Which was your standard outfit during pregnancy?
A pair of jeans and a long T! And a jacket - always a jacket in San Fransisco.

Did you have any cravings during pregnancy?
I desperately wanted peaches, strawberries and grapes. Quite literally all I ate. That's what Elia is favoring now too!

What do you always take with you in the pram?
A baby carrier! Always! A blanket and a musical toy! Elia LOVES gentle lullabies.

What is the first thing you treat yourself to if you have a moment to yourself?
A good book and a cup of cappuccino. Those moments are necessary to recharge, even 15 minutes make a world of difference.

Which was the biggest change in your life when you became a mother?
I had no idea I can love someone this much. And also, I am amazed at how mother's heart works - it quite literally expands with each baby. No one ever have to share the space :)

What is the most comical situation that you have found yourself in during pregnancy or as a new mother?
Scrambling for anything and EVERYTHING to stop the milk flow when my first baby was just a couple of weeks old and I have missed a feeding by just a few minutes (away from home) and my milk didn't just leak, it sprayed all over. New mommies - be prepared!

 

Your Top 5 favorites in Boob’s fall/winter 16 collection?

1. Uma dress
It is so effortlessly chic, it's a perfect solution for any day: playtime with the baby, date-afternoon with a husband or a coffee meeting with a colleague.

2. Simone top
I can't live without stripes. It's a classic that goes with everything, makes even simple jeans look great and makes me look put together the moment I put it on. Last business trip to New Zealand all I brought were my Simone tops. They saved the day!

3. Rib knitted jumper
It's a must for fall! Both colors are so rich and cozy, it just calls for a cup of hot cocoa (or coffee) , a book and a few enjoyable hours to yourself.

4. Fast Food Bra
It's a fantastic asset for any nursing mom. Gives just enough support but does not put pressure on the very sensitive tissues thus preventing the clogged ducts (which can be so painful ...)

5. One of each of the ruched tops and classic tops in EVERY color.
I have to write them all because those are THE most flattering and well-cut tops I've ever seen. Yes, nursing-style, but the design is so elegant, it will last for years to come. The tops are long enough to cover the pregnant belly, fit very flattering on the post-partum body and are absolutely great on a recovered body as well. They layer perfectly under anything and have the absolute space in my wardrobe!

Live: Edmonton, Canada

Which is your standard outfit during pregnancy?
Dresses, dresses, and more dresses. So easy to throw on and see polished while staying comfortable.

Do you have any cravings during pregnancy?
Unfortunately with both pregnancies i had hyperemisis or HG. Let's just say food isn't my friend.

What do you always take with you in the pram?
I love to have two blankets: one light and one warm. Wipes, diapers and an extra outfit. Because you never know what could happen.

What is the first thing you treat yourself to if you have a moment to yourself?
A fancy coffee or a new lipstick.

Which was the biggest change in your life when you became a mother?
My breakup with uninterrupted sleep. It was an adjustment.

What is the most comical situation that you have found yourself in during pregnancy or as a new mother?
My current toddler rarely has tantrums but an epic one was in a very public place. I still remember all the looks of either laughter or "hang in there mama" I received as we slowly made our way to the car. 30 minutes later with what is a 4 minute walk. You can imagine.

 

Your Top 5 favorites in Boob’s fall/winter 16 collection?

1. Rib knitted jumper
Perfect fall transition piece.

2. Windblocker Fleece
Incorporates everything I love about the Athleisure trend.

3. Knitted dress - Striped
Dress up or down with the new chilly weather.

4. Top long sleeve - Dotted
Gotta love a polka top.

5. Dress Uma
Most comfortable dress ever!

Family: Husband, 2 children (Micha 9 months, Sam 2 1/2) and 2 cats
Live: Gotland

Which was your standard outfit during pregnancy?
Dresses every day! You don't feel squashed in a dress and it's easy to dress up or down. During my first pregnancy I spent a lot of time in offices and in meetings, so Boob's dresses with a jacket on top worked perfectly. My second pregnancy was in the winter and dressing was a bit more difficult, but loose suit trousers with a wide panel across the belly worked well. Maternity jeans have never been anything for me.

Did you have any cravings during pregnancy?
Tropicana apple juice. Several litres per week.

