When’s my next appointment? When do I get my test results? Was that a kick? What color should I paint the nursery? I need to sign-up for my birthing class. I have to get my guest list together for the baby shower. What am I going to name this baby? Ouch, my hips hurt. I am so tired. I have to pee again…
Growing a baby keeps your mind and body literally SO busy. It is a completely overwhelming experience inside and out. BUT you still need to go about your normal routine – go to work, run errands, meet up with friends – and you have to get dressed to do those things.
When I was pregnant, I was kind of shocked by how quickly I needed to switch to maternity clothes. Even before I had an obvious bump, the waistband of my jeans just wasn’t comfortable. And my boobs? The lightest of breezes made them sore. So, before I even announced my pregnancy, I was looking at a closet full of clothes with absolutely nothing to wear. I wanted comfort, I wanted versatility – and most importantly, I didn’t want to keep buying new clothes as I grew.
Motherhood Maternity was founded by a real mom with these same real concerns. She had problems getting dressed – so she designed her own clothes, and Mothers Work (our OG name) was born. And after almost four decades of helping mamas feel more comfortable in their own skin, we’ve learned a thing or two.
One of our biggest lessons along the way is that getting dressed after baby arrives is possibly even harder than when you’re pregnant. Personally, I didn’t think it was possible, but my body changed even more rapidly after I gave birth. I’m pretty sure my boobs were a different cup size every hour. And I was so overwhelmed with my newborn that my brain basically RSVP-ed “no” to all day-to-day decisions – like getting dressed. I needed clothes that were effortless, comfortable, and supportive (so important because of my c-section), and that I could easily nurse in. And Motherhood gets it.
