NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Bump, the definitive voice for millennial parents, today announced the winners of its first annual The Bump Best of Pregnancy Awards, honoring the most outstanding products for pregnancy and the fourth trimester. The Bump Best of Pregnancy Awards winners include must-have products across three categories: live, wear and care. All selections were made by The Bump editorial team for their purpose, efficacy, aesthetics and more. The team tested hundreds of products and identified the top 33 award winners guaranteed to make the transition from a positive pregnancy test to a baby-in-arms as seamless as possible.
“We created The Bump Best of Pregnancy Awards as an extension of our well-known Best of Baby Awards franchise. Pregnancy is such a pivotal time in a woman’s life, so we made it our mission to research, test and find the most helpful products to navigate the journey and the 12 weeks that follow, known as the fourth trimester,” said Lauren Kay, executive editor of The Bump. “From the best pregnancy pillow to nursing clothes you’ll actually want to wear, this year’s winners are all aimed to aid mothers in this life-changing journey.”
