Hello, I’m Laura – founder of Gooseberry Pink.


I am passionate about creating beautiful gifts for mothers to be, and their new babies.


I love the celebration that is pregnancy today!


When I had my babies, we wore big shapeless smocks that did their best to conceal the fact that you were pregnant.  We certainly never wore figure hugging clothing.  Or considered capturing this time in our life with a pregnancy photoshoot!


I love that expectant mums today embrace pregnancy, and honour their beautifully changing shape.  Never has there been a time when pregnancy has been more celebrated.

My initial inspiration for the brand was ‘belly art’ – a lovely trend where expectant mums use paints or henna tattoos to decorate their pregnant form.  I thought this was an enchanting way for mums to celebrate their growing pregnancy bump.  Although I guessed that having a painted belly is probably not the most practical thing on a day to day basis!


I wanted to capture this spirit of celebration and make beautiful belly art something that all mums-to-be could enjoy.


The result was Gooseberry Pink..…a fabulous range of maternity tops featuring beautiful designs that ‘hug the bump’.

My pregnancy tops are perfect for anyone looking for gift ideas for the pregnant women in their life.  So I wanted to make them extra special.


The tops are designed meticulously to fit and flatter at every stage of pregnancy.  We use only premium quality fabrics that are luxuriously soft and comfortable to wear.


I am also passionate about ensuring that my clothing is made in a way that will not be damaging to the world we live in, or the people in it.


So, all Gooseberry Pink clothing is ethically sourced + manufactured using only 100% certified organic cotton.

Since those early beginnings, I have taken the same ethical and design principles and created a gorgeous range of baby clothing – all made from supersoft, organic cotton.  Perfect for baby’s delicate skin, they make beautiful and thoughtful gifts for newborn babies, up to 18 months.


Whether you are treating yourself, or gifting to a special new mum, I hope you enjoy the Gooseberry Pink range as much as I enjoy designing it for you!
