Maternity clothing 

Putting together a capsule wardrobe for your pregnancy is mostly about knowing your size. If you're a first-time mum-to-be (or just need a refresher), take a peek at our maternity wear buying guide.

Stylish, comfortable and designed to show off your bump, our maternity tops will have you looking and feeling fabulous right up to the big day. Your go-to essentials throughout your pregnancy, simply fill your wardrobe with basic tops in monochrome shades or going-out styles with pretty details like embroidery or a touch of sparkle. If you're looking for even more choice, why not peruse our range of maternity dresses too?

At mothercare, we tailor our designs to local pregnant mums to get the best fit for our maternity dresses. So you can be rest assured that you’ll look and feel wonderful all the way through to the big day. If you're wondering what apparel you might need when your due date arrives, we've got you covered with our hospital bag checklist too.

Take a look at our specially contoured maternity lingerie to create smooth form under your dresses. Nursing bras with drop down cups and wide shoulder straps are great for popping open when you need to feed on the go. When your due date draws nearer, sling on a casual dress over maternity leggings for the office, or pair it with supportive maternity tights for an evening out. Opaque tights will help carry your dress through the seasons, too. 

While your baby bump might be making the styling choices these days, there's no need to put fashion on the back burner. Pull on a pair of our comfy maternity trousers to inject a touch of smart style – or slouchy cool – back into your pregnancy wardrobe.

Our maternity bottoms collection wouldn't be complete without everyone's favourite weekend staple: jeans. Making your casual outfits bump-friendly is easy with our selection of designs that fit either under or over your expanding belly. Equally, they come in a range of classic washes and cuts including skinny and straight-leg. Not sure where to begin? We've put together a guide on how to choose maternity jeans so you can pick the perfect pair.

When the occasion calls for smart separates, have a look through our maternity trousers. Lightly tailored designs in dark neutrals help to keep you cool in the office before you head on maternity leave, and can be dressed up with a floaty blouse for fancy dinners.

If you're looking for a little relief from those niggling pregnancy aches, try taking a dip. Being in water can help to support your growing bump and soothe away discomfort. Treat yourself to a set of gorgeous maternity swimwear and plan for lots of time relaxing at the pool (you've earned it!). 

If you like the reassuring feel you get from pregnancy swimwear, try a maternity belt when you're back on dry land, which provides extra comfort and support. Maternity fitness doesn't need to stop with swimming. If your midwife is happy for you to carry on with your usual exercise regime or you're trying pregnancy yoga, have a look at our maternity active wear collection.
