NURSING SOLUTIONS

MH BLOG Nursing Solutions v1

Being that our name is Motherhood Maternity, we want to continue to support you beyond delivery! Nursing and pumping moms need a place to shop, because the 4th trimester is very real. We know that getting “back to your pre-pregnancy size” isn’t as easy as Hollywood makes it look, and we also know that going back to work after maternity leave often means investing in a new wardrobe. We’ve listened to your needs and specifically designed a line to meet them.

First and foremost, our maternity bras are nursing bras, so you can continue to love the ones you bought during pregnancy into parenthood. Most of our bras feature the clip-down feature, but our beloved sleep styles have a pullover or lift-up style. Our 5-star, customer favorite, top-rated, award winning seamless bra has the clip down style and is perfect for sensitive postpartum breasts.

We have expanded past just our assortment of nursing camis, even though they are still one the most-loved pieces. We know our customers are hard-working women who need nursing styles that work just as hard as they do. From a pretty printed nursing dress, to sweaters and sweatshirts… we have updated the ways in which to gain easier access. Gone are the days of stripping down in a pumping room. With size-zippers, button down or up tops, lift overs, clips and pull downs… whatever way you find it best for breast, we have it.

Every top needs a bottom, so we encourage you to complete your new mom look with our postpartum pants from our exclusive BounceBack Collection. There are two types of compression panels to help ease you back into fitted clothing. Unlike girdles or tight belts, these panels are stretchy and help aid in stomach retention after birth. They provide a smooth and seamless finish under clothing without the pain of too tight pants. This is how we go past nursing solutions and into new mom solutions! Congratulations new moms and all moms-to-be.

DENIM DAY TO NIGHT

MH DaytoNight IG

You need a pair of maternity jeans that work as hard as you do, because who’s busier than a mama-to-be? Our denim is made to effortlessly work from day to night, keeping you comfortable and in style AM to PM. Follow along with our busy mama!

Wake up with an early morning walk for you or your favorite pet! They say to keep moving mama, and our featured pair of maternity jeans [the ankle jeggings in a dark wash] is sure to get you going. The cotton construction and superior stretch give them smooth support for your growing bump. They are complete with our patented panel, the Secret Fit Belly®, which leaves a seamless finish under any top, like our striped French terry maternity hoodie – perfect for those fall mornings.

Whether you clock in to the office or log in from your couch… jeans look polished with a maternity blouse that ties the look together. Add your own accessories for that professional touch.

Meeting friends or grabbing a bite with your S.O. after the job is done? Have no fear… these jeans are still here! Simply change out your work shirt with a bright flutter sleeve maternity top for a fun take on the night. Slip on some cute shoes, grab that bite to eat and feel amazing knowing that belly band will grow with you!

Work is over, dinner is done and the TV is calling for you. Binge your fave in your fave. The jegging feels as soft as a legging, and looks even cuter with a graphic sweatshirt maternity tee and fuzzy slippers for cozy toes. It’s okay if you fall to sleep in your jeans… we don’t judge! Want another pair of maternity jeans to take you morning to evening [or the next morning]? Find yours here!

 

KNIT BAR

MH BLOG KnitBarFall v3

You have your new favorite pair of maternity jeans, but now you need to top off your look! The style staple that every mama-to-be needs in her maternity closet is the most loved side-ruched tee.

Fall in love with the elbow sleeve style, which makes the perfect transition from summer to autumn. The stretch, the fit, the way it grows with you… there is no wrong way to layer it into your wardrobe, from month one through nine. Let’s break down the newest pieces that are perfect for pregnancy!

Florals are still in full bloom, but they are deeper and crisper than the shades of spring. The navy floral is bursting with blue buds, while the pink floral has shades of earthy spices. The black floral is petaled with mossy green leaves and macro florets.

Stripes are pretty much a neutral at this point.  They too get the fall refresh with a bold navy and gold, as well as a more subtle oat and faded pink. They look amazing under a blazer or maternity cardi for a cool contrast.

Basic is far from a bad thing! Sometimes a girl just needs a plain white and black maternity tee! Of course, choice is the spice of life, so we think filling your drawers with chalk pink, allure blue, pomegranate red, and forest night green is also the way to go.

Stocking up on the essentials is always a good thing. They are the first step of fashion! Want more options? Try these beautiful basics in short sleeve, long sleeve and sleeveless too.

JEANIOUS TIPS: HOW TO FIND YOUR FIT

MH BLOG DenimBellies v1

Denim. It’s the sartorial equivalent of a best friend—and the first thing to be relegated to the “pre-pregnancy” pile once you start showing. Enter the maternity jean. Finding a perfect pair is a daunting task. Will they feel restrictive? Can a pair that fits in month 5, still fit in month 9? Will they look like, eek, maternity jeans? Our responses, respectively: No, yes, and absolutely not! Allow us to break it down so you can be united with your denim soulmate.

CHOOSE YOUR WAISTBAND

Secret Fit Belly: Our trademarked soft and stretchy waistband can be pulled all the way over the bump or folded down to sit under it; its versatility and seamless finish makes it our most popular option. The panel is designed with incredible stretch and recover to accommodate all stages, so no worrying about whether that supportive fit at week 26 will still be supportive at week 40.

Side-Panels: This is the most discreet option as durable side elastics are barely noticeable even if someone gets a glimpse of your waistband. Its subtlety makes it a favorite—especially for women who want to keep wearing them through the fourth trimester (to which we, of course, say “do it!”).

Under Belly Waistband: This soft waistband features a no-slip fit without an extra layer of fabric—ideal if you’re going to be wearing them in warmer months and post-partum.

