Foxy Mama Maternity Wear

Pregnancy second time around is completely different. First time around I didn’t have a busy Tasmanian Devil toddler to focus on and because I got pregnant in October, having a baby the following year made it feel longer. At Christmas, we imagined what it would be like at the next Christmas. This time around I got pregnant in March and will have our baby in the same year. We weren’t thinking last Christmas that we would have another baby next Christmas, so it feels so much shorter and faster!

I also feel a lot bigger this time around – it’s partly because it’s common second time around, and I also have my Placenta that is more forward, pushing it all out. I personally love a big, round bump, visually – but I am very uncomfortable – already! It’s also not easy to do my radio show, when my lungs feel squashed and I need to use my diaphragm to talk. I feel conscious of sounding a little out of breath.

At 23 weeks pregnant (6 months) – time is flying!

While I can’t exactly change those things, I can change how I feel in my clothing. The last thing I want to feel is uncomfortable.

Liezel, from Foxy Mama kindly reached out to me and offered to send me some key items from her Maternity range.

I’m going to share the 3 looks.

1. Foxy Mama Navy Blue Maternity Pants

Let’s begin with the navy blue maternity pants (they come in black too.) I love that you can dress these up and down. Add a t-shirt and sneakers, or give it a more corporate feel like I have in these pics below.
They have a comfortable belly band and a subtle stitching on the front of the leg, which elongates and slims! I want to order these in black now.

2. Foxy Mama Floral Maternity Dress

I love a beautifully feminine dress and this one can be dressed up or down. Add heels, or wear sneakers / ballet pumps. It has a round neck with 3/4 sleeves and the dress fits just on the knees.

3. Foxy Mama Floral Mint Green Nursing Hoodie

This floral nursing friendly hoodie from will keep you warm and allow you to breastfeed discreetly. I really love the mint green colour and always get complimented when I wear it. It features a floral design hoodie and sleeves and has fleece on the inside to keep you warm in colder weather.
So how can you breastfeed in it? It has zips on either side so that you can nurse baby discreetly and still keep warm.  When you are done, simply zip back up and it looks like a seam. Genius.
This can comfortably be worn even if you’re not pregnant. The sizing is roomy, so if you prefer a more fitted look, take a size smaller.
It fits over your bum, so you can wear it with leggings and boots too.

Thank you so much Liezel for the beautiful clothes. I really appreciate it.

    Hi Bailey. You look gorgeous. So excited for you.
    Would you consider doing a round up of your favourite baby products for no 2. Things you loved with George and will be using again. Or new things you are going to use?
    It would be so lovely to see things from a South African perspective.
    Congrats again!
