Hello! Welcome to The Swanky Stork blog. Pregnancy is such a beautiful and wonderful thing, but is also a time filled with lots of changes and lots of questions. The goal behind this blog is to help you navigate the crazy pregnancy days, while also having a bit of fun in the process!
A little background before we get going - The Swanky Stork is a maternity boutique located in downtown Homewood on 18th Street. We are next door to Mama Goldbergs (a.k.a. Mama G's) and across the street from Soca Clothing. The Swanky Stork is owned by three sisters, Bryson, Mary Ann and Beth. I (Bryson) am the mother of two children, Kate and Cole. Mary Ann has a daughter on the way - due in February. We also own a children's boutique, Fireflies & Fairytales located in The Village at Lee Branch off Hwy 280 in the Greystone area. The stores support the Fireflies & Fairytales Foundation. This Foundation was established in memory of our mother, who died of breast cancer. The foundation benefits children who have lost a parent to cancer.
We believe that a great maternity store should not only have fabulous clothes, but also a knowledgeable staff to help answer questions "beyond the clothes". You will find this when you come in the store, but also hopefully will find this blog useful for that same purpose. So, welcome to The Swanky Stork blog! Check often as we will update regularly with new arrivals in the store that are absolute "must haves" for all you moms-to-be. We will also feature "wonder why Wednesdays" where we'll ask those "wonder why" questions that we all have. And we'll just discuss pregnancy in general - things like tips for establishing a fabulous pregnancy wardrobe without breaking your budget, how and when to buy nursing bras, how do I know where I'll gain weight, what do pregnancy sizes mean and how do they run - you get the picture.
Thanks for reading! Check back often and we hope to see you in the stores soon!
