Expecting? Let our eco-maternity style and pampering picks help get you feeling fabulous, whatever trimester you’re in. You deserve it, mom-to-be!

Does the term maternity wear instantly make you envision frumpy smocks and tent-like T’s? What you need is a little Jessica Scott in your closet. The designer is devoted to keeping both mothers and the planet toxin free in order to ensure the happiness and health of future generations. To do so, she uses organic cotton and lyocell—a cellulose textile made from farmed-tree pulp—in all her designs. And the clothes? Divine. Our hands-down favorite is the sexy, sophisticated, deceptively simple, wonderfully versatile Strapless in Seattle—a combination strapless dress, long skirt and capelet that is as comfortable to wear as it is stylish. The fetching Strapless comes in a range of mouthwatering colors, including watermelon, lime and chocolate, and features a silky skirt and lovely rosette detail. We also adore the
As Gaucho As It Gets wide-leg pants, with their under-belly wrap waist and sweet sequin detail, especially when we pair them with the flower-graphic A Camisole Built For Two—perfect for prenatal yoga, or dolled up with a sharp blazer or slinky wrap for fancier affairs. Purchase any of Jessica Scott’s maternity pieces and you’ll be protecting the health of children everywhere: The designer donates 2.5% of net profits to the Children’s Health Environmental Coalition, which works to improve the quality and quantity of environmental health information reaching the public.

Babies are notorious for tugging on jewelry—which is exactly what inspired Momma’s Jewels to create its lovely line of sterling silver teething necklaces and bracelets. Accessorize your eco-stylish maternity ensemble with our favorite, the Three Ring Sterling Silver Necklace. You’ll be the only one who knows that gorgeous bit of bling grazing your oh-so-voluptuous pregnancy cleavage is actually a nontoxic, naturally antimicrobial, heirloom-quality (meaning recyclable for decades and decades) teether. Once baby’s here, she won’t be able to keep her hands off your necklace, and you won’t mind one bit, knowing that those rings she’s happily gnawing are free of phthalates, BPA, lead and other nasties that can be associated with plastic teething toys. We love Momma’s Jewels as a baby-shower or new-mom gift—one that will keep on giving for generations.

Nothing looks better in summer’s sweetest eco-maternity styles and fabulous accessories that healthy, dewy, dazzling skin. Luckily, paraben- and petrolatum-free Honeydew Skin Care has you covered. Our preggo pals swear by Honeydew’s delish-smelling Balmy Mommy, a lightweight, super-concentrated balm that’s full of good stuff like cocoa butter and calendula to nourish swelling tummies, breasts and thighs, and help prevent the itch that comes with the pregnancy stretch. For more intensive moisturizing, there’s super-rich Bun in the Over belly butter, packed with shea butter for cell repair, and jojoba, which has natural anti-inflammatory properties. Besides bulging bellies, it’s great for dry elbows, knees and feet. Both Honeydew products are available at Nordstrom.com.

So go on, get your glow on, mama!
