Now that we’ve officially bid adieu to 2016 and happily clinked our way into the New Year, it’s time to share the latest and greatest trends coming up in the land of bumps and babies. From nurseries that bring the outdoors inside to the maternity trend we hope stays around forever, here’s what everyone will be talking about in 2017.

Maternity Athleisure Wear

Some trends we want to say, "goodbye" to the minute we hear about them (culottes are just really, really hard to pull off!). Others we hope stay around forever. Athliesurewear is one of the latter and for good reason — it looks great and is super comfy, two things every pregnant mama's crave in fashion. So, if you're concerned that every bubble has to burst, we're here to tell you that wearing active wear everywhere is here to stay in 2017. More and more companies are sprouting up that offer cool and comfy maternity outfits like this Seraphine nursing sweater and we can't wait to see how this trend keeps evolving in the new year.

2017 is shaping up to be a great year for fresh designs and innovative products that cater to the needs of new and expectant parents. What trends are you most looking forward to in the year ahead?
