How To Support A New Mom Or Mom-To-Be With Maternity Lingerie

Another fantastic column from Slip of a Girl, this one on maternity lingerie.

When you’re pregnant, the world thinks they can touch you. It’s good luck, they say; most of us who’ve been there, been patted like that, think it’s yucky and invasive. (Especially when they won’t give you their seat on the bus, but still rub your belly; too-true story.) If they’re so worried about “luck” why do they tell expecting women horror stories about difficulties and what can happen to you and your body?

And then there are the stereotypes of hormonal women who either cry or respond angrily to “everything.” Who wouldn’t be upset by the rudeness of a stranger touching them? Or “helpful advice” about what’s going to happen to your body? Who wants to hear all the supposedly good-natured comical statements, like “My, look how big you are!” (And don’t even get me started on the comments about you donating all your pre-pregnancy clothes “because you’ll never fit in those again.”
