April showers may bring May flowers, but March brings SPRING! So, we want to celebrate the start of the new season with maternity dresses that are not only shower ready, but are perfect for your gender reveal (check out those blue and pink prints), are eggcelent for Easter (yes, we went there) and meet the dress code for that upcoming wedding.
We want to highlight the textured lace overlay of the first maternity dress, which is just blossoming with pink and blue buds. We love the above-the-bump belt, which makes for a form-flattering silhouette. If flowers are just not your scene [gasp!], we have this beauty in a gorgeous shade of green too.
The second maternity dress is garden party perfection. This maternity maxi has a surplice neckline, giving a wrap-top effect, plus an empire waistline, which our pregnant customers rely on time and time again for comfort, fit and its versatility to last way past pregnancy. Super slinky and soft material is why we love it too. To shop all the floral fashion, click here. Welcome to spring!

Depending on where you live, you may be soaking up the sun or shoveling the snow. The start of spring is fickle, which is why transitional maternity styles are the most essential. No matter what the skies are doing in your area, you can still be a FASHION-FORWARD force of nature!
The classic leggings and tee pairing is an actual live-in look. You can get up, go for your morning walk (even if you need to use the treadmill because of ice!), throw on a maternity cardigan and head to brunch. These maternity leggings are fresh in floral for spring, and the crochet pocket maternity tee is channeling warm weather in a pretty pop of coral-pink.
The not so basic maternity basics are light enough to be layered over, can be dressed up or down and worn with virtually any shoe: boots, flats, sneaks and flip flops too. Get ready for some fresh air, a warm breeze or even a cool burst of wind, because with your new glow and your new clothes you are truly a natural beauty.

The thing we like about our pajamas, you know besides the unbelievable softness, stretch and comfort, is that they can be used way past the bump stage and right into feeding or cuddling your new baby stage. We call our maternity sleepwear, nursing sleepwear, because we know that pregnancy really lasts “four trimesters.” As contradictory as that sounds, those first three months are an extension of pregnancy… just with a living, breathing being.
Our newest sleepwear is perfect to show you while rounding out our Week of Sleep. These maternity pajama pants and nursing nightgown are both featured in our fresh floral print. We paired the bottoms with the “I Love You More Than Sleep” maternity and nursing sleep shirt and topped our best-selling nightgown with our light pink nursing robe.
All pieces are seasonally transitional, trimester transitional, as well as interchangeable with each other. We hope you are sleeping like an actual BUMP on a log, but if not, we then hope this past week has given you some tips, styles and products to consider for making every night a good night. So, here’s to happy days and restful nights!

Now is the time of year when we spring ahead by adjusting our clocks. You may lose an hour of sleep (check out our Snoogle post and look for our maternity sleepwear post to ensure you get some good ZZZs regardless), but the sun stays out longer and goes down later.
Therefore, we are bringing you some styles filled with bright colors, transitional sleeves and lighter fabrics to make you get out and about, while letting your glow be the true source of light.
You can shop the maternity top featured OR shop all our new light-loving maternity styles now that spring has almost, unofficially, practically sprung; just click here. Remember to check back for our next post completing the Week of Sleep!

Have you met the Snoogle yet? It may look like your ordinary body pillow, but let us break this down for you. It’s the MOTHER of all maternity pillows. Take it from me, an actual person, the pillow is worth it.
I recently had a baby and when I was pregnant I received my Snoogle from my husband who wanted to treat me with a gift; that night was the first night in MONTHS that I had gotten any sleep at all! From then on I used it every night. Then, after I gave birth, I decided to nurse my daughter. I did have the Boppy pillow, which I also love, but the Snoogle is softer and can be manipulated, curved and propped both behind your back and your stomach. Thus, it became my go-to for nursing too. For the next few months I continued to use the Snoogle post-partum for sleep, because my body was healing. (It’s easy to clean, because of the removable covers.) I cannot speak for those who have had a C-section, but I can imagine it also affording some support for those recovering from the surgery.
It really is a great investment! If you don’t want to take my word for it, then take some other real expecting women’s words of wisdom (over 200 reviews!) Here’s to kicking off our Week of Sleep with dreamy items and dreamier savings. See below!
So, if you are reading this blog from Friday, March 10, 2017 through Sunday, March 12, 2017 we are running a special: $20 off the Snoogle Total Body Pillow! Text MHSNOOGLE to 40679 to receive a special coupon* to be used in stores.

