Cozy maternity & baby outfits to survive the winter
True Canadians know that to get through winter, you have to be prepared. Staying warm, learning to layer and having the right coat are key, but all those liners and shells can really break the bank - especially if the jacket you drop a pretty penny on is obsolete after only 9 months! Luckily, there are some coats on the market that have been designed to be versatile enough to be worn during pregnancy, as a new mum and even after your LO won't fit in the pouch anymore (literally). It seems that some designers don't understand that unless you're Kate Middleton you need to be able to get at least a couple seasons out of a winter jacket. So, don’t struggle in the cold trying to fit into oversize parkas and feeling like a tent, you can still flatter your figure during all stages with our selection of winter coats for the Canadian mama.

The M-Coat is the ultimate winter coat designed to look classic and stylish, as well as adapt with you as you change from pregnant, to a new mother to an independent mama. We love the fact that these coats are designed and manufactured in Canada because it helps to know that they truly understand our needs and wants in a winter coat!
- In the later stages of your pregnancy, you can zip in a front panel facing in an “A” direction and cinch a drawstring to enhance the shape.
- With your baby, you can zip in the front panel in a “V” shape and fold down to have your baby facing outward in a frontal carrier, and adjust the tie to cinch over your baby comfortably.
- Wear it without the panel as a regular fitting winter parka.
The M-Coat features a detachable hood and faux fur trim, Teflon coated fabric to resist water and stains, removable panel, oversized exterior pockets, waist belt to adjust snugness, “Freshness Assurance” down, that is washed and treated with an antibacterial sanitizer. It is also machine washable!
