Who We Are

Behind the scenes at NZ based brand Close to the Heart are two mamas, Alex and Michele (who are also sisters in law!) With four boys and two baby girls between them, Alex and Michele were inspired by their own journeys into motherhood, and their challenges finding breastfeeding friendly clothes that really "felt like us." A few years on, Close to the Heart was created.

Now, Alex and Michele love nothing more than helping other mamas feel like themselves with super stylish, refined and effortlessly cool nursing clothes, bras and pyjamas.

Michele and Alex are always on the lookout for what's next and how they can continue to shake up the status quo when it comes to maternity and nursing clothing in NZ.

See the love from our happy mamas

    Thank you for the super speedy delivery of my order - ordered yesterday and was here at 2pm today! I LOVE my clothes, great and practical breastfeeding access (love that the zips go bottom to top for a bit more coverage). They're also just good clothes, nice cuts and length and really nice material!
