A versatile shirt dress is ideal for work

As your pregnancy progresses, and you get bigger, you begin to feel uncomfortable in normal clothes. Usually, leisure or lounge style clothing will do the trick to keep you comfortable. But what about the office? Most companies won’t allow you to rock up for work in your yoga pants (booo!) as it does not promote a professional image. So how do pregnant women stay both comfortable and smart at work? We have some tips.

Shirt dresses are a great way to cover your bump in a flattering way, while still maintaining the professional look. Choose lighter weight fabrics to help you stay feeling fresh during warmer months. Shirt dresses can be worn with either trousers or a skirt.

A supportive pair of tights really helps when your legs are prone to getting aches and pains, and are ideal for work wear.

A good pair of black trousers will keep you comfortable and also look smart. You can dress them up or down to suit your needs.

Suit jackets can work well when you are pregnant. You can leave them undone and wear tops that have a little stretch underneath. Neutral tones are best for a professional look.

Check out our stylish work wear, designed with quality and comfort in mind. It’s time to strut your stuff in the office and leave your baggy pants at home!

 

Dads-to-be

Pregnancy can often be a time of joy and emotion as you experience becoming a Mum.Dad to be With hormones raging, together with the enormity of the fact that your life will change forever, is it any wonder that insecurities start to be felt? That is just the Mums! While all the attention is on us, spare a thought for the Dads-to-be too!

Not only does he have to deal with his partner becoming a crazy woman, the notion of becoming a father is also one that creates anxiety as well as excitement. He may have his own worries and concerns such as whether he will be able to provide for you and the baby. Other common feelings include whether he will be a good Dad, or perhaps he will or won’t be as good a father as his own. Will sex with his partner ever be the same again? What if something prevents you getting to the hospital in time and he has to deliver the baby?

Although some of these concerns may seem irrational, (sound familiar?) they do add to the pressure that Dads-to-be feel. Having a baby means that he has to grow as a man, measure up and perform. So next time you notice your partner is a little quiet, do not take it personally. Just remember, he is experiencing the same roller-coaster of emotion as you are.
