Mother and Nature is the UK’s first range of Pre and post-birth activewear for women. It’s the only maternity wear that’s designed with the active mum-to-be in mind and can keep up with your lifestyle, protecting you and your bump from the elements. Plus, as your bump grows, our range grows with you. It’s designed to give you the freedom to alter as you do. Then when your baby is born, simply readjust the clothing back to its original size so you can carry on wearing them!
Mother & Nature was born from my desire to carry on enjoying the great outdoors whilst pregnant. What better way to spend a weekend than walking in the Lake District, immersing myself in some beautiful scenery, and taking my baby bump on adventures and climbing some mountains, hoping that we’d be doing the same in a few years.
These trips soon became difficult for me as the weather turned and winter approached. My jacket and walking trousers no longer fitted. I tried to make adjustments, which just left space for a cold breeze, or additional layers, which soon became restrictive, or just too warm for walking.
I could not find any suitable maternity wear, I couldn’t believe I was the only one, and it seemed I wasn’t. There was a range of forums with women asking the same questions, where can I buy a decent maternity waterproof jacket or trousers?
I had the lightbulb moment and decided this was something I had to do. Mother & Nature was born, my mission, was, has been, and will continue to be, to produce a range of functional, comfortable and suitable maternity wear, to allow women to carry on enjoying those activities they did prior to pregnancy. This could be walking in the Lake District, a weekend camping, walking the dog in the park, or taking the children to school.
It is important to have appropriate clothes to continue to enjoy this wonderful time in your life, and do it as comfortably as possible!
