You don’t need us to tell you that your body changes a lot during pregnancy and since you’re going to be carrying your little bundle of love for up to nine months, it’s worth adding some maternity clothing to your wardrobe to ensure your body is properly supported.
We love maternity clothes that are both reasonably priced and accessible, meaning you can easily pop into a shop to try or return any pieces you’re not happy with. Step forward H&M, whose maternity clothes Mother&Baby were seriously impressed with.
Boasting a huge variety of gorgeous options for mums-to-be, there really is something for every mama, helping her keep comfortable and fashionable at a great price. We've pulled together our favourite pieces to get you started.
