Where to buy maternity clothes in Denver

Submitted by nikki on Mon, 10/26/2009 - 11:12

Most women probably don't want to spend an excessive amount of money on maternity clothes since they'll only be wearing them for a limited time, so it's helpful to know where to go.

  • The Gap Maternity located in the Cherry Creek Mall has the best maternity clothes I've come across for the best price. They also have large comfortable fitting rooms complete with a belly you can strap on to see if that shirt will still fit you when you're 9 months.
  • Ross Dress for Less has some good cheap maternity options, and has maternity clothes in all of their locations.

Away We Go: a Great Movie for Expectant Parents

Submitted by nikki on Mon, 09/28/2009 - 16:22

Away We Go is a perfect movie for slightly irreverent thirtysomethings embarking on the adventure parenthood. John Krasinski (Jim from The Office) and Maya Rudolph (from Saturday Night Live) are a couple who just found out they are unexpectedly having a baby, and start visiting friends and family around the US to decide where to move and raise their child.

Prenatal Yoga in Denver

Yoga is a great way to stay active during pregnancy and to open up those hips for birthing. It's also a great idea to practice at home, keeping in mind the following modifications to regular poses:

Yoga Modifications for Pregnancy

  • avoid doing too many twists
  • modify backbends: in poses like dancer, don't do the full backbend and instead focus on lifting out of your back. Pregnancy puts a lot of pressure on your back so you don't want to put any more.
  • stick to the left side. Try to avoid poses where you lay on your right side.
  • Modify savasana. Instead of laying on your back after 3 months, prop your back up with a bolster and bring the soles of your feet together so your legs make a diamond shape (sorry y'all, forgot what that one's called).

Apothecary Tinctura

I've driven past this place a million times on 6th Avenue and Franklin in Denver, and was finally prompted to go when I learned about their specialty in women's health through the Mountain Midwifery Center. When I stopped by, a knowledgeable herbalist recommended some supplements, tea, and essential oils and I perused the pregnant women and baby section. I could have spent hours in the store, but came away with:

  • EPA/DHA essentials supplement for brain development (you can also get DHA through eating fish, which I don't eat enough of)
  • Probiotic supplement: which you can also get by eating kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi.
