The Bump & Beyond
Maternity clothes that you can wear forever? --- Yep. It's legit!
Bump and Beyond. -- It's what we do. It's what we've always done. For many expecting mamas, this is a newer concept. For us it's a concept we've lived with all our hearts since 1996.
Pregnancy style shouldn't mean finding only what fits and settling for looking like you're sporting someone's else's style.
At Mom's the Word we work hard to ensure every mama feels like herself at a time when she needs it the most. Your style - your way.
It's Body Appreciation Day!
No, it's not. We just made that up.
But, we do feel strongly that it should be a thing, and we feel strongly that it shouldn't be just a day! How about a year? How about a lifetime?
Almost daily we hear women who struggle with the changes that their bodies are going through. Frustrated. Sad. Angry. And, we get it, it's hard! It's totally strange to have so little control over something that we used to have at least a degree of control over. We suddenly focus on all the imperfections- our perceived imperfections.
I remember a client telling me with glee once, of her 3 month old baby, "She has cellulite! It can't be a bad thing! I was born with it!!"
It's time to change our perceptions. No?
The bodies that we work with here at Mom's the Word?
- make humans from 2 cells
And we knock them?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
That should be more than enough, but, just in case people are not impressed, also:
- are capable of being the exclusive food source for new humans
- can sustain life of that other tiny human
So, how about it, show your body the respect it deserves? It's up to us, the moms, to stop the body shaming.
