and smooth like the charmeuse-blend belted maternity shirt dress. The color is a greyish-purple, as beautiful and mysterious as dyed and dipped eggs.

The flutter sleeve maternity top is sprinkled with tiny florets. It’s the epitome of spring with a fresh creamy color behind pinkish, peachy and bluish buds. Ruffled neckline and an above-the-bump tie belt give it a feminine touch that is perfect for any Easter activity.

We couldn’t possibly forget about the candy that defines the holiday. The marshmallow chicks are almost synonymous with Easter! Throw on a graphic maternity tee, add a pair of our maternity jeans, and you’re done. Even if you don’t like the candy, there’s no way to not love this shirt.

Show us your candy and clothing matchups. #thisisgoingtobefun @motherhoodmaternity

SNAP SHOT OF SPRING

MH BLOG Polaroids 2018 v1

Oh spring, we can almost feel you! With five days left before the warmer months come marching in, we wanted to bask in the golden glow of dreaming about the season ahead.

While shooting on location we snapped Polaroid pictures as the professionals did their jobs. It reminds us that behind each style there’s a story to be told. What we love about spring, in general, is the way it causes all things on earth to refresh. From the trees, to the animals’ return, there’s a liveliness in the air. You can see this in the new arrivals of styles.

The fabrics become lighter, flowing, less textured and more breathable. They command movement, yet have a relaxed feel too. In a world of posting, snapping and sharing… you need maternity clothes that look good through any lens.  And these definitely do.

GENDER REVEAL: WHAT’S AT THE END OF OUR RAINBOW?

MH BLOG GR RAINBOW v1

Lucky you ☘️ you get to find out the sex of your baby around St. Patrick’s Day!  We are green with envy. How charmed you are! Okay, okay— we’ll give the puns a rest. But seriously, what a fun month to find out the good news and to plan a gender reveal. Loving themes and holidays, we knew we had to take advantage of everything St. Paddy’s. We’re only missing a Leprechaun…

The rainbow was hand made by us, an editor and a social media specialist. In other words, it was easy! We used paper streamers in the traditional colors of the rainbow, with the inclusion of pink, because why not? The white balloons became the clouds and a green bucket was transformed into a pot of gold. Under a layer of gold streamers we placed blue coins, ready to be tipped and revealed. We chose to create a photo shoot around the rainbow, but this can seamlessly become the centerpiece of a party, where guests are there to participate in the reveal!

Need a look for said party? Be one and done with the best-selling, everyone’s favorite, top-rated maternity overalls. Up the fun factor with a graphic maternity tee like this Mom’s Lucky Charm one.  No worries, you’ll shamrock any look. 😉

 

LUCKY LOOKS – ST. PADDY’S DAY TEES

MH BLOG St. Paddy's 2018 v1

Let’s get graphic. These tees are the cutest clothes, and they’re so photogenic! We love working with graphic maternity tees, because they’re fun fashion that aren’t meant to be taken too seriously. All of our graphic tees get attention, but the St. Patrick’s Day ones have a certain charm.

St. Paddy’s Day falls on a Saturday this year. The weekend is the best time to top the bump with a shirt that is ready to be seen. They’re perfect for posting; plus, they are always ready to make the reveal. (Look out for an upcoming post on a very lucky gender reveal, with one of these tees as the star!)

You don’t need to be Irish to [sham]rock a lucky look! How do you go graphic? Show us your best materniTEE style using #thisisgoingtobefun @motherhoodhoodmaternity.
