OC Maternity

Julie ChristensenAfter Orange County mom Julie Christensen gained more than 80 pounds during her pregnancy, which automatically means finding fashionable clothes is going to be a challenge, she set out to improve the fashion choices for expecting moms.

She was convinced that most maternity apparel wasn’t really designed for a real pregnant woman, and she wasn’t keen on paying high-end prices for a dress never to be worn again. So she founded Jules Ford Maternity, a  fashionable maternity line available online with affordable prices range from $66 for a tunic to $142 for a silk-blend empire waist, caftan-style dress.

Her focus is designing high-quality chic and stylish maternity wear that can be worn for the duration of your pregnancy, even the awkward months after the baby comes, when you’re not quite ready to fit into pre-pregnancy clothes.

The styles are versatile, comfortable and simple. She also can design custom dresses for any special occasion.
