When it comes to pregnancy, it may be tempting to hibernate for nine months and emerge like  a butterfly on the other end. However keeping active and moving your body throughout pregnancy has myriad benefits, both for yourself and bub. 

We understand finding comfortable and somewhat stylish maternity activewear is not always an easy task – until now!
