All the Best for You and Your Bump

It's Time to Belly Up

queen mum maternity clothes!

When you can no longer see your feet, keep your eye on the prize.

Here are some of our favorite prenatal products and practitioners to help you over the finish line.

Get the Look
Dressing your bump in a muumuu might seem ideal, but take a cue from très chic mamas-to-be overseas. Imported lines like Sugar Town from France, Queen Mum from the Netherlands, and Stephanie Schell from Australia are arriving now at Bump Brooklyn.

Get the Room
Let the nursery designers at Sissy + Marley give your little nugget a happy haven. Opt for a full-service decorator ($100 an hour) or choose a less-expensive DIY option ($700-$900). You tell them about your space and your likes; they get back to you with an inspiration board, detailed shopping list, and floor plan.

Get the Goods
Check off all the items on your Earth-conscious list — from organic mattresses to nontoxic toys and eco diaper options — with one registry at Goodnight Room NYC. Consultants help you sort through the products and, on shower day, deliver all the gifts directly to your event location — significantly reducing the carbon footprint of your haul.

Get in Shape
If you’re more into sweating than om-ing, skip the ubiquitous prenatal yoga in favor of Fitnotic’s high-energy offerings. Choose from group fitness classes like Baby Belly Boot Camp, prenatal ballet, and Hoopnotica Hoopdance. Or opt for the Fitnotic Forty, a private training program that will keep you motivated and safely exercising right up to the very end.
