Hi I'm Sophie!
I'm a full time mum to three children and run hotMaMa from my home in Cambridgeshire. I knew I wanted to breastfeed my first son before he was born and once he arrived in 2015 I encountered frustration at every turn: A premature baby with difficulty feeding, endless topping up sessions with expressed milk, mastitis and countless blocked ducts. I also found that my clothing was also an unexpected challenge. I had been so excited to get back to my pre-pregnancy wardrobe but so much was either difficult or impossible to breastfeed in! I found the current market for breastfeeding clothes felt dull or mumsy, often still aimed at heavily pregnant women. So I went back to my A Level textile days and started designing things I wanted to wear and hotMaMa was born! I work with another mum run manufacturing business to print the fabric and make the garments you purchase to make sure they are of the highest possible standard and quality and at an affortable price! As the brand has grown I'm increasingly asking you ladies out there what you want to see from hotMaMa and incorporating your ideas into new designs too!
