Rosie Pope does it all, while in heels. As a fashion designer and pregnancy guru, Rosie is one super-momma. While managing two high fashion maternity boutiques (one in Santa Monica and the other in Manhattan) she runs MomPrep, the premiere training academy for moms-to-be, all while taking care of her now, 3 Littles! I am not quite sure how she manages it all.
Yesterday, this Bravo TV star gave birth to a baby girl, and tweeted during almost her entire labor. With her busy schedule over the last few weeks, we were thrilled to get a chat in with the Pregnant in Heels star as she returns for Season 2 tomorrow! I received a screener, and all I have to say is – you must set your TiVo. Tune in tomorrow at 10pm. But, for now – read our chat!
With a new store opening soon, and Season 2 of Pregnant in Heels premiering, what tips do you have for moms like you who do it all?
Keep perspective. It sounds so easy to say but when you really take the time to think how much you love your kids and that your goal is to always be the best mom you can be for your kids it really helps put everything else into place. Everything you need to do on a daily basis can be completely overwhelming so even taking 20 minutes where you can just play with your kids and not worry about all that other stuff helps. Also, organization is so important. You need an organized structure in your life otherwise things don’t get done and it makes you feel out of control. Whether it is a calendar you write everything down in or even making notes in your phone, it will help you to feel confident and in control. Lists are essential!
What inspired your maternity line, Rosie Pope Maternity, your first pregnancy?
In a nutshell, I wanted to start a company that supports moms whether it be in style or in education so that is where Rosie Pope Maternity and MomPrep were born. I feel so lucky to work with women when they are in such important months of their lives.
What tips do you have for stylish moms-to-be when it comes to their wardrobe?
Stay true to your style. If you wouldn’t wear it before you were pregnant, don’t wear it now!
Can’t wait for Season 2 of Pregnant in Heels. Can you tell us about that?
Its crazy!! Season 2 really dives into all of the pregnancy and parenting trends out there – from placenta eating to pregnancy porn. It premieres May 15th so tune in to watch the craziness!
During your pregnancies, what is your exercise routine?
For me, jogging is the most effective but it can be uncomfortable when you are really far along so I literally walk everywhere. I also love Pilates and Yoga.
Lastly, I have to ask – what is your favorite pair of heels to wear when pregnant?
I am really into this new pair of Luxury Rebel cork wedges in Coral. I get so many compliments and they are really affordable!
