3 Versatile Workwear Pieces
As women we all have those wardrobe meltdowns where nothing we see appeals to us anymore, whether it’s because there has been a change in seasons, we’ve had the same clothes for a long time or they have simply gone out of fashion.
When pregnant you cruise along nicely and then all of a sudden over night BAM you’re out of the ‘everything I wear still fits’ stage to the ‘oh no, I have nothing to wear' stage and the meltdown starts all over again.
Working whilst pregnant can be just as challenging in the wardrobe department but if you’re smart, buying a few versatile maternity pieces can transform your wardrobe for not only work but many a casual occasion as well.
As we head into the cold season, the Noppies Julie Ruched Dress is perfect for the office or a night out. Simply add a jacket for a sophisticated corporate look or team it with tights and boots for a night out. The great thing about this dress is its versatility. Perfect!
You can’t go past the Floressa Luca Foldover Skirt as one of your key items. Made of jersey material, the skirt has a fold over waistband, a straight style cut, with an overlocked hem. With it’s versatile waistband this skirt can be worn over belly or folded under bump. A change in top or blouse can transform this piece from your standard corporate workwear to casual day wear and glam it up an evening out.
My third favourite staple has to be a pair of comfortable pants. The Floressa Dion Skinny Pants are again perfect for the office or a movie with the girls. With a sleek tailored look and foldover waitband for comfort, you’ll love the number of options this one piece gives you. Whether it be heels or flats, casual top or blouse, this will fast become one of your favourite items during pregnancy and beyond.

Understanding the Stages of Pregnancy
The human gestation period is approximately 40 weeks in duration, divided into three trimesters. Specific foetal developments occur in each of the trimesters and a pregnancy is deemed to be full-term at 40 weeks.
Changes: for the infant and mother
During each of the trimesters, important changes and developments occur for the developing baby and its mother. As the baby grows and the mother’s body changes to accommodate and nurture the infant, maternity clothing is needed and, following the baby’s birth, many women then need suitable breastfeeding clothes.

Eating Well During Pregnancy
During pregnancy you don’t have to eat mountains of food – although you may need a little extra than you would normally. The important thing is to get the right nutrition for yourself and your developing bub, and eat enough kilojoules to meet your energy requirements. As well as adequate vitamins and minerals, you may need more of a few particular nutrients – iron, folate (folic acid), and iodine.
