HOLIDAY WORK PARTIES

MH BLOG HolidayWorkParty 2018 v3

This is for our corporate mamas, the ones who hold down the nine to fives and then some. The holiday work party comes but once a year. However, it doesn’t look the same for everyone, of course! There are the “parties” that happen on your lunch break, in the company kitchen with homemade cupcakes and sparkling cider when you are still #clockedin. That’s okay. Don’t feel blue; dress in blue.

We have the outfit you need to add some light and life: the tie waist maternity top with a gathered cuff design in teal blue. [This also comes in a burgundy floral print.] Add a black pair of maternity pants, or if your office leans on the casual side, a nice pair of black maternity jeans.

Is your work party #outofoffice? Okay, so this is your chance to dress up. The featured puff sleeve velvet maternity dress is the epitome of LBD, which can also stand for luxurious black dress. Put your bump on display, grab a mocktini and get ready for all the compliments. Your boss may even give you one. Unless, of course, you are the boss.

MORE EARLY STOCKING STUFFERS

MH BLOG EarlyStockingStuffers 2018 v1

These stockings were certainly hung with care. We know that Christmas and Hanukkah are next month, but is it ever really too early to get ahead of the shopping game? We think not, which is why our early stocking stuffers suggestions are here for you NOW!

Our first early stocking stuffers post was all about little gifts for your little gift, aka the baby! And although we still love the Wubbanub, these stocking stuffers are really more for mama. To begin, we shall start at the bottom… and by that we mean your feet. Pregnancy makes you achy and a lot of times your swollen ankles need a break. Give your toes something cozy to slip into with our newest faux fur slide slippers (shown in blush pink and grey) or any of our hospital socks that feature sayings like, “If you can read this, I’m about to be a mom.”

Now work your way up and give your legs super soft maternity leggings, which pair so well with any of the graphic maternity tees and our holiday maternity sweaters. We’ve literally pinned two for you: the mama and baby polar bear sweater and the Santa Baby red sweater. Oh, and that red, green, gold-bowed gem our model is wearing? That’s our Christmas present bow maternity sweater. Because let’s be honest, you and your beautiful bump are the present!

Happy shopping. Stay tuned all month long for more posts featuring gift ideas.

THANKFUL FOR THE SECRET FIT BELLY

MH BLOG SFB Thankful v1

Remember when Joey Tribbiani wore Phoebe’s maternity pants on Thanksgiving because they had so much room to grow as he ate? That’s exactly what this post is tapping into! We are here to give our thanks to our favorite waistband, our exclusive and patented Secret Fit Belly® panel.

HERE ARE THE TOP 3 REASONS YOU’LL LOVE THE SECRET FIT BELLY®

  1. When expecting, you can expect to continue to wear the styles you love. The patented panel is featured not only on our maternity jeans, but on pants and leggings too.
  2. Its seamless construction is fabricated from Nylon/Spandex yarn providing a smooth fit. It also offers great recovery, stretching over your bump at every stage.
  3. Versatile elasticity gives you extra style mileage from your pants. It doesn’t slip, stays fitted, can be folded down or kept up for adjustable comfort that continues to work as your belly grows.

AND BONUS REASON:

It doesn’t constrict you when gobbling down the turkey, the cranberry sauce, the mashed potatoes, the corn, the string beans, the gravy, the sweet potatoes, and it doesn’t make you feel stuffed when eating the stuffing. Plus, it continues to be a sweet choice when piling the whipped cream on your pumpkin pie. That’s the not so secret secret of the belly band. Happy Thanksgiving Mamas!

 

 

TURKEY TEES

MH BLOG Turkey Tees 2018 v1

What’s on the menu for Thanksgiving when it comes to dressing? Go for cute and comfy this year, Mama! Our maternity graphic tees are dishing up something special for you.

Let’s talk turkey… literally. The two shown holiday tees are all about the little one cooking in your belly. We loved the color of the top maternity shirt and had thought about taking it to another level with a complementary plaid maternity button up in reds, burgundy and shades of blue.

Our second turkey tee featured pops of bright orange and yellow, so we mellowed out the gray graphic by pairing it with our white and black plaid top. We imagined it open over the tee with our stretchy and supportive Secret Fit Belly® maternity jeans. Just wait until you see why we’re thankful for them! [Editor’s Note: look for a blog post coming soon!]

Although not in your face Thanksgiving, we also sell our exclusive Blessed to be a Mama maternity t-shirt, which also comes in plus sizing 1X-3X. Oh… and that cute letterboard that we used in our photo shoots – we sell that too! Make it yours.

Thanksgiving is Thursday, November 22nd, so make sure you order these styles this week to ensure they come in time with standard shipping and delivery. Also make sure you tag us in your Thanksgiving look, either today with #GraphicTeeTuesday or always with #thisisgoingtobefun @motherhoodmaternity!

SO MUCH TO CELEBRATE

MH BLOG FloorsetNovember v1

We know, we know… Halloween JUST happened, and Thanksgiving isn’t even here yet! That’s why we aren’t going straight to Christmas. We are taking a little detour and ever so slightly getting you in the spirit. Look past the gold confetti and red font. When we say there is so much to celebrate, that means Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, the end of another year and the beginning of a great adventure with baby. In other words, we are celebrating style and celebrating YOU!

To start, we are all about maternity denim. It’s America, and it’s kind of our signature. So, begin with your choice of blue and then work your way up. This is our second year selling the maternity overalls and they remain one of the top loved styles. We see them having a “third times the charm” moment in 2019 too! But there is no wrong way to wear jeans. Shop the featured skinny ankle pair here.

Sweater weather has of course come, but we are really living for plaid season. The featured red and blue plaid maternity top is actually a button front with convertible sleeves; so when those pregnancy hormones [or office heat] kick in, you can roll them all the way up! [Editor’s Note: this shirt comes in 8 different colors!]

You need your choice of maternity blouses particularly for this time of year. Between the parties, get-togethers and family fun… you should opt for a top that is pretty and practical. Shop the shown ruffle detail, tie sleeve maternity blouse in cherry or black! How do you dress for the busy season? Show us with #thisisgoingtobefun @motherhoodmaternity!

MH BLOG GR Blueberries v2

SUMMER BUMP SHOT SERIES

MH BLOG Bumpshots v1

Let’s have a little refresher course on the bump shot! Last November we created a series all about capturing your best bump pic, starting with tips from a professional, our in-house photographer Bobby! Then, we helped with inspo on how to style your shoot, how to style yourself, and then how to bring it all to life. We decided to head to the studio to give the bump shot series a little summer makeover.

Using the same great tips, we suggest styling your shoot with natural light if possible, but if not, then get creative with props! Beach balls and glittery pool tubes certainly set the scene. There is no denying that the season is summer. Styling yourself is easy, because all of our maternity swimsuits are made to fit and flatter; they are ready to have their picture taken. The featured bathing suit is our polka dot halter two piece in navy and mint.

Are you finding out the gender this summer? The bump shot is always good for a reveal. We are in love with our selfie frame. With balloons and a matching pink maternity dress… it’s a girl AND it’s ready to be posted, liked, shared!

And for our final inspiration… when in doubt, add food! What rhymes with #preggo? Well, it isn’t waffle, but you catch our drift. Go with your cravings, then dress accordingly. Nothing is cuter than a graphic tee paired with maternity jean shorts. It’s #perfect!

Inspire us! Show us your summer bump shops. #thisisgoingtobefun @motherhoodmaternity

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!
