Pregnancy care

When you get pregnant, there’s no shortage of opinions and new knowledge about how your body is going to change during your pregnancy... You hear about what to expect during pregnancy and what you need for the new baby, but why doesn’t anyone talk about what UNDERWARE you'll buy?

Were you planning on wearing those frilly little numbers up to your due date?

Let's talk about panties.

Even if you didn’t invest big bucks into your lingerie before baby, this is certainly no time to cut corners. The panty timeline goes from frills to briefs as the weeks pass by.

But let's get real! It’s about comfort here, ladies.

We’re all for body positivity and you should feel confident and sexy while pregnant in your undergarments, but during pregnancy, your bum and belly may require a bit more support.

Staying safe from negativity during pregnancy!

“She acts like she’s the only woman to ever be pregnant”… followed by an eye roll….

Who says that?! Oh, I’ll tell you who says that! WOMEN! Close friends, co-workers, sisters, in-laws, out-laws etc… The onslaught of birth negativity starts the moment we share our amazing news!

There are some bizarre behaviors that surround pregnancy in our culture that I will never understand.
Here is a perfect example.

Newly pregnant mom: My midwife said my estimated due date is Sept 12th.

Sister in law: Hmmph…That doesn’t mean a thing. If you don’t have your baby by that day, they will induce you.
Newly pregnant mom: Really?

Sister in law: Yup, that’s what happened to me. They made me go to the hospital, hooked me up to this crazy medicine called Pitocin. I was contracting like crazy! One after another for hours! I begged for an epidural! I thought I was gonna DIE!!!!
Newly pregnant mom: What if I want a natural birth or a water birth?

Sister in law: What are you nuts?! Go to the hospital and get an epidural the second you go into labor!!!
Newly pregnant mom: (walks away feeling terrified and confused)