Remember when you used to go out and celebrate this holiday, sometimes even on spring break? Don’t be green with envy; you can still have fun… and it all starts with a cute maternity tee.
Besides being a conversation starter, you can use this maternity top as a way to share the good news that you’re pregnant. “Mom’s Lucky Charm” says it all!

“Ice cream is exquisite – what a pity it isn’t illegal.” – Voltaire
Well then lock us up, because we are all about the cold, creamy craving! Everyone thinks Valentine’s Day is strictly for chocolate, and we don’t disagree, but we also would like to bring attention to another sweet treat: ice cream! So many flavors, so many favorites, so many ways to eat it. Our love song can go on and on, but we want you to tell us your pregnancy cravings. Head on over to our Instagram and use #shareyourcravings – we want to know what creamy, crunchy, salty or sweet you MUST eat! And, keep on reading to see what our expecting mamas here have a hunger for. Happy Valentine’s Day! Love, Motherhood.
Our Global Sourcing Manager, Kristen Mullarkey, is craving ice cream. Besides the obvious reasons, you know sugary, creamy goodness… it’s helping to soothe her pregnancy heartburn!
Our Senior Buyer for Motherhood, Jillian O’Hara, is craving ice cream and soft pretzels.
Our Assistant Manager of U.S. Partner Businesses, Carolyn Hanif, is craving cereal and milk, especially Frosted Flakes!

The dark days of winter give east coasters major summer envy, while the west coasters reach for the beach and the middle of the country craves the coastal breeze. If you can’t set sail on the sea, test the waters with these mid-winter nods to nautical!
Maternity clothing already breaks bounds when it comes to flattering your shape, because most styles are made to accentuate the bump. So remember when shopping, stripes are slimming. We repeat: stripes are slimming. So many mamas shy away from the stripe, especially horizontal ones, but this sweater is lightweight, still warm enough for the chill in the air, and cute as a button — literally, because it is ribbed with buttons.
In the warmer months we preach the LWD, aka the Little White Dress, as the fresher take on the LBD. What about in the cooler months? Shake it up with a new LBD — Little Blue Dress. The deep tone of navy is of course flattering, much in the way black is; it’s still sophisticated, yet playful and versatile for work to weekend wear. This maternity dress features pretty pleats and a flowing fit.
To stay in the blue family, we top off our list, well… with a top. Navy is a neutral that plays well with others blues, so this flutter sleeve maternity blouse looks amazing with jeans, as well as more office-ready pants. Not into ruffles? Don’t feel blue… (sorry for the pun!) we have more navy maternity blouses you’ll love.
In a boat, on land, at work- these are the new waves of nautical maternity looks.

What does Valentine’s Day mean to you? At some point it may have meant dinner out, dancing and maybe a glass of wine. So what about this year? You’re pregnant, which means it’s alright to use that beautiful bump as a reason to order in, snuggle on the couch and sip a little ginger tea. It isn’t about sacrificing; it’s about indulging.
What is there not to love about maternity sleepwear that is made extra soft for your hardworking body? In shades of blush, rose and cranberry, it’s like making a cocktail of pretty pregnancy pajamas. Ask for a massage and use belly balms, oils and butters carefully crafted from expecting skincare. It is all about giving the bump a little extra TLC.
There is so much to love, so finishing the night off with glowing skin, a smooch from your honey and the feeling of your baby growing inside of you is the icing on the cake. Or… end the night with cake. Hey, you’re eating for two! Happy cravings and Happy Valentine’s Day. With Hugs & Kisses – Motherhood

Those who say nothing is perfect have never seen these ankle maternity pants. Why, you ask? Let us tell you the reasons.
- They are a skinny silhouette, which elongates the legs for a slimming effect, while still highlighting that beautiful bump.
- They are made with super stretch fabric, providing maternity style for all throughout your pregnancy and right into motherhood.
- They are extremely versatile, going from desk to dinner, flats to heels and brunch to breakfast. (Wait, what? You can sleep in them too? Well, maybe not… but they are comfy enough!)
- They come in a myriad of colors… yes, a myriad!
- They are one of our top-rated, mamas-in-the-making approved pants.
So, when we say show a little ankle, we mean every day. Sized from extra-small through extra-large, we know you will find your size. We don’t need to tell you all the places you’ll wear them or all the ways to style them… unless you want us to list that too!
Work, dinner, shopping, weekends, farmer’s market, picnic, friend’s house, apple picking ___ with heels, with sneaks, with mules, with flats, with ballet slippers, with shirts, with tanks, with tees, with plaids, with patterns, with graphics and definitely with this blouse. You get it… so now get it! And visit our Instagram too. #thisisgoingtobefun
