On November 9th Glow Maternity hosted their very first Mama Market and I along with many other Moms had the pleasure of attending! This was an awesome way to showcase the lovely Moms who make in Peterborough and it was a huge success. The atmosphere was not like any show I have ever attended! We had comfy couches to relax on, babies, moms and dads everywhere and an all around relaxing energy about the day! I cannot wait to be part of her next event.

If you haven’t checked out Glow Maternity yet, you should! The shop is part of The Loft Peterborougha place to relax, meet moms, do yoga and reconnect with yourself. The Glow Maternity shop houses gifts for new moms, babies and little ones along with a incredible offering of maternity clothing and needs. To make this shop even better the owner Shaunacy is a Doula so you are in good hands when you walk into her shop!

Take a look at my shots below of some of my newest displays and items. Lots of new goodies to see!
