Who says being stylish and preggers can be difficult? If you know what works for you and your baby you’ll have the effortless glowing pregnancy you wanted. Just follow these easy steps and you’re well on the way to mastering the art of pregnancy style.
Body Shape Recognition
For every woman there is a fruit shape to which their figure is aligned and we dress accordingly! But to our advantage this rule need not apply for ‘Yummy Mummies-to-be’. In our case, we can dress FOR us and show off the parts we really love, no matter how we are feeling. Always opt for comfort and a splash of colour to compliment your mood and already glowing complexion!
This is your chance to revel in your baby body glow.

Crazy For Curves
From the Kardashian Clan, Kate Moss to Miranda Kerr, all these mummies are celebrating the curvy bonuses that come with the pregnant physique, fast becoming a token trend in the Hollywood world
Investing in a few staple pieces that fit seamlessly into your wardrobe will make you thankful for those ‘impossible’ days. With these comfortable basics , you’ll love dressing down for daily errands – cotton tees, leggings, maternity-tailored cut jean, and a fitted jacket.

Have Pride and Accessorise
Bags. Bracelets. Necklaces. Earrings. Scarves – the list can go on and on! So, take this as an excuse to maximise your jewellery collection and accessorise to your heart’s content. As well as thinking practical, opt for a fab handbag that can fit all those baby essentials when post-pregnancy rolls along.
Don’t neglect your personal style; wear what works for you and puts you at ease. Colour makes you feel amazing when pregnant and will bring you to life after bubba is born; black maybe flattering but can sometimes make you feel dull.
Maintain That Maternal Glow with these beauty products and tips
That natural skin glow is your body working overtime to have enough blood production for two. To keep that glow looking great, it's important to keep skin moisturised every day, and to exfoliate one or two times a week as well.
A few of my favorite maternity beauty must haves include –
Colostrum gel is harvested from naturally occurring bovine colostrums that is most gentle healing skin repair for those experiencing extra sensitivity and hormonal changes during pregnancy.
Jane Iredale GlowTime Full Coverage BB Cream $99.00
This cream is a multi-tasking dynamo that combines foundation, concealer, sunscreen and moisturiser in a versatile, one-step product.
Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener $99.00
Smooth Affair is a lovely formula packed with deliciously fragrant botanicals with anti-aging properties to brighten and even skin tone.
And don’t forget about sun protection, lather on that SPF! Make sure you keep wearing sunscreen. The face (and the rest of your body) needs added protection from the sun's rays.
LA’BONIC is a new natural sunscreen combining natural, pure ingredients and made right here in New Zealand. LA’BONIC comes in a choice of three applications including tube, stick or roll-on From $19.95
Unlike chemical sun blocks which have to be absorbed into the skin to be effective, LA’BONIC Natural Sun Block sits on top of the skin creating a UV rays reflecting barrier that works as soon as it’s applied plus is suitable for all age groups including the sensitive and young skin of babies and children.
