Guest Blog: Chelsea O’Brien’s guide to Maternity Fashion!

At EMP, we work with lots of talented bloggers covering all genres from alternative fashion and Rock & Metal to Harry Potter , Disney and superheroes . Now it would be selfish to keep these talents to ourselves and didn’t share them with our lovely readers!

Today’s blog is a special one because it’s covering our lovely influencer Chelsea O’Brien’s (aka: @MummaBabyDoll ) pregnancy journey and what she wore to stay both comfortable and on brand with her awesome image! Without further ado, lets kick off Chelsea’s blog post!

2 Weeks

It’s late o’clock in the day and I’ve just finished up my daily routine of streaming to my nearly 40k followers on Twitch. For the past few years my job has been sitting at a desk making my way up into the Entertainment business, however today I got news that the next 9 months are going to be completely different. My apartment is going to be accident proofed, my mood swings are going to be crazy but more worryingly, my wardrobe is going to change. All the new clothes from EMP that I only just received for Christmas are no longer going to fit because today I found out…

I’m finally pregnant.

12 Weeks

I’m finally showing – my wardrobe needs an emergency makeover. I turn on my computer and Google: emp.co.uk and do a quick search for ‘Maternity Fashion’. I’ve been a loyal customer of EMP for 4 years now, even wearing their clothes in my first magazine feature.

As expected, a variety of fashionable maternity clothes stare back at me with all their unique ‘growing room’ abilities. Pregnancy can be difficult for a lot of women due to the changes it makes to your body. Many of my friends that have had children expressed that they needed to keep buying new clothes over and over again because “Maternity Clothes are uncomfortable and easy to grow out of.”

I’ve never had a problem with uncomfortable clothes from EMP, which is why I am here now looking at their website for the clothes that I would be wearing for the next 6 months. I pick out my first three tops:

Ultrasound Metal Hand Baby

Cool Mom t-shirt

It`s Not For Me! It`s For The Baby!

“Cool” Mom is an understatement – I’m also “Comfy” Mom and “Why would anyone go anywhere else for their Maternity Clothes” Mom. I didn’t need to worry about comfort or size with these tops, they fit and feel perfect.

My close friend just found out that she’s pregnant too – I know exactly what I’m getting her for her birthday.

20 Weeks

It’s time for our ‘Gender Reveal’ party. I’ve just received a package in the post that has my party attire folded neatly away inside. I can’t wait to see the reactions of my friends and family when they find out what I’m having.

I appear downstairs wearing my Which Gender? Boy or Girl? T-shirt . I’m proud to show off my top as everyone keeps complimenting me about my fashion. “Comfort and looks good?!” one of my friends exclaimed. They can’t believe the quality in just a single item of clothing – wait until they see my wardrobe…

34 Weeks

It’s the spookiest night of the year! I’m pairing up with my little girl, Rhivér for our joint Halloween costume. Using my Baby On Board long-sleeve shirt , partnered with some spooky face paint, we quickly become the highlight of the party.

38 Weeks

It’s almost time. I look to my side and see my ‘Hospital Bag’ all packed and ready to go with all the essentials, including our little girl’s first outfit. My emotions are all over the place but I’m mostly filled with excitement. Excited to get back to my normal size (mainly so I can explore all the new outfits that EMP have released this year), excited to be able to touch my toes for the first time in months but of course, I’m mostly excited to come home with another member of my growing family.

EMP’s Maternity clothing has made such a positive impact in my life this year, making this pregnancy 10x more comfortable for me. The worry of having a new wardrobe was blown out of existence as soon as I received my first 2 tops. By this point, I own over 70% of EMP’s Maternity and baby/kids merchandise.

Even my ‘Going Home’ clothes include a Bambi jumper and Varsity jacket to match my daughters first outfit. We’re going to make a great looking pair as we take our first steps out into the World together.

Thank you, EMP.
