If you are planning on growing your family or are currently expecting you may feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of prenatal and postpartum products there are to choose from. The  Bump just announced the winners of The Bump Best of Pregnancy Awards which highlights the most outstanding products for pregnancy and the fourth trimester. Winners include must-have products across three categories: live, wear and care. 

“We created The Bump Best of Pregnancy Awards as an extension of our well-known Best of Baby Awards franchise. Pregnancy is such a pivotal time in a woman’s life, so we made it our mission to research, test and find the most helpful products to navigate the journey and the 12 weeks that follow, known as the fourth trimester,” said Lauren Kay, executive editor of The Bump. “From the best pregnancy pillow to nursing clothes you’ll actually want to wear, this year’s winners are all aimed to aid mothers in this life-changing journey.”
