Finding a solid winter coat is a challenge at the best of times.
When a growing baby bump is added to the mix, finding the perfect coat might seem like an impossible dream. We know the struggle, but rest assured you don't have to sacrifice style or comfort to stay warm this winter.
The right maternity coat will help prepare you for all of the chilly fun that comes with being pregnant during winter in Britain. Your maternity winter coat should keep you warm, dry and looking fabulous whilst you and bump tackle the cold weather.
It's great to see how many maternity brands and options there are available, however, the massive choice can make finding the option that is right for you a mammoth task. We want to make sure you're prepared for winter with the coats you need for every occasion. We've put together this list that features the best coats for pregnant women ranging from rain jackets to coats for fancy nights out.
The best maternity coat will be designed to fit you during pregnancy and beyond so that you can get the most out of your spend. Ideally, the coat will have a panel that can be added to accommodate your baby sling once your baby is born. The coat should be made of the appropriate materials to keep you warm and we highly rate coats that are made of water resistant materials.
Keeping you and bump warm isn't the only important work your coat must perform. It also needs to fit well and make you feel good, letting you enjoy your pregnancy with style.
We're sure this list contains the perfect maternity coat for every expecting mother and to help you find more comfort and style during your pregnancy and beyond, we've also listed the best pregnancy pillows and the best nursing chairs and rockers.
