The foundation of any seasonal wardrobe, a winter coat is an investment piece but a maternity option does not need to be entirely separate from what you would traditionally wear. There are a range of warm and wearable coats that will take you seamlessly from pre to post pregnancy, whether you are expecting or chasing your toddler around the park.

Expectant mothers and new mothers alike can choose between wrap coats, puffas, parkas and trenches with pieces that are as stylish as they are practical – just look to the innovative baby-carrying options from Séraphine and Jojo Maman Bébé.
