I bought the hiking trousers and it was the best thing I’ve done since falling pregnant
I bought the maternity hiking trousers and it was the best thing I’ve done since falling pregnant. These are incredibly well thought out in design. First of all, I’d buy them before you think you’ll need them, I got them at 12 weeks and used them right away. I’m normally a size 8 but the 10s are fine, to begin with a little loose but the adjustable sides worked a treat. I really put these to the test hiking up some icy and snowy hills this winter, I was worried as the wind chill was in the minuses that I would need thermals underneath but I was perfectly warm without and that’s a huge relief, because no one wants layers when they feel fat and restricted already.
These trousers don’t chafe, they are incredibly lightweight, great in cold weather and snow but I’d say would be equally good in warmer weather too AND water resistant! I like that there is room to move in them and the best bonus is that they grow with your bump with adjustable elastic in the panels. It’s really comfortable around the bump without being restrictive, like a nice hug. These trousers have saved me this winter during the pandemic and allowed me to do the walks that make me happy and keep me sane. Best part is, I can use these after the birth too. Thank you so much for bringing out such an incredible product! And while I’m most likely hormonal, I could cry with happiness every time I wear them (I am pretty sure my husband is most likely sick of me commenting on them every five minutes when we go hiking ).
Perfect Fleece for Pregnancy and After!
I purchased the Mother & Nature full zip fleece over the summer to use for the last couple months of my pregnancy in the fall and I love this fleece! It was perfect while pregnant and now I can still wear it over the baby when she’s in a front carrier to keep us both warm. The side zips make it easy to expand and allow it to have a flattering shape even when not pregnant. The maternity fleece is very soft and keeps a great temperature.
Pre-pregnancy I’m usually a US size 6 or 8, in maternity clothes I was usually a medium, sometimes a small. I went with the UK 12 which fit perfectly, though I probably would have been happy with the 14 as well. If I’d needed winter layers under it while pregnant, the 14 would have been better, but 12 was perfect for me in fall. I was a little nervous about international shipping with the pandemic, but the package made it just fine and Sam was very communicative, providing wonderful customer service. I definitely recommend the fleece and Mother & Nature as a company!
Decent, comfortable & functional maternity clothes!
Thanks so much! And thank you for doing what you do, I think you’re the only supplier of decent, comfortable, functional maternity clothes in the UK. I couldn’t find anything when I was pregnant with my first 3 years ago, it’s amazing to find something that will actually stand up to some real use outdoors 😊
Absolutely love my new waterproof maternity coat and trousers from Mother and Nature. The size 12 coat was a little snug on the boob area so got in touch with Sam who exchanged it for size 14 no problems. Communication with Sam was fantastic and she always let me know what was happening with my orders.
Definitely recommend to any pregnant lady!! Thanks again Sam x
Winter In Alaska
I was so excited for the maternity fleece to come back in stock just in time for me to grab for my third trimester, entering winter in Alaska. Size 10 fit me and my bump well, and it’s perfectly warm and cozy! Since my little boy is due in late November, I didn’t want to invest in a full maternity winter coat, and this is the perfect underlayer to my pre-pregnancy winter coat that won’t quite zip 😉 I also love the side-zip feature – I’m so happy I can continue to wear it after pregnancy!
Even while biking I stayed dry
These are really good. Not only are they comfy, they keep you dry on rainy days too! Even when biking through a downpour my legs stayed dry and that’s something that most outdoor pants don’t manage (they usually leak at the folds of the knee).

Super Stylish Fleece
This maternity fleece is super soft, comfortable and keeps you warm and cosy. It features a zip on either side of your growing bump meaning it grows with you and also shrinks back down to your regular size afterwards! Another benefit is that it’s super stylish, so I don’t feel frumpy in my hiking gear!
I really like the jacket, and still wear it now 2 years on
I really like the jacket, and still wear it now 2 years on. It is ideal for the warmer months when you need a little more than a t-shirt, it keeps my back warm. The internal phone pocket is good. My daughter did fit in it ok. I wish I had known about your company earlier in my pregnancy as when I did wear the jacket it was SO comfy over my bump. Now I’m back to normal I find it really comfy and smart still.
This jacket is one of a kind!
