Here at the urbanmoms.ca Marketplace, it’s our mission to bring you
stories of great Canadian mom-based businesses. This week, we’re
thrilled to bring you Cheryl’s story:
While pregnant with my second daughter I was amazed that fashionable yet affordable maternity clothes still did not exist in Toronto. I had searched during pregnancy #1, forced to wear clothes that were not my style. Second time around I continued the struggle to find something that remained true to my style while pregnant. I came up empty handed and swore I would open up my own store. As the prospect of returning to work was fast approaching the idea of the maternity store continued to intrigue me and I began researching manufacturers and styles that I wanted to wear. Six months later "my Bump Maternity" was born!
Now my third child, a boy, comes to work with me and has quite the set up here at the store. I was able to wear lots of my fashions and try on many others. Having a store as one’s personal closet is a girl’s dream come true. The "research" proved very beneficial as I was able to critique the manufacturers and lines that I carry and have adapted my collection to carry those manufacturers who better understand an expectant mom’s figure.
At my Bump Maternity we offer fashion-forward maternity wear from celebrated international manufacturers that will celebrate you are your bump! Be proud and show off your Bump!
