Today I was so disappointed with the customer service provided at the store by the person named Sharon at the counter. I doubt we will ever return to the store in the future. She  was so rude to both my husband n me (9months pregnant). Their exchange/refund policy is decided by their salesperson's wish apparently. Thank god it's Canada n consumer rights r better protected than any other countries in the world. Please hire better sales people.
I worked this job part time for a year before deciding to return to work full time after staying home for 5 years with my kids. Part time hours were fine; pay was minimum wage. I was repeatedly offered the store manager position but the hours would have been less than ideal (working every weekend and several evenings a week) and the pay offered was brutal. All associates were pushed to sell specific products and these sales were tracked weekly. The review process was horrible- you could rate 'excellent' in every aspect, but if your store wasn't meeting the sales budget, you 'failed' your overall review.
Last pregnancy I lived in my topshop Leigh mat jeans, but they have sagged (understandably - heavy wear!) bought a new pair this time round but fit was bizarre - really baggy at top of thighs. Curses! So they have been retuned and I am after slim-ish fit blue jeans with a good fit that don't sag. they don't have to be a bargain, will pay up to £50 for good 'uns. It would be a bonus if they didn't fall down when I pick up my toddler, and I hate over-bump trousers. Help!
There are many options in maternity shirts from Old Navy. There are tanks for layering, nursing, or for use when the weather is warm. There are also long sleeve and short sleeve maternity T-shirts in many stylish colors and patterns. For those looking for a special occasion outfit, or something that can be worn to work, there are also tops that can be worn with dress pants or skirts.

As part of the larger Gap Inc. family of brands, Old Navy remains committed to supporting both people and the environment. The brand promotes equal pay for employees, regardless of gender, strives to improve working conditions in its factories, and prohibits forced labor and child labor. The Gap Inc. family also aims to make the world a better place with its ambitious 80% waste diversion goal and 50% greenhouse gas emissions reduction plan.
Topshop's maternity range delivers on comfort and style, making it exactly what every mum-to-be is looking for (I know, because I am one). The company's denim section in particular is brilliant: It now features maternity versions of its most popular styles. My insider at Topshop told me that the brand's over-the-bump Joni jeans in black are the best-selling style.
Motherhood Maternity is larger, has more selection, and less pricey than Thyme nearby.  Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of maternity clothing places to shop at but this place satisfied what I was looking for. They sold maternity bras, jeans, tanks, etc and had a huge sale section. I came here late near closing time and ended up trying a bunch of clothes which took even longer. The salesperson was very friendly and didn't rush me. Even when my husband came in with our baby and baby started getting fussy as she wanted to breastfeed, the staff told me to go ahead and take care of the baby's needs as she was just cleaning up the store after closing anyways.
Most pregnant women know about Destination Maternity, as it is one of the very few stores that exclusively sells maternity apparel and much of it is quite cute! The reason this store earns the top spot on our list today is because along with traditionally-sized maternity clothing, Destination Maternity is one of the few stores that carries a full line of plus-size maternity clothing, too.
Working for Reitmans in Thyme Maternity was very interesting. It was my first job. The leadership team was fantastic. They taught me how to be a good salesperson. I learned so much about connecting with customers and building a relationship with the company as a base. I became very involved. I also developed new skills of selling and being very outgoing especially for a job that requires you to properly help pregnant women.
I couldn't bear shopping when I was pregnant, so I picked up a pair of black Moto jeans from Topshop and was done with it. It's true what they say about Topshop maternity jeans: they don't stay up - so you're forever hoisting them. On the plus side, though, they were comfy, fairly smart and under £40. This, I think, is what a lot of women end up doing. I asked Beth Graham, an independent fashion designer whose style I admire, and who has recently had a child, what she did about maternity jeans. I was expecting some obscure denim tip off but, no, Graham got a few pairs of Topshop jeans (and some of their chinos which she says earned quite a few compliments). "The jeans did fall down," agrees Graham, "but they were a good price and had some good styles."
I was so happy to see that old navy carried maternity clothing while I was pregnant. I found their clothing super affordable especially compared to other maternity stores. The majority of my maternity wardrobe for both of my pregnancies came from old navy. I had 2 pairs of maternity jeans that were extremely comfortable. One had the shorter panel and the other had the longer one which was very useful the bigger I got. I also had some really comfy t-shirts and a few cute dresses. I also really liked the tank tops.
I believe that it is worth investing in maternity jeans early on in your pregnancy - they are so much more comfortable on your expanding waist, even with a small bump so why wait? Also compared to normal jeans they will have limited wear (although I have friends who still wear theirs for a Sunday roast). You will most probably be wearing them for a while once the baby has arrived too - so get some you love.

There is lots of parking in this plaza. I liked that there was a bench, so I could feed my son easily. The fitting rooms are also really large and easily fits a stroller inside. The staff were nice enough, but they didn't have the exact size of what I was looking for. I went during the nursing event. The staff seemed disappointed that it wasn't busier, but considering that it wasn't that busy, it's also weird that they didn't have my size. They were helpful enough.

I'd say so.  I just loaded up on a bunch at the outlet in Vegas and normally wear size 6-8 depending on the brand, and most of the size small fits me fine.  They carry some different jean brands though, and sometimes I'm a medium in those, but that's normal for jeans to fit weird like they do when we're not pregnant!  Don't even escape that when looking for mat clothes!
Greatly enjoy working at Thyme Maternity, interacting with customers is the best part of the job. Excellent manager and assistant manager, ongoing coaching given to me as well as the opportunity to provide coaching and leadership to other staff members. Unfortunately no room to grow within the company and looking to use my education more in future employment.
