Every year, I talk about how you might not need a maternity coat, depending on where you’ll be in your pregnancy. If you’re going to be heavily pregnant during the coldest months of winter you may want to consider getting a coat like this. This one has a clever design — once you have your baby you can take this insert out and turn it around so that it covers your baby while you’re wearing him or her. So, it covers your bump and then covers your baby. When you’re not wearing your baby, you can remove the insert entirely. (The hood is also removable.) This machine washable coat comes in gray and black in sizes XS-XL and is $170 at Nordstrom; note that Amazon has it in an khaki green as well.
