My mission and hope is to encourage pregnant women to keep wearing and doing what they love while pregnant. GONE ARE THE DAYS OF PREGNANCY RESTRICTIONS! During my 4th pregnancy I invented a product called Maeband, (named after my daughter Maely), to keep me wearing my favorite jeans throughout my pregnancy and postpartum. The Maeband is a much more stylish, functional and comfortable way to transform your regular jeans into maternity jeans by covering up the unbuttoned area and adding stretch to your waistband. It's also perfect for postpartum! Women want to keep wearing what they’ve always worn and keep doing what they’ve always done! I’m hoping to inspire and encourage that with my brand. I love supporting other small businesses and entrepreneurs, as I know how difficult it can be to start a small business.