I got the burgundy jacket for my daughter who’s a dog walker and 6 months pregnant. She is so pleased with it , fits perfect , rain runs rught off it. Best waterproof coat she’s ever had and so happy she will get the wear from it after birth too.
Communication brilliant when enquiring about it. Thank you so much
I purchased the Mother and
I purchased the Mother and Nature maternity hiking trousers, they are a life-saver! They’re the only maternity hiking trousers I could find and are super comfortable too! The material is good quality and they are lined too, so should be nice and warm for the winter months!
Please also make some waterproof over-trousers 🙂
Ideal for outdoor moms to be
I bought the jacket and the fleece in august, and I was impressed by the speed of delivery to Belgium. It arrived well in time to take them with me on our holiday to Normandy. I found the waterproofing to be even better than my husbands’ expensive big-brand outdoor jacket.
The fleece is just thick enough to be warm and just thin enough to be comfortable underneath the jacket. I’ll be wearing both for years to come!
About the size, I should have bought one size up. I still have plenty of room in the belly area, but I didn’t take into account that your chest may grow during your pregnancy, so around my chest it’s quite a tight fit. If you’re buying early in your pregnancy, I would recommend adding 1” to your current chest measurement to determine your size to avoid a really snug fit around the chest during those last two months. So pleased that they shipped worldwide, I was surprised that they even ship to America.
Stylish and fashionable
Absolutely love this jacket! I have seen lots of outdoor maternity clothing but this is just perfect for a growing bump due to the adjustable side zips. This also means I will get lots of wear afterwards as it adjusts back to a regular jacket. Really stylish and fashionable. Fantastic quality, really snug.
Outdoorsy Maternity Clothing
I have spent the last few weeks looking online and in retailers for a maternity coat that would be suitable for the English weather this time of year. I was starting to think that just a larger sized one would have to do as only being 15 weeks pregnant I wanted to be prepared. However I came across mother and nature and saw their waterproof jacket, perfect for walking the dog and tackling the rain. It’s a brilliant design allowing extra room for growth and being able to use it again afterwards making it very cost effective. I tried the coat out today up on the hills and it keeps you lovely and warm and dry. I would highly recommend this product.
excellent quality and full of functionality
Last minute buy for a festival!
We booked on for the Just So Festival 2019 last year and as it happened I was 33 weeks pregnant for it. I sent a message to Mother and Nature on Wednesday morning, when the weather forecast was looking atrocious for a full outdoors weekend, asking if next day delivery was possible. Fortunately for me they managed to arrange next day delivery for the maternity trousers so I was all set to go on Friday. The trousers were comfortable all weekend (I hate the feel of tight jeans etc) and kept me dry from the heavy rain on Friday and the long weekend of thick squelchy mud. I looked in all the usual places for waterproof maternity trousers but couldn’t find any. Very impressed with this small business!!
Recommended from Scrambling & Mountaineering UK
Ordered trousers and a fleece. They are great. Was recommended from scrambling and mountaineering UK as was having trouble finding any maternity clothes which were suitable for walking and hiking. Thank you so much, will definitely recommend.
Fleece so good I ordered a second!
Ordered walking trousers and fleece, there amazing. It’s so nice to be able to continue my usual holidays and walks in comfortable clothes. The quality of the products and customer service is second to none, the fleece is so nice and soft I have ordered a second, so glad I found this company during my search for walking maternity wear 😁 and thank you Sam for all your help 👍
The coat offers everything you would want…
With just beginning my second trimester, I was needing a coat that could accommodate my growing bump. However everywhere seemed to be impractical fashion coats that did not look nice or would keep me warm and dry during the winter months. I found this website during my search. The Maternity coat offers everything you would want. The coat adjusts with your growing bump, with brilliant expanding sides which only goes as big as I need; so, does not look like I am wearing a coat 2 sizes too big. The added perk is that I can continue to wear this coat once I am back to my pre-pregnancy size as you just re-zip the expanding sides back to normal. The coat is an amazing quality and as someone mentioned when I read the reviews it rivals a lot of walking brands quality, which I agree with. I have no doubt that this is up to all the winter British weather I will be walking in during the winter months.
Excellent for the Colorado climate!
