Meet the Mums finding SUCCESS in business Amber Adore Maternity

Amber Kneipp is mum to 2 beautiful children, a wife and owner of online maternity store –Adore Maternity. Amber was a single mum for many years, working a rotating roster as a nurse. After meeting her husband she knew she needed a career change. “I wanted to have a happy job, where I could be available to my children whenever they needed. Opening Adore Maternity just seemed to fit with us.” “We’re aiming to be a one stop shop for women wanting to feel pretty but comfortable in maternity wear,” Amber says. The online store stocks designer Seraphine jeans and jeggings, worn by celebrities including Dannii Minogue and Jessica Alba. “We’ve got great gear for Autumn/Winter and stock a mix of Australian and overseas labels at various price points,” Amber says. “There’s definitely a huge market for fashionable maternity wear and we thought an online boutique was a great place to offer stylish alternatives to traditionally dumpy and unflattering maternity clothes.”

Kylie La Bella

La Bella Creations specialises in tiny tot tug proof® jewellery designed specifically to be worn by mums around babies and toddlers. La Bella’s award winning rings, bangles and necklaces feature beautiful beads and stones, clever designs, unique clasps, and some can even be chewed and washed! Mum of two, with another on the way, Kylie came up with the idea after she was concerned about her children tugging and grabbing at her jewellery. She wanted to make sure that the jewellery would not only survive their tugs but be safe if they accidentally sucked on it. After making a range of beautiful tug proof® designs which sold out at play-group, music lessons and baby gym, she started selling it online and now has the concept registered as a trademark in Australia, New Zealand and the European Union. Along the way she’s picked up 3 local and 1 national award. Most of the creations are Australian made and they all feature a 100% money back guarantee! Available from selected stockists and at
