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 breastfeed discreetly 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 range of British made maternity tops using bamboo and viscose fibre materials; the equivalent to cotton of what cashmere is to wool. For a super soft, gentle touch sensitive to both you and your baby, using plant / cellulose-based, raw material product has the added benefit of antibacterial, hypoallergenic and moisture absorbing properties.
Bamboo is also environmentally friendly, which is at the forefront of my values. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and thrives naturally without the use of pesticides and fertilisers. The chiffon outer layer provides the perfect nurturing environment for breastfeeding as its transparency allows for the checking of correct attachment, whilst maintaining the upmost discretion for you.
I hope you enjoy the products as much as I have making them,
