Maternity stores




To be considered as well as Old Navy.

Offers well designed stuff @ ''targetian" prices. What else could you expect? A Target in SF for sure!!



Les department stores:

Follow the above link.

Keep in mind that Neiman Marcus and Barney's don't have this department. For the other stores, the selection is not always very large (especially online), but the overall style of each of them is recognizable.



Non specialized major brands that developed  a maternity range:


Gap Maternity

It is Gap, with no surprise! It is doing the job perfectly!

And the good thing is that we don't feel like we pay the high price for some trousers we are going to wear for 5 months (not even 9!! At the beginning, you just pull in the abs!) and we're going to loathe right after.

890 Market street -- @ Powell

Old Navy Maternity

Same comment. It is really worth it for casual style. You can even dig in the regular department choosing some large sizes.

801 Market street -- @ 4th street

Is there anything to say? Style and price, even when you're pregnant. Good old H&M!!

Specialized brands:


A Pea in the Pod

A good surprise. Multibrand store with a selection of top fashion jeans brands for example (7 for all Mankind, True Religion, Lucky Brand....)

Or Velvet, Ella Moss for the tops.

Offers some nursery items as well (like diaper bags...) and some lingerie.

In the end, price range is quite wide. Their own brand items contribute to counterbalance it.

345 Sutter street -- between Stockton & Grant

Motherhood Maternity

Suburbs stores, sometimes assoxiated with Baby'srus.

Looks like pretty affordable. And Heidi Klum even spotted some articles... Does it help?

Encore autre chose...:


Day One

‘’The center  for new and expectant parents’’.

Some kind of a ''club'' gathering ''moms to be''.

Everything related to maternity like Prenatal classes, Fitness, Baby yoga... A galore of nursery stuff from McLaren strollers to Mustella products, plus ''Nursing accessories'', et hints to help you live trimesters after each other (like the alleviating nausea tea...)

Natural Resources

Same thing. Classes, Doula training... And a super fancy store with a rather beautiful selection.

Nursing, skincare, babytoys, baby clothes... most of the time organic! So SF!!

1367 Valencia street

Second hand stores:


Maternity Xchange

New, recycled and consignment.

Sports Basement stores are used as ''Sale and Drop off locations''.

30 to 70% off regular prices for new items and until 80% off  for second hand ones. Monthly sales. Typically a good idea to find clothes @ bargaining prices considering the fact that we will wear them for such a short period.