After a few small rain showers & a late season snow, I have to say I love this jacket! I’ve been showing the jacket to all of my friends & telling them how awesome it is. My husband has even been showing it off – I think he’s jealous. I love the side panels & the inside snaps that make it adjustable for a growing baby. I definitely got the right size & have some room to grow. I also just noticed the phone pocket last week – a must for outdoor adventurers in Colorado! If I had know this jacket existed, I would have worn it all winter as well. It would make a great outer shell for skiing and winter activities. Plus I love that the zipper is covered when fully zipped so I don’t have a cold, metal zipper up against my mouth. That is an important feature for jackets in Colorado! USA
A little bit of genius!
Very impressed with the high quality…
I am very impressed with the high quality of Mother & Nature Maternity Waterproof Jacket. The fabric is much thicker than I anticipated, making it extremely waterproof. It has been great to use as a windbreaker or layer with a puffy jacket for colder days. I have the jacket in green, and it is such a gorgeous color. There is also great attention to detail in the design. The side panels are very easy to zip and unzip, and there are clasps on the inside that keep the extra fabric out of the way earlier in pregnancy (or if you wear this after pregnancy, which I am definitely planning to do). I have worn this every day since it first arrived in the mail and I can’t wait to keep wearing it! I would highly recommend this jacket for any pregnant mom, or even those who are just looking for a really great waterproof jacket!

I WON this amazing maternity coat!
I WON this amazing maternity coat and I’m so happy with it!
Today has been my first proper try out as I’ve had to walk in Cornwall’s latest storm! I can’t fit into any other waterproof coats at the moment! There is a fully waterproof pocket inside to keep my phone nice and dry. My bump and I are completely dry underneath. Thank you so much Mother and Nature.
5* for quality & comfort
I recently bought a jacket from Mother and Nature’s range and am so impressed by it. I love how you can adjust it to just the right size for your bump and how the rain and sleet just slide off, while I stay warm and comfy inside. It looks like it will fit nicely over baby in a sling and another major selling point is that I’ll be able to use it as a regular jacket once baby is in the buggy. 5 stars for quality, comfort and customer service.
Comfortable & stylish maternity wear
I am an avid hiker and I had a very difficult time finding maternity hiking gear that looked sharp, fit great, and supported my ever-changing body. Then I found Mother and Nature and everything changed! Sam’s line of activewear for outdoorsy pregnant women has everything you will need to keep you and your bump dry, warm, cozy, and comfy on the trail and beyond. I loved her fleece, which is super soft. Her hiking pants are the only real maternity hiking pants I was able to find on the market. The jacket is stylish and great for pregnancy and postpartum baby wearing. I’m so glad I found these products, and I would highly recommend her clothing line! Thank you Sam! ❤️
Perfect for Scottish weather!
I love this jacket! I have a jacket in navy blue and it is my only jacket that currently fits me (37 weeks pregnant at the moment). Love how it can be adjusted depending on what stage of pregnancy you are at, and how it looks good,but is also practical. Perfect for windy and rainy Scottish days! Great design!
A great jacket for the Swiss Alps!
Having struggled to find a waterproof and breathable jacket in advance of a hiking holiday to the Swiss Alps, I was pleased and relieved when I came across the Mother&Nature website. I received a quick and efficient service and was delighted with the quality, colour and clever design of the jacket that arrived in the post. The side zips and internal poppers allow you to alter the size of the jacket to fit around your growing bump, whilst the drawstring at the bottom keeps you nice and cosy! I put the jacket through its paces whilst on holiday as I got caught at the top of a mountain in torrential rain and thunder and lightning. I got soaked through to the skin literally everywhere except for my top half which was covered up by the jacket. I did not expect the maternity jacket to be able to withstand these extreme conditions (which many of the well-known hiking brands would have struggled with) but it was absolutely brilliant. I cannot recommend this jacket enough and it’s lovely to be able to support a UK company who have designed such a great product. The added benefit of the design is that I can continue to wear my jacket post-birth as I can gradually alter the size as I return to my pre-pregnancy figure. My only regret is not buying this jacket sooner!
