As the name implies, Nima’ma Maternity is a shop for expecting mothers to get their fill of fashion. Styles run through from everyday casual to professional separates. Canadian labels like Jules & Jim and Hatch are local favourites, while international names like Boob and Pure T are also brought in. For moms who don’t want to give up their jeans, Nima’ma Maternity has a great selection of premium denim. Try their maternity loungewear and nursing lingerie section for hot finds that add a touch of sophistication to your pre and post pregnancy body.
Women’s clothing and accessories
You don’t have to be pregnant to shop here, though. Nima’ma Maternity carries many lines for women of all sizes, with a few being completely organic. As well, keep your eyes peeled for their lovely jewelry options, like sterling silver lockets, gold vermeil and gems by names like Rock & Bauble and Suzanne Nairne. Other accessories include unique purses and handbags in wonderful fabrics. A skincare line is also on display, mostly from Canadian companies. These focus on expectant mothers but there are definitely some organic and natural products for those without child.
Ever since April 2008, the doors here have been open to women who want to take care of themselves. The name of this boutique, Nima’ma Maternity (pronounced “nee-mama”), translated to “my mother”. It comes from the owner’s Woodland Cree heritage and is a way to honour her ancestors. This connection to mothers and family is a strong one and continues on to the store itself, which pays tribute to good quality merchandise for expectant mothers and those that love them.
