Swimsuit Guide: For Expecting Moms, New Moms & Babies

July 5, 2017

Moms, your bodies are miracles. Seriously, the ability to bring life into this world is amazing, and there is absolutely no shame in any part of the process of pregnancy, including the changes your body goes through. That being said, change in general is simply uncomfortable. Just like a new haircut that takes time to get used to, you might not feel like yourself for a while during pregnancy and after you give birth as notice the changes in your body, especially in a swimsuit where the changes are more visible. Begin embracing your strong, changed body by jumping right back into your usual hobbies and activities, including spending time at the pool or beach in the summer. Here are some very cute and functional swimsuits for pregnant moms, new moms, and those perfect little babies your incredible body just created.
