Sprout Maternity was founded in Australia in 2016 by a Mum to provide pregnant women with stylish, comfortable and affordable maternity wear that is sourced in the most ethical way possible. 

Ethical and Sustainable Maternity & Nursing Wear

In an age where ethical has almost become a cliche, what does this mean? Well for us, it means no exploitation of humans or the environment. It means maternity wear made in places around the world where your purchase improves the lives of people involved. It means sourcing from companies who value sustainable businesses and not just profits.

Ethical and Sustainable Maternity Wear Suppliers

In our search for these suppliers we have looked far and wide to bring a range of nursing and maternity wear to Australia that we are proud to call our own, and proud to claim as ethical. Interested? Why not have a look around?

Everything of the best for your Journey!

Every process in the making of a Shakti Shanti garment is as nature intended, without any desire to exploit, but rather to utilize, create, preserve and grow their precious home land, people and mother earth in general. Everything about Shakti Shanti is based on yogic principles, some of these include:

Respect and Non-violence (Ahimsa) 

We respect the integrity of all people and the environment with whom we are connected and act with care towards them. We are thus, as much as possible, environmentally friendly and make use of materials which come naturally from the earth.

‘Right use of energy’ (Bramacharya) 

We bring care and wisdom to our conduct and avoid all forms of exploitation. We do not make use of sweat shops or child labour, everyone involved in the processes of making a Shakti Shanti garment is well remunerated and has quality time to spend with their family.

Non-greed and non-attachment (Aparigraha) 

We use our yogic knowledge and skills for the benefit of all people with whom we are connected, and not to gain unfair personal advantage. Although our quality is exceptional, we do not mark up the garments according to regular industry standards. We want to remain affordable to the general public. In fact we want every link along the way to be benefitting from the range, the end user as they have a high quality affordable product.

They say necessity is the mother of invention, so at Cherry Melon we've made a point of creating inventive motherhood necessities.

As actual real-life moms ourselves, we know all about pregnancy and what a wonderful yet overwhelming journey it can be. It's a lot.

There is so much to consider, and regular, non-pregnancy clothing can be too restrictive for bourgeoning bodies. To be fair, it’s not the regular clothes’ fault – it just wasn’t designed to support all the changes you’re going through.

This is why we have developed a whole line of uncomplicated, everyday clothes to support your sacred vessel from pregnancy, through to post-partum, breastfeeding, and way beyond.

Founded in Cape Town in 2005 by Tiggy Potgieter, the Cherry Melon family works as a team to create effortless garments from the best quality fabrics available. All of this is dreamed into being right here in sunny SA by mostly local, female-owned manufacturers. So, when you buy Cherry Melon, you also know that you are supporting craftswomen with families of their own.

"When I created Cherry Melon, I was determined to make a pregnant woman's transition to motherhood a little easier. And because our bodies change with the seasons of life, we've also crafted effortless clothing to support her journey through womanhood." Tiggy

Yummy Maternity is inspired by a love of nature and a desire to tread lightly on the earth. As mums, we know how challenging it is to stay comfy during pregnancy when your body is changing. And we also know all about the amazing properties of bamboo and its perfect match for this time of life. Our aim is to bring silky soft and super comfy bamboo bodywear to pregnant and nursing mothers that has them looking and feeling amazing. Bumps and boobs are the most special things ever when it comes to babes and we believe in wrapping them up in the pure delight of Mother Nature. Just as she intended. After all, she's a Mother too!



We believe our fashion choices shouldn't cost the earth. Bamboo is better for you, your baby and our planet. It is sustainable, grows faster and with less environmental impact than cotton and doesn’t require pesticides or chemicals.


Bamboo is luxuriously soft and feels like cashmere on your skin. Its thermo-regulatory properties keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. Its hypoallergenic qualities make it ideal for sensitive skin or for pregnancy skin flare ups.


Bamboo has a natural antibacterial agent which eliminates odour, is moisture-wicking and helps with the absorption and evaporation of sweat and milk spills.
