Mum making a difference in maternity wear

A Toowoomba mum is reaching out to pregnant women through her new clothing store.

Bernadette Ross said she got the idea of setting up a maternity wear shop after moving from Melbourne when she was 25 weeks pregnant but was disappointed with the maternity wear range in Toowoomba.

“I was starting to need clothes to accommodate my growing baby bump,” she said. “When I arrived however, there was not much available and what was available was quite uninspiring to say the least.”

In response, Bernadette set up a clothing store in her home to stock a range of fashionable clothing for pregnant women. Mrs Ross said she would like to expand into a one-stop shop for maternity needs.

“I like to provide pretty and stylish clothing for women during a time when they are perhaps not feeling that way,” she said.

Mrs Ross said her faith has been central to the endeavour.

“Each person I meet, I endeavour to treat as an encounter with Christ…as He said, ‘Whatsoever you did for the least of my brethren you did for me’.”

“Furthermore, I myself try to be Christlike towards them so that they may see Christ in me. The biggest test is remembering this and putting it into practice daily!”

Bernadette said her business is also an affirmation of her faith.

“As a person concerned about the current political environment and the attack on the family, it is very life-giving to meet so many women who are excited to be bringing into the world the newest generation.”

B.A.Ross Maternity Wear is open Mon-Sat by appointment. You can check out the range of clothing and keep up to date with the latest items by liking the business page on Facebook, or call Bernadette to make an appointment on 0437 184 858.
