London-born entrepreneur Rosie Pope is the creative force behind Rosie Pope Maternity, her sophisticated maternity clothing and accessories line, with stores in Santa Monica, California, and New York’s Upper East Side and TriBeCa neighborhoods, and MomPrep, her prenatal, postpartum and parenting education studios.
Rosie’s days are filled with being a mom, wife, designer, educator, TV personality and all-around guide to women during their pregnancies and beyond. Her goal is to bring together the highest quality products, information and expert services to help each woman figure out her best journey through pregnancy and motherhood.
In 2008, after giving birth to her first son, the excitement of motherhood left Rosie keen to expand her family. The difficult and challenging journey that ensued left her determined to share her story and help other women. This is the path that brought Rosie Pope to where she is today – the creative force behind her growing lifestyle brand, Rosie Pope Maternity.
In just two years, Pope became a trusted guru for stylish mothers everywhere – including Hollywood’s elite – and in 2010, she expanded her brand with MomPrep, a premier roster of classes for moms and moms-to-be. MomPrep offers an extensive schedule of classes, workshops, and seminars including prenatal, postpartum and parenting education offered out of her Santa Monica and Upper East Side –NYC locations. She also offers maternity concierge services to expecting mothers in New York City.
After being featured helping celebrity mom, Bethenny Frankel prepare for motherhood on Bravo’s “Bethenny Getting Married”, this mompreneur debuted her own reality TV show titled “Pregnant in Heels”, which debuted on Bravo in April 2011. In this docu-series, Rosie uses her expertise to guide soon-to-be mothers and fathers through the joys and perils of preparing to have a baby. From a rock ‘n’ roll nursery makeover to getting a baby into the British aristocracy, she tackles all of her client’s pregnancy dilemmas in a hilarious and often tearful journey.
In her quest to bring confidence and knowledge to moms, Pope released her first book, Mommy IQ: The Complete Guide to Pregnancy, a step-by-step pregnancy guide that features Rosie’s personal advice coupled information from renowned experts. Additionally, she is a Contributing Editor at Parents magazine, penning a weekly blog and monthly column called Rosie to the Rescue! With both Mommy IQ and Rosie to the Rescue!, Rosie continues to discuss many of the details that she regularly speaks about, including the inspiration for starting her own business, how she expanded it into a lifestyle brand for pregnant women and new moms, her own personal story of difficulties conceiving and the struggles of juggling work and family life.
Today, she is regularly sought after by the media for her advice on style for moms, babies and kids, parenting tips and parenting trends. Rosie currently lives in New York City with her husband, Daron, her two sons, James and Wellington, and her baby daughter Vivienne.
