These Brands Go Above And Beyond To Tailor To The Expectant Mom
When it comes to the nine months before childbirth, let’s be honest: mom needs a little extra self-care time. The problem, is, it’s hard to actually find it. Lucky for all expectant moms out there, there are a handful of our favorite brands, from fashion to wellness, that are specifically catering to those mammas-to-be. Whether it’s 3×1 Denim, who will take your favorite jeans and convert them into more belly-friendly silhouettes, or Exhale Spa, offering a plethora of pre-and-post-natal yoga classes and private instruction, here are our favorite brands that are doing a little something extra for those pregnant women out there.
Maternity Denim Alterations, 3×1
If you’re not quite ready to give up on those tried-and-true non-maternity jeans, but know there’s a definite expiration date for that non-stretch waistband, look no further than 3×1 Denim. If you head to their NYC atelier in Soho, they’re more than happy to add stretch panels to either your pre-existing jeans or a brand new pair from their latest season.
Denim Alteration, 3×1 Denim, $100/pair.
Hatch is all about shopping for clothing that will not only work around your growing belly, but also pieces that you’ll actually want to keep in rotation after your child is born. Whether a jumpsuit, flowing tee, or oversized knit, these pieces are not only wardrobe staples for moms, but also those pre-pregnancy as well!
Hatch, prices vary.
Prenatal Massage, Exhale Spa
While Exhale Spa takes special care not to perform massages during the first trimester, they’re all about improving your health, wellness, and general quality of life during your second and third trimesters. Their spa menu includes a prenatal massage that promises to improve circulation, reduce swelling in hands and feet, and release tension in the lower back, neck, and shoulders.
Prenatal Massage, Exhale Spa, $150 for 60 minutes.
Prenatal Yoga, Pure Yoga
Seasoned yogis and newbies alike, check out Pure Yoga’s selection of prenatal yoga classes. With specific attention to abs and pelvic floor muscles, this class will have you strengthening everything that will support your pregnancy while taking care to avoid anything that might injure. What’s more, post-birth, they even have baby and me classes!
Prenatal Yoga, Pure Yoga, $35/class.
