  • The Maternal America Cheryl Maternity Swimwear

    The Maternal America Cheryl maternity swimwear is new for the Spring 2013 season. It comes in a cool and refreshing mint color for some extra flare whether at the beach or by the poolside. The top has a small halter tie to add support but you can easily wear it strapless. Just take that tie and make a bow out of it. Up or down it has real style and elan.

    The top is ruched at the middle between the cups. There's a slight conture under the slightly padded cups which will give you a bit of a lift.The bottoms are ties at the side. It's a great feature to help keep pace with your growing figures.

  • Maternity Leave Policy Around The World -- US Is Not The Best.

    Have you ever wondered what the maternity or parental leave policies are in the rest of the world? If you are in the United States, then there is a 95% chance that it is better than what you are currently getting.

    In fact, about 2/3rds of the countries in the world pay out 100% of your salary for a given period of time. May of these countries have the government picking up the bill, according to the International Labour Organization

    Most countries allow for paid leave for 12 to 16 weeks. Australia allows for up to 1 year but it comes at the price of not being paid. The US hits the norm at 12 weeks but that too is without any guaranteed pay.

    Studies have shown that there are benefits to keeping new parents happy by retaining them through leave. It often costs as much as 50 to 200% of an employees salary to replace them. Google extended their leave policy from 3 months to 5 and the new mother fallout rate dropped by half.

    While it may seem counter-intuitive to pay for a new parent's time off to spend with their child, it does end up making good economic sense for the employer with the added benefit of having a happier family.

  • Kate Rocks Her Bump!

    In her first public engagement since announcing her pregnancy in December, Kate Middleton visited the Action on Addiction center Hope House yesterday in South London. During her visit the Duchess of Cambridge opened up about her difficult morning sickness and bonded with one expectant mother, Natalie, who was receiving treatment at the center.

    Natalie, 28, who is expecting her second child in July, just like the Duchess, shared her conversation with Kate with The Mirror. Natalie said: "We're due about the same time. She's been unwell and feeling better now and I felt pretty much the same the first time."

    Speaking to the Duchess she said: "This is my road to recovery. When I was in addiction, my life was in complete darkness and then gets a lot brighter."

    With Kate replying: "Well done to you for getting sober."

    Afterwards Natalie said: "I've got to say I'm sober and clean. When I was in the darkness I never thought that would happen."

    Kate’s visit was to raise awareness for the charity, of which the Duchess is patron, but the Kate’s beautiful appearance with her growing baby bump in a Max Mara wrap dress stole the show.

    Chief Executive of the charity, Nick Barton said Kate was very well received by the women at the Center: "She was wonderful with the clients. They fell in love with her. They opened up to her.

    "She's such an easy person that they were talking to her in a very comfortable way, and I think surprised themselves at how easy that she made it for them. She seemed in good spirits, in good health, and very comfortable."

  • The Prego Maternity Swimwear Laguna Halter Baby Doll

    The Prego Maternity Swimwear Laguna Halter Baby Doll is a colorful variation on the classic baby doll currently sold by TummyStyle.com in basic black and brown.

    The blue and aquamarine color of the tropical flowers with their yellow accents is calm and elicits a feeling of being on a Hawaiian Island lounging about while the ocean waves lap at your feet and the cool breeze plays with your hair.

    Like all the baby dolls, this maternity swimsuit has a longer top skirt that provides more than sufficient coverage across the top of the bell and then down below the bikini bottoms.

    The extra wide straps are adjustable and provides some of the best bust support you will find anywhere. The cups are lightly padded. There is more than enough room at the skirt to allow for your ever expanding belly -- even at the 9 month mark!

  • Maternal America Skinny Ankle Maternity Jeans

    Who says a maternity jean must be boring? Just because you are pregnant doesn't mean you have to wear a pair of jeans with those awful cutout panels that go over your belly. Instead, look to the Maternal America Skinny Ankle Maternity Jeans in their great turquoise color. Put these pants on and people will wonder if you really are pregnant because they fit so well!

    They fit under your belly the same as the ever popular Maternal America Megan Jeans and have a wide elastic waist band to keep them from falling down. Unlike other jeans, these pair are so comfortable that you will never want to take them off.

    The pant legs taper down at the ankle to give that nice fitted and slenderizing look. Pair with a nice baby cap T-shirt and you are ready to hit the town with your girlfriends.

    What's more, many of our customers like these jeans so much that they continue to wear them even after their pregnancy. It's really hard to tell that that you were wearing them while pregnant.

    At $92, they are a bargain and most likely will never make it to the laundry basket!

  • The Prego Maternity Bahama Nite Posh Swimwear

    The Prego Maternity Bahama Nite Posh swimwear will make you wish you were lying on a sandy beach looking up at the stars. It's a super comfortable maternity bathing suit with a rich brownish gold floral pattern on a black base. The styling, color and pattern will make your admirers think the suit is more expensive than it really is.

    The Bahama Nite posh maternity swimsuit comes with adjustable straps to help get your sizing right. The top is padded and very supportive with the wide straps which makes it a good option for the women bigger on top.

    The bottoms are black and fit below the belly. Like all Prego Maternity Swimwear, this suit is made really well!

  • Bikini Thief St Barts Maternity Swimwear

    One of the hottest maternity bathing suits out this season is the St Barts by Bikini Thief. This two piece maternity swimwear comes with bikini style bottoms and a ruched side top which allows you to make it snugger and show off more belly.

    What makes this bathing suit so popular is the incredibly detailed and embroidered pattern across the front of the top. It's an embellishment that will make others think you have just paid well over a hundred dollars though it's priced at only $75!

    The top is a wide tank strap style but unlike many of those pre-pregnancy suits, the back criss crosses to give you that extra support you need. An elastic band under the bust line helps to hold you in place. The top will show you off a bit but not so much that you need to be embarrassed.

    The Bikini Thief St Barts comes in Red and Black and is available in XS to Large.
