About Lotus Maternity

Hello, I am Olivia and this is the story behind Lotus Maternity. Having studied Midwifery at the University of Nottingham, helping women to facilitate breastfeeding was always a passion of mine. So I set upon thinking how I could help not only the women I was caring for but also every other mother. I wanted to design a piece of clothing that enabled women to look and feel fantastic whilst breastfeeding discreetly and with confidence in public, without the use of muslin cloths or other materials to cover up.

From this Lotus Maternity was born.

Incorporating the ethos behind a lotus birth being 100% natural. Lotus Maternity has developed a premium, multi award-winning range of British made nursing tops using bamboo and viscose fibre materials; the equivalent to cotton of what cashmere is to wool. In using plant/ cellulose-based, raw material, we have created luxury clothing with a super soft, gentle touch sensitive to both you and your baby.

Bamboo is also environmentally friendly, which is at the forefront of my values. So you can feel confident in knowing you have made a conscious, ethical and sustainable purchase with any of our products. Whether you’re in need of the perfect newborn/ christening gift in our personalised bamboo baby blankets, described by The Independent as “something truly special”. Or coming soon for Summer 2020, our exquisite bamboo nursing nighties to provide a new mum with that comfortable night’s sleep she so desperately needs.

As a brand we are all about supporting mums and in February 2019 we thought about how we could help them further in a way that fits our strapline, 'designed by midwives for mothers’. From this we launched our extremely successful, award-winning postnatal support and education course, The Postnatal Plan. Read more about how we can help you navigate your way through the challenges that motherhood brings, alongside other friendly mums in your community experiencing the same highs and lows.

I hope you enjoy the products and services as much as I have creating them,
