I was so excited to write this post when I received Lauren's photos of her clothing line for New Moms! These aren't the typical pieces that are loose, baggy, and ill-fitting. Vida Leche Amor is cut to fit and flatter a woman's shape during the entire breastfeeding relationship, not just the immediate postpartum period. Many of their styles are also pregnancy-compatible.
The Nightingale Night Nurses is owned by Kristin. She is also the creator of the Birth Bag - a collection of practical tools for pregnancy, labor, and postpartum care. Not only is it helpful, but it's really cute too. I want to buy one just for the bag!
Liz and Lindsay own Rising Tide Women's Whole Life Wellness which serves Cape Cod, the South Shore, and Boston. They offer a whole menu of prenatal classes, including HypnoBirthing, more 'traditional' childbirth prep classes, breastfeeding and newborn care preparation, and pretty much anything else you can think of, all served with a fervent belief in the sacredness of birth and also with an irreverent sense of humor.
Pregnant Moms and new Moms-to-be...This post is for you! Ashleigh owns Massage Loft New England in Pembroke and says it is the "perfect little escape that offers new moms and mothers to be a place to leave their worries behind, have no one to take care of, with the only goal for an hour or more being relaxation, deep breathing, and rejuvenating." Who wouldn't want that?
Jess owns light and lotus - an essential oil company that caters to Moms, Babies and Kids. Located in Boston, she is happy to have you come to a class, but she also offers one on one consults in person or over the phone!