Stylish Trousers for a Professional Dog Trainer
I have been pleasantly surprised with how much I like the out door trousers that I have just purchased. I’m always a little hesitant about buying clothing of the Internet however I have been extremely pleased with the comfort and fit of the trousers. I work out doors as a professional dog trainer in all weather and found them to be just what I need. They are well worth the money! Quality product, stylish and well fitting with lots of room for growth!!
Great jacket for The Netherlands
I’ve had such a difficult time finding simple and practical maternity clothes. Everything also seems to be black, grey, or navy blue. I was thrilled (and that’s no exaggeration) to finally find Mother and Nature’s beautiful green waterproof jacket. It’s exactly what I was looking for. I’m 33 weeks pregnant and stopped being able to zip up my maternity winter coat weeks ago but I live in the Netherlands and still need a warm coat for a couple of months yet. I received wonderful customer service when I was inquiring about sizes and an exchange. Now that I have the right size, I’m thrilled with Mother and Nature’s gorgeous, well made coat. Thank you so so much! It’s lovely to wear something that fits and is beautiful.
Jennifer, The Netherlands
This maternity jacket is the best maternity item I bought for pregnancy, and I still wear it now and my son has just turned 1! Its the most well thought out product for pregnancy and afterwards. Its amazing quality, a beautiful fit, and I feel really chic in it, especially when compared with other coats on the market, maternity or not!
Lovely fleece, great idea to have the zips for an ever expanding tummy but also great to wear afterwards too. Very comfy & surprisingly warm too…….
Hill Walker Review
I was keen to carry on hill walking for as long as I could whilst pregnant. The jacket and fleece were invaluable whilst tackling Ullscarf in the wind and rain at 6 months pregnant!
The jacket has all the features of a jacket twice the price like gear pockets and an adjustable hood but the best thing about it are the side zips.
I also had the fleece. I wasn’t sure about spending money on a fleece but I wore it all the time I was pregnant and months afterwards. The zips are so clever.
Also love the fact the clothes are British made . You can see the quality.

Great Maternity Walking Trousers
When I became pregnant and my bump started to show, I was surprised by the lack of outdoor clothes for expecting mothers. After thoroughly searching the internet I finally found Mother&Nature. The maternity walking trousers have been super useful throughout the pregnancy, thanks to the expandable side patches, and also came in handy during the first few months after delivery before I could get into my old clothes. The material is really durable and overall I think these trousers are good value for money. I was very happy with both size and model of the trousers. Thank you so much for the great service you provided. I found the trousers really useful and will certainly recommend them to my friends.
Great Jacket for Baby Wearing
I am so pleased with my Mother and Nature jacket. I wasn’t sure about buying a jacket for pregnancy because we were watching our funds, but I really needed a waterproof to cover my bump in my outdoor life, including daily dog walks! Despite having a summer baby, I wore it all the time. It works both for outdoors stuff and also for trips to town etc in inclement weather as it looks very smart on. The fit was fantastic while I was pregnant with the zips fully open at my biggest. And I still wear it all the time now since having my daughter as the sides neatly zip down and it’s a great waterproof. I don’t know if the jacket was made for baby carriers, but I can also close the jacket over my baby now at 3 months in her carrier, so just her head and shoulders are popping out of the top, which is fantastic when we’re out with the dog in colder weather. And it’s a lot less expensive than jackets designed to be worn with baby carriers! Thanks so much Mother and Nature, your jacket has been (and continues to be) wonderful!
Great jacket, great service!
I ordered the waterproof
I took the plunge and ordered the maternity jacket, I messaged them also just to find out how long delivery takes because I wanted it in time for my trip to the Berlin Christmas markets, I had a reply within 30 mins! The jacket arrived in 3 days and I couldn’t wait to try it out. I am over the moon with the jacket! It’s true to size, and I love the fact that I would be able to wear the jacket after baby too because of the added side zips. There’s plenty of space for my bump to grow and when the zips are down the jacket is back to pre pregnancy size and snug. The material is really good quality, sure to keep the rain out and the hood is a nice shape (not too big like most coats). The added velcro fastening on the cuffs are brilliant for if you prefer them tight to keep the cold out like me. Overall brilliant jacket! Even if it wasn’t in the sale I would still pay full price, it’s well worth the money and you won’t be disappoint
I can’t wait to wear it taking baby for walks when he/she arrives as well! Thanks Mother & Nature x
Fantastic Quality Fleece
Excellent for walking!