What do you always take with you in the pram?
Besides necessities such as nappies, dummies, etc., I always bring cars for Sam and a spare jumper for myself, since you easily get sticky and messy…

What is the first thing you treat yourself to if you have a moment to yourself?
Funny you should ask; just now I have  40 minutes to myself, since the baby is asleep and his brother is at preschool. In front of me is a large cup of freshly brewed coffee and two slices of sesame crispbread with avocado (lunch time). I love to work, so it's a bit of a  “treat” to spend time in front of the computer, clear away some e-mails, and communicate with the whole world from this motherhood bubble.

Which was the biggest change in your life when you became a mother?
Life took on a completely new meaning, the insight that you manage damn near everything, as long as you stay positive.  

What is the most comical situation that you have found yourself in during pregnancy or as a new mother?
It must be now, when Sam is out of nappies but can't always hold it until we find a toilet. All these parkering areas, roadsides, back streets where he has peed. Not very glamorous, and a sense of humour is required.  Like when he came to preschool and told the others that he had pooed in the parking area and mummy had forgotten to pick it up... Funny, you stand there cringing and then slink away with a little bag, hoping that nobody notices.

 

Your Top 5 favorites in Boob’s fall/winter 16 collection?

1. Dress Wrap
I would wear this dress in the office, easy to dress up or down.

2. Rib knitted jumper
Perfect for chilly autumn days with a pair of cool jeans.

3. Once-on-never-off loose pants - Leo
Couch potato time! Pants that let the belly free, perfect during all of pregnancy. Super soft and comfortable.

4. Once-on-never-off ruched skirt
You can never have too many black skirts. This one is perfect after the birth too, before you can get into your ’old’ wardrobe.

5. Fast Food Bra - Free
The best nursing bra on the market, so soft and comfortable!

@yogajohanna
JIRA/Johanna Andersson
Age: 33
Background: Self employed within fitness, yoga and education.
Family: Partner Andreas, Leonie 3 1/2 and Jacquline 4 months.
Live: Göteborg

Which was your standard outfit during pregnancy?
Tights!!!! I don't know how I would have managed  if I couldn't have walked around in tights at work, haha. Either low cut, wide panel, or those that you wear over the bump. It was easy to dress the tights up or down with a yoga singlet or party shirt and jewellery.

Did you have any cravings during pregnancy?
Tomatoes and they had to be room temperature, haha. I cut them and sprinkled them with sea salt and sometimes olive oil. Normally, I have a sweet tooth but during both pregnancies I've had enormous cravings for vegetables, preferably raw.

What do you always take with you in the pram?
Neither my partner nor I are good at giving our children comforters, dummies or cosy toys. I guess we've missed the first months and then the children never became interested in them. The most important thing that we always use is a little curtain that we hang across the pram. It gives shade but still lets in air. And it's easier for our little girl to fall asleep if she doesn't see us :)

What is the first thing you treat yourself to if you have a moment to yourself?
To stretch, a little like a cat :) I have yoga mats rolled out here and there at home, to make it easier to get going. I tell myself that I'm just going to do the dog pose for a few minutes and then I might end up doing a whole session if the baby is asleep or content.

Which was the biggest change in your life when you became a mother?
The realiseation that More is More. I thought it was so lovely to change focus from myself, my business and my own personal development onto someone else. That someone other than I was at the centre. When I was expecting our second child, I couldn't imagine that I would love someone else as much as Leonie. When it was time to push and the midwife said that I would soon have a baby on my chest, I wasn't really interested in another baby, because I had Leonie. And when Jacquline came to us, love grew. It turned out that there was even more love to give and receive. This is why I can honestly feel that MORE is MORE,  we just have to think about several levels in life. We don't have to compete, there's room for everyone!

What is the most comical situation that you have found yourself in during pregnancy or as a new mother?
This happened during both pregnancies: My fiancé and I were sitting in the sofa, I was around seven months pregnant. We talked about the future and I started to really cry and said: "We have NOTHING to look forward to!!!" Just at that time, I was so tired of not being able to train as I wanted, drink wine, eat good cheeses or go ty New York for the weekend. I felt confined and trapped and thought it was unfair that he could carry on eating, exercising and travelling as much as he wanted. Fortunately, he held me tight (both times) and said: "DARLING, it's okay!!!" It was so lovely that he was there for me and listened through my mood swings :)

 

Your Top 5 favorites in Boob’s fall/winter 16 collection?

