Maintaining your sense of self is key as a mama

That's why we design and create clothes that help you feel like yourself while pregnant and breastfeeding

Enjoy the moment. Find a way to be happy in whatever situation you're in. Because the nights might be long and the days slow, but the years really do pass in a blink of an eye. Welcome to Close to the Heart. We make breastfeeding clothes that you can look and feel amazing in. We want to help women feel happy in their new roles as mums. 

Close to the Heart designs breastfeeding clothes that help you adapt to your new circumstances, and mean you don't have to change who you are. 

Breastfeeding is something very close to our hearts

Close to the Heart is driven by a New Zealand mama, Maree. 

Breastfeeding is something very close to my heart, I love that it's the one thing I can do for my babies, that no one else can do. For years I've struggled to find breastfeeding clothes that I feel happy wearing. There are some beautiful ranges out there, but the styles just weren't for me. So I thought, why not make it ourselves? 

Maintaining sense of self is key as a mum

At Close to the Heart we design clothing that we love. And then, we just add breastfeeding access. It's pretty simple, really! You won't find any 'mum uniforms' here - just minimal, refined clothing that you can add your own style to. 

We believe maintaining sense of self is key as a mum, and what you wear can directly impact how you feel. So wear clothes that you love, that you feel great in.

Effortlessly stylish

We want to make it as easy as possible to get dressed in the morning and feel fabulous.


Functional and practical

As mamas, we know how important it is to find clothes that are practical and comfortable for mum-life, while being stylish and versatile.


Beautiful and feminine

We believe breastfeeding clothes can be feminine and beautiful. We design stylish pieces that are super easy to dress up or down.
