Your guide to the warmest maternity clothes now it's freezing outside

As if being pregnant isn't difficult enough, being pregnant in the winter months is even harder as you've got the cold to contend with. Not only are you trying to keep yourself warm and healthy, you're also concerned about protecting bump from the freezing temperatures. You'd go out in a duvet if you could, but you still want to be stylish.

Did you know? A pregnant woman's body temperature is usually two degrees higher than the average, so you won't feel the chill so much, but you've still got to bundle up! Don't worry, we've got the best ideas for outfits that will wrap you and bump in cosy warmth, and make you look totally elegant at the same time...
