Lovely lady, very nice maternity clothes.
Good prices, best in act!

Marcus Jan 2021

Finally a shop that pregnant mothers can go to buy clothes that are decently priced, good quality and has variety!! It’s been a lifesaver this store and I have bought all my clothes from there and get compliments all the time.

Lauren Jan 2021

Fantastic range from work wear, special occasion to casual and super comfy.

The BEST customer service, so helpful, listened and advised, but wasn't pushy at all. Sam even helped me to save money with some post baby options (breastfeeding friendly).

Sam is friendly, approachable and made me feel better on one of those days when you just need a boost.

I couldn't recommend her store enough.

Thank you Sam 😊

Sarah 2/3/20

Very good service from Sam and a great choice of maternity clothes from active wear, casual, smart casual through to corporate. 

Marcelline 26/2/19

I had so much fun shopping with Sam! I bought some gorgeous dresses and walked away feeling so much better about everything. With the lack of maternity options in Canberra, Motherly Instincts is an absolutely godsend! I urge you all to check it out! You won’t be disappointed as there is something for everyone! Thanks again Sam and see you soon for some winter clothes!

Olivia 16/2/19

Best customer service, super friendly! After purchasing a dress online and it not fitting I was able to go into the shop and change it with no hassle. Great prices too (came out with a few extra pieces) highly recommended!!!

Hi Samantha

Big thanks for helping with all my maternity clothes shopping! I had a lot of fun and will definitely be in touch again as the weather gets cooler. The clothes fit beautifully and feel such high quality. I have really enjoyed my first two days at work this week!

I am extremely happy with my Szabo Jeans from Motherly Instincts. They are most comfortable and look hot! Fantastic professional service and very fast postal delivery. Thank you!

I received my lovely clothes and am overjoyed at how beautiful they are and the lovely colour they have added to my dreary wardrobe. I look forward to shopping with you 
more during my pregnancy.
Thank you



I wanted to let you know I received the package with the three shirts this morning. Everything is perfect! I cannot thank you enough for sending them to me. I love the shirts!! Take care.

Sincerely, Sara Catlett

Hi Beck, Just to let you know I had my second baby on Tues 10 Nov at 2:48pm. I had a boy. He was born by Caesarian section as he was transverse breech (I am still recovering - so painful). He was 8.3 pounds (3.72kg) and 52 cm in length. We named him Kelemen (which means kind and gentle in Hungarian).

Hope you are well. I have been living in the breastfeeding tops, they are fantastic! I have 3 and I think at some stage I will have to come down and buy a couple more so I don't have to wash them every day!
Kind regards Sylvia

Hi, I just wanted to say thank you so much for your assistance in finding me some suitable maternity bra's and jeans. When i popped in to Mothelry Instincts a couple of weeks ago. I was so excited when my husband suprised my by picking up my laybe with both the Hot Milk bra's, the jeans and the top that i loved when he got home from work that friday afternoon! I love them all so very much... and if it's great clothes and sexy underwear like this i get to wear while preggies, i think i'll enjoy it & stretch it out for the next few months.. and not feel quite so frumpy!

Thanks again your service was wonderful.

Hi Beck, Many thanks for the pj's and your excellent service. Our daughter in law has just been and tried them on, they were a perfect fit, she was thrilled with them.

kind regards

Hi, Yes I have received the swimsuit, and yes I like it a lot. I wanted something I could wear for the rest of my pregnancy (and probably when I have a mummy tummy too) that I could swim laps in (needs to be chlorine resistant). The suit appears to fit the bill well, while also being comfy and looks quite nice.

Thanks, Lori 09 

Hi Beck, I received the jeans today and just this minute tried them on... They are perfect! The are sooooo comfy yet look really good and I love that they are longer as Im 174cm so find some jeans are just to short for boots and heels. You were so right about the smaller size too! I searched the internet high and low for plus size mat jeans and even ordered some and had to return them as no good but these are great, Im so pleased I came across your website. I live in jeans so was starting to get a bit worried and kept thinking i was going to have to spend my entire pregnancy in tracky pants!

Thank you so much, my husband is whisking me away for the weekend next week and Im so happy that I can look smart and be comfy too.
Thanks again. I've got most mat clothes left over from my 1st pregnancy but if i need anything else I will definately pay you a visit next time Im in Canberra. You will be strongly recommended to my friends.
Regards, Sarah

I had my baby girl May 8 2007, and while I was pregnant I think I found all the items I purchased from Motherly Instincts to be very useful, fashionable, and affordable. The assistance also I received in store was amazing and the effort the girls went to to find what I was after was such a help. Thanks for your help!

Kerryn O'Conner (May 07)

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help while I was pregnant!

I had baby Mia in May 2008 and was a Motherly Instincts addict! I was surprised I could be pregnant, comfortable AND fashionable at the same time. The staff gave great advice and made me feel so proud of my ever expanding belly. Six months on, I am still able to wear many of the items I purchased, as the styles and quality are excellent. Thanks again - I'll be back for more I'm sure!
Gemma Dowie (Oct 08)

Thank you for your help in store, it's refreshing to recieve an honest opinion, especially at a time when my body is going through so many changes. Much appreciated!

Chantal Steel (Nov 08)

Fantastic service MI. They helped me with everything from sleepwear to swimwear and bra fittings too. I even got advice for my itchy belly as it was growing! Thank you so much for being my one stop shop.