1. Fast Food Sports bra
Before this sports bra, I nursed and trained in my ordniary sports bras, which ended with me nursing with breasts squeezed under hard elastic; neither practical nor comfortable! This bra gives amazing support, I can wear it all day, so that when my little girl sleeps I can train without having to change!

2. Fast Food T-Shirt bra
What would you do without this? It's just as obvious as a pair of briefs. Attractive, comfortable and still wears well after hundreds of washes.

3. Knitted sweater - Merino wool
My greatest fear is mastitis, and it's not so easy when you are in, out, and in again with a 3 1/2-year-old running about. This'll keep me both warm and ventilated :)

4. Wrap dress
After tights, dress is my favourite garment. I've had to restrain myself so many times lately when I've tried on a dress in the shops and have forced myself to realise - NO, I will not be able to use it for over a year. Nursing in a dress is not normally a hit (if you don't want to show off your briefs). Thank you BOOB for this version of  Diane Von Furstenberg's classic.

5. Fast Food singlet - Merino wool
Perfect basic, as it is or under a sweater. Also works perfectly to sleep in! This way you can reduce your packing when you go off on a weekend. I love multi-use garments.

Which is your standard outfit during pregnancy?
During both pregnancies I wore a lot of dresses rather than jeans, I just found them more comfy!

Do you have any cravings during pregnancy?
Not really, apart from chocolate - but I always eat lots of chocolate, pregnant or not!

What do you always take with you in the pram?
Diapers, a dummy - and that's it. I've never had a big diaper bag.

What is the first thing you treat yourself to if you have a moment to yourself?
Reading the newspaper!

Which was the biggest change in your life when you became a mother?
Hardly any time to read the newspaper? And less time generally. And less sleep. And less time for myself. But more love!

What is the most comical situation that you have found yourself in during pregnancy or as a new mother?
When the postman said: oh I can tell you're having a girl, they always make you grow so broad. And I was like: (looking at his belly): so you're carrying a girl, too?


Your Top 5 favorites in Boob’s fall/winter 16 collection?

1. Dress Uma
A wonderful dress, simple and special at the same time. I would wear it in the exact combination as the model with neon-socks and loafers.

2. Simone top
Stripes just always work! And the ones from Boob captivate with the amazing quality and the nursing-function of course is amazing!

3. Rib knitted jumper
A darkblue sweater is a classic. Great quality.

4. Dress 50/50
Is this a beautiful dress or what? I’m sure I’m going to wear it after I’m finished nursing.

5. Knitted jumper - Striped
And again, stripes are always a good idea! And the dark blue is fantastic!

Which was your standard outfit during pregnancy?
Kimono on top of almost everything, over jeans and top or over a simple dress. Always pretty and flattering!

Did you have any cravings during pregnancy?
I loved simple things like fishfingers and mashed potatoes, or just pasta with ketchup.

A bottle of water and some lipbalm, I´m always thirsty and I like smooth lips. And of course my phone is never missing.

What is the first thing you treat yourself to if you have a moment to yourself?
A massage or a pedicure/manicure.

Which was the biggest change in your life when you became a mother?
To feel that kind of love I never felt before. And I don't rush anymore or be stressed about anything. Life slowed down and I love it.

What is the most comical situation that you have found yourself in during pregnancy or as a new mother?
While I was pregnant I regulary forgot where I parked the car. Once it went so far that I called the police. And now since I am a mother I can’t remember who I told what... So this creates pretty funny moments on a regular basis.

 

Your Top 5 favorites in Boob’s fall/winter 16 collection?

1. Rib knitted jumper
Dark blue is my favorite color and easy to combine. And the warm knit is perfect for the colder days.

2.  Fast Food Bra - Free

Perfect, nursing-friendly Fall-dress and easy to style and mix with other items.

Great combination of different materials and perfect for the colder time of year.

It looks comfortable and yet fashionable – perfect even for after nursing since you can’t see the overlap with the nursing opening.