CHOOSE YOUR CUT

Skinny: Our signature fit, beloved for its versatility. If you lived in skinny jeans before you became pregnant, these are about to become your standbys. Bonus: Choose from regular, petite or tall lengths.

Shop Stretch Skinny with Secret Fit Belly.
Shop Skinny with Side Panels.
Shop Skinny with Under Belly Band.

Stretch Straight: A classic cut that can be worn cuffed or not—your call. Totally timeless, this features a slim (but not skinny) leg.

Shop Stretch Straight with Secret Fit Belly.

Stretch Bootcut: This throwback-style is back in a big way, and we think it’s perfect for waking up pregnancy wardrobe.

Maternity Overalls

 

The wait is over for the next season of style… we are all about the Fall Refresh, starting NOW! Before September sets in, we are already dreaming of sweater weather and denim days. Check out the new pieces that just arrived for autumn.

There is nothing quite like blue jeans, baby! And the best-selling maternity overalls are back in full force. Try a light maternity sweater underneath or tees with sleeves for the cool weather vibe we have been missing. Our graphic maternity tees are also getting the update, with longer sleeves, cozier sayings and new holiday themes. Go ahead and stick one under those overalls for double cuteness.

Last but not least, put away the sundresses and go the long haul with new maternity maxi dresses with deeper, richer, darker patterns. Are you shower ready? Make sure you shop for your day and find the maternity dress that is ready to be seen and snapped. Then, tag us in your pic. We love to see you in our fall fashions. @motherhoodmaternity #thisisgoingtobefun #fallinlovewithmotherhood

BUMPSTART STARTER KIT

MH BLOG Bumpstart MultiPack v1

We are so excited to launch our BumpStart 4-Piece Starter Set!

Our sales associates often field questions from customers about when to start shopping and what to buy early in their pregnancies. We took this feedback and created a one-stop maternity shopping solution for you: the BumpStart 4-Piece Starter Set. Four classic pieces in basic black – the perfect foundation for the next nine months!

Our classic and comfortable BumpStart maternity tee and tank feature side-ruching. They will be your go-tos from barely showing to full blown bump.

Our side-ruched maternity dress has 3/4th sleeves and hits just above-the-knee for any-season styling. Play around with jewelry and shoes, or add a light layer when the weather starts to cool.

No kit would be complete without every mom-to-be’s favorite: the maternity legging. The BumpStart pair has an underbelly waistline, made from cotton and lightweight jersey knit. They are breathable and versatile.

Now that you’ve got your foundation, play around with other pieces like maternity blouses and button ups to layer on and create your very own pregnancy style.

Your maternity wardrobe starters are ready for you and already in the bag! Begin with BumpStart.

LABOR, DELIVERY & NURSING GOWN

MH BLOG HospitalGown v1

3-in-1 Gown

Make your hospital stay feel more like home and more like you. This super soft cotton modal and spandex labor, delivery and nursing gown is nothing like the standard issue version from the hospital. Think a little more luxury and lot more comfort.

The hospital bag must-have includes easy snap buttons in both the front and the back so doctors have access for administering epidurals as well as front fetal monitoring. There are side slits along the gown so that IVs can be placed comfortably without irritation from clothing.

Shoulder snaps allow quick access for skin to skin contact once the baby is born. And, it’s nursing friendly! It’s so comfortable and breathable, we know mamas will wear it while pregnant too. It’s a 3-in-1 perfect for your registry and hospital bag. [Plus, it comes in black!]

NATIONAL BREASTFEEDING MONTH

the nursing check list. Bras, tops, camis, pajamas, nipple cream, nursing pads, nursing covers. You've got this, Mama! And we've got you. Share your Motherhood experiences with #spilledmilk

August is National Breastfeeding Month! In 2011, the United States Breastfeeding Committee dedicated the entire month to shedding light on breastfeeding, and we couldn’t be more excited to join the conversation. At Motherhood, it’s important to us that we continue to support you, our customers, as you transition from mom-to-be to mama. We feel that our role is to help make breastfeeding easier from nursing bras to balms to camisoles to clothes specifically designed for easy access.

We are definitely known for our maternity clothing, but we have nursing styles with so many features that let our new moms continue to be themselves, whether going back to work and having to pump or navigating homelife as a nursing mom. We created a page dedicated to all things nursing. In fact, if you bought a maternity bra from us, the best part is that it is also made for breastfeeding. With clip down and pull over designs, your maternity bra easily transitions into a nursing bra.

We want to hear your stories and create a community here as well. All month long we will be posting real moms showing their nursing styles. We hope you share your new mom adventures with us, from funny to serious stories, to plain ol’ crazy ones! We know that the journey really begins when the baby is born. Make sure you use our hashtag #spilledmilk @motherhoodmaternity throughout August! Then, check back here for our nursing style guide, information and more.

Happy National Breastfeeding Month. Love, Motherhood!

BE A WILDFLOWER

MH BLOG Wildflower v1

Just like the wildflowers that inspired our pre-fall collection, we love how unique and beautiful each of our customers are!

Soft and feminine flowers are making their way into more than just maternity dresses, but also on our maternity blouse featuring kimono sleeves and our featured Jessica Simpson for Motherhood maternity jumpsuit.

Patterned with pretty blossoms, the featured maternity top gives a perfect polish to any outfit. Not sure what to pair your pretty top with? It’s still summer! Shop shorts made for maternity and keep your look fresh into those early days of autumn. When the chill sets in, pair it with maternity jeans. Make your affair with florals unique like you.