Great Gear for hitting the hills

Great coat for getting out with my daughter
I bought this jacket when I was 20 weeks pregnant with my second child. My 3 year old daughter loves getting out and about at the park and going for walks, so I knew I needed something that was going to be practical and weatherproof, especially living in rainy Preston! I didn’t want to spend a lot, so I was really happy when I found the Mother & Nature jacket, a bit more than I wanted to spend, but its going to be perfect for getting out with the pram and my daughter in the coming winter months!

Fantastic jacket for pregnancy & beyond!
From around 30 weeks pregnant I couldn’t find a waterproof coat which fitted me. My bump was just too big, and none of the big names in outdoor clothing catered for me as a pregnant woman, keen to stay active all the way through pregnancy. So I was delighted to discover Mother & Nature, which meets this need brilliantly. I bought a waterproof jacket in green, which proved to be a real life-saver. The jacket is completely waterproof, breathable and stylish, in a stunning shade of green which has drawn many compliments. It fitted me throughout my pregnancy all the way up to week 41 when I gave birth, due to its extendable side panels, which can be unzipped as much as you require. Having now had my son I continue to wear my Mother & Nature waterproof coat, with the side panels fully zipped up so it fits my post pregnancy body. Mother & Nature provides an excellent, friendly and personal service, satisfying an active pregnant woman’s desire to get out for walks just as she did before becoming pregnant, in so doing helping mother and child stay as fit and healthy as possible. I couldn’t recommend the Mother & Nature and its clothing highly enough.
Jacket fit for a Vet!
I loved wearing both the coat and fleece throughout my pregnancy, it was very exciting the day I had to unzip the sides as my stomach had grown so much! It meant I was able to get out and about with my dog, and working as a vet, and not feel like I was wearing a tent to keep warm. Estela, Wiltshire
These walking trousers were great for getting out with the dog while pregnant, now I’ve had my baby they’re even better while trying to lose baby weight and taking out my new beautiful baby boy Thomas in the pram while walking the dog! Thanks for the great service Sam 🙂
Jo – Not a Frumpy Mum
As with many of the Mother & Nature customers, they’re not buying the range to hike up mountains (although some are) they’re pregnant women, who may already have a children, plus a dog or two, so getting outside is not an option, its a must. The weather these last few months hasn’t been great either, so the need to get wrapped up and protected from the elements for yourself and bump is even more important. The Mother & Nature waterproof jacket is completely waterproof, with breathable material and a mesh lining, so you don’t overheat, and the fleece is made from microfibre fleece material, so it also offers warmth as well as making sure you don’t to get too hot, with the zip option at the front.
The whole range has expandable panels on the side so that the clothes can grow with your bump, then once baby is born you can zip the panels back down, and carry on wearing the items. That makes this range of maternity wear the most cost effective you’ll every buy!
Digital Outdoor Review
The great thing about this range is that it will grow with you. It still looks flattering on a post-pregnancy body (I had a friend try!), and that’s a real bonus considering you don’t want to spend out a lot of money on something to last you only a few months.
The jacket is a big step forward in a market with no alternatives. It’d make a great addition to any mother-to-be’s wardrobe and, unlike all your other maternity clothes, it won’t need to be thrown out after 9 months.

Happy dog walking customer!
My coat is perfect for walking the dog – the weather is awful at the minute and bump and I stay dry! My coat is also perfect for working at a school where I spend a lot of time outside rain or no rain. It’s grown as my bump has grown and now at 35 weeks I need as much space as I can get! I’m so happy to have a coat that is as durable as this one, it not only provides the much needed space but will also slims down to fit after baby arrives perfect for pram and (more) dog walks.
I bought a waterproof jacket at the Baby Show…
I bought a waterproof jacket at the Baby Show in London, and so glad I did, or rather my dog is! I am now able to get on some decent walks at the weekend, dry and comfortably!
Thanks, Adele x
I recently purchased a waterproof jacket…
I recently purchased a waterproof jacket and walking trousers and can honestly say that I have never been more comfortable in recent weeks. With this horrendous winter weather that has hit us, it looks like I got there just in time! Thanks Sam 😉
