Gone are the days when mums-to-be had to get around in a Homer Simpson-style muumuu during pregnancy. Maternity wear has evolved from shapeless sack-like garments into stylish items that can make pregnant women look and feel great, even when they are struggling.
But where do you find these stylish maternity clothes? And where can you buy nursing clothes in Perth? Here’s where you’ll find maternity and nursing clothing stores in and around Perth, plus some great online stores.
The Perth Mums Crochet Club meets fortnightly to learn crochet, meet other Perth mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
