Plaid is the number one piece where boy meets girl. But, we’ve updated the flannel fashion to enhance your new curves, hitting below the bump for a flattering finish. Its rustic roots make it any-season appropriate, but plaid is especially stylish during the holidays due to classic color variations with a focus on red. So, you don’t need to borrow from the boys, because our plaid is pretty perfect. Click here to shop all plaid pieces.

Classic clothing stands not only the test of time, but is also seasonless and adaptable. That’s why styles like this smocked-waist dress are a no brainer! The stretchy waistband makes an above the bump statement during your pregnancy and transitions smoothly to flatter your post-baby body. Chiffon sleeves keep the dress appropriate for winter through summer, plus it has a length that looks great with sandals or leggings and boots. Get creative with your looks and make the most out of your maternity wardrobe. Shop all of our dresses here.

We’re excited to announce that we partnered with Touch by Alyssa Milano, and will be offering its officially licensed NFL tee-shirts and long-sleeve shirts featuring NFL team colors just for moms-to-be!
Actress, mom of two, and a huge New York Giants fan, Alyssa catered her line of NFL tops especially for expecting moms so they can cheer on their favorite teams in style. “Who knew that being pregnant twice could spur a fabulous business idea? Being such a huge sports fan I wanted to show my team pride during my pregnancies…and there was nothing cool and fashionable to buy,” says Alyssa. “So, I decided to create a new collection within my Touch Brand specifically for ladies like me. And, I am super excited to now be partnering with Motherhood Maternity to sell the collection.”
With four styles to choose from, you can show your team spirit while staying comfortable, whether at a game or watching from the couch.

With summer winding down and the long Labor Day weekend approaching, we’re planning on soaking up that summer sun and heading to the beach before the season ends. To prepare, we turned to one of our favorite celebrity moms and co-founder of The Honest Company, Jessica Alba, for what she packs in her beach bag. Read along for more from this mom mogul!
Guest Editor: Jessica Alba, Co-Founder of The Honest Company.
Bug Spray: I love our bug spray because it safely repels using organic essential oils (and made without DEET)! It smells so good and is super easy to use – a warm weather must.
Sunscreen: Gentle and effective. Done and done. My beach bag is already stuffed enough, so I go for products that the whole family can use. I’ll give my girls a snack or popsicle while I slather them with sunscreen and reapply throughout the day.
Lip Balm: Our organic lip balm is everything! They are perfect for everyday use, but especially great for summer when my lips get extra chapped. It utilizes Shea butter and aloe leaf extract and comes in three yummy flavors.
Hand Sanitizer Spray: My kids love this stuff – it’s so easy to use and smells great. The quick-drying formula helps kill germs and bacteria and the bottle is perfectly purse-sized.
Wipes : I call these “cheek to cheek” wipes because they work just as well on your own face as they do your baby’s bottom. They wipe down sticky fingers, clean up spills, easily remove makeup, and are great for keeping sandy feet out of the car! My beach tip: stick a travel pack in the ice chest for a quick and easy cooldown.

Closing in on your due date? It is time to start packing your hospital bag! Here are our suggestions for new mom and baby essentials that will help you prepare, while making your hospital stay feel more like home
Including soft and stretchy basics that you’ll wear before and after baby’s arrival is a great place to start. Base layers like camis, sleep bras and nursing pads will be your go-tos, especially if you plan to nurse after birth. Bring pajamas you can relax and feel comfortable in, since sleeping after baby will be tough; plus, prepare for visitors by packing a cozy robe. Make sure your trusted skincare and bath-care makes it with you too.
You’re going to want a casual and practical outfit to head home in. We suggest your favorite pair of leggings that transition with you from maternity to motherhood and a pull-over top. Throw in a cute outfit for baby and a pacifier too!
You can shop all of our suggestions below. We’d love to hear what you’re planning to pack in your hospital bag. Share with us below and happy packing!
Nursing Camis // Unlined Nursing Sleep Bra // Lansinoh Disposable Nursing Pads // Lansinoh Lanolin Cream For Breastfeeding Mothers// Shampoo + Body Wash By The Honest Company // Bump In The Night Nursing Nightgown // Jessica Simpson Lace Trim Maternity Robe // Jessica Simpson 3/4 Sleeve Pull Over Wrap Nursing Top// Leggings // Wubbanub Pacifier // Happy Baby Bodysuit

I want to forget about email, relax with my boys, and have nothing pressing on my to-do list except movies and Cheez-It®s!
Kristen Diamond, Divisional Merchandise Manager of Skincare, Accessories and Lingerie
My plans are brunch with the kids, my husband and my mom and— depending on weather— we will go to the zoo or just play inside!
Jillian O’Hara, Senior Buyer, Outerwear, Swim, Dresses and Plus
My perfect Mother’s Day would be spending quality time with my family. I would love to kick off the day with a delicious coffee; enjoy an outside activity like going to a playground or park; and relax with a homemade dinner grilled to perfection. Of course I wouldn’t object to some flowers as a treat!
Alicia Fitzmire, Buyer, Lingerie
My ideal day would be playing with my daughter at the park, and having my husband take care of all of the cooking and cleaning!

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!

This may be the very first time you get to celebrate this special day, so we’ve put together a wish list of outfits and gifts just for you! Treat yourself or pass to someone who may need a hint!
With the weather warming up, a dress is a great way to show off the bump AND help you stay cool. The Spaghetti Strap Tiered Maternity Maxi Dress or the Sleeveless Belted Maternity Dress are both breezy and flattering options for your Mother’s Day celebration, as well as all spring long.
Spring means it’s time to lighten and brighten up your wardrobe; detailed tops and colorful crops allow you to add some hue-variation into your wardrobe.

We’ve teamed up once again with Jessica Simpson and GOOD+ Foundation (formerly known as Baby Buggy) to launch an exclusive tee shirt in celebration of Mother’s Day! For every Jessica Simpson Maternity Moon & Stars Tee shirt sold, $5 will go to the GOOD+ Foundation in support of a total donation of $25,000 from Motherhood Maternity®. Founded by Jessica Seinfeld, GOOD+ Foundation is a nonprofit organization that donates child products and services to families in need to break the cycle of poverty.
“I am always inspired by the work of Jessica Seinfeld and GOOD + Foundation. We’re happy to be able to partner again to support the crucial work they are doing for families in this country,” says Jessica Simpson. “My most important role in life is being a mom and I am honored to support other moms through this partnership.”
This year’s tee was inspired by Jessica’s sister Ashlee Simpson Ross’ celestial themed baby shower; Simpson said, “I was reminded of that special day when working on this tee. I hope that our customers can feel the love we put into it and it is able to help moms who are in need.”
“I love that you can celebrate a mom in your life while helping a mom in need at the same time,” says GOOD+ Foundation Founder and Board President, Jessica Seinfeld. “The generous donation from longtime supporters Jessica Simpson and Motherhood Maternity allows us to further support parents in need across the country.”
The super soft, heather grey tee shirt is currently available online and in Motherhood Maternity and Destination Maternity stores. If you purchase the tee, help raise even more awareness for GOOD+ Foundation and its network of moms and their families nationwide by snapping a pic and tagging @GOODPlusFdn @motherhoodmaternity and @jessicasimpsonstyle on Instagram!
