Pink Blush / Motherhood Maternity

A maternity sweatshirt (or rather, a handful of zip-ups and hoodies) needs to be part of your pregnancy wardrobe, since being comfortable is never as important as it is when you’re expecting. Made to stretch and grow with your ever-expanding belly, a great maternity sweatshirt will keep you cozy and warm on chilly days and nights and will never feel restricting. They’re also versatile: you can wear a maternity hoodie while lounging around the house in your favorite maternity leggings, or you can pair it with jeans and comfy shoes and wear it to run errands or see friends. You’ll also use it to cozy up in when you need clothes to wear postpartum. Really, the possibilities are endless, and we’re all for it.

When looking for the best maternity sweatshirt, you might want to opt for at least one style in a neutral color (like white, black, or brown) that will go with pretty much anything and can be thrown over whatever else you’re wearing. If you prefer bright colors, go for a bolder shade for something more fun. And while zip-up hoodies are nice to toss over your shoulders, they may not grow with your belly as well as a pullover. Some have special panels and zippers to allow for easy nursing and pumping access. And remember, buying a maternity hoodie that’s also ready for postpartum life is a great bonus. 

Now that we’ve convinced you (you’re welcome), check out some of our favorite maternity sweatshirts and hoodies you can buy right now.

Best Maternity Sweatshirts

Glampunch Maternity Zip Up Hoodie

If you prefer zip-ups to pullovers, then this one is a great option. It’s long enough to accommodate a growing belly, and the side-ruched design allows it to really stretch out. Reviewers rave about how stretchy and soft it is, with one writing, “I absolutely live in this hoodie! It fits great around my bump (22 weeks, but pregnant with my 6th so I look like I’m about to pop) and has plenty of stretch so I’m sure it will fit throughout pregnancy.” It can also easily be worn after Baby is born.

For a bit of a different design, opt for this cowl neck sweatshirt. Made of a very soft jersey material, it’s lightweight, breathable, and really versatile. It has a casual feel to it with a hidden front panel that zips close for easy breastfeeding. Some reviewers note that it runs small, so consider ordering one size up.


Seraphine 3-in-1 Maternity Hoodie

This 3-in-1 Seraphine hoodie basically does it all. It has soft fleece on the inside, fingerless gloves to pull over your hands on the sleeves, and large pockets for stashing things. When you’re pregnant, this can be worn as a zip-up hoodie on its own (the stretchy material and oversized feel make this one a super comfortable option, even with the zipper). Once Baby is here, you can add the included front panel to make it fit comfortably over a baby sling or carrier s0 y0ur LO will be nestled safely underneath your sweatshirt, leaving your arms and hands free. And this versatile option can be worn even when you aren’t pregnant.

It has a stretchy fit that can also be worn postpartum without looking too oversized. It comes in a few different colors to choose from, as well.


Ingrid & Isabel Maternity + Nursing Sweatshirt

This hoodie has a unique feature: The crossover front makes it convenient to breastfeed when the baby arrives, and it also makes a cute V-neck top when you’re pregnant. This is just a little oversized, and it’s super soft and snuggly. You’ll definitely want to pack it in your hospital bag.


Bearsland Maternity Sweater

Super long and made with a stretchy and breathable material, this sweatshirt works over your bump and after the baby makes its way into the world. The concealed zip cut-outs on the sides make it easy to discreetly breastfeed or pump when you need to, and the kangaroo pocket is great for a little extra storage. It also comes in a bunch of different colors.

Glink Nursing Hoodie

This double-layer hoodie features a wrap front that allows you to wear it while you’re pregnant or when you’re nursing your baby.

Best Maternity Hoodies

Bhome Store Maternity Hoodie

This lightweight V-neck hoodie looks and feels more like a simple long-sleeve shirt than a thick, fleece sweatshirt. This makes it more versatile than thicker versions, and it’s a great choice for warmer weather when you just need to slip something over your t-shirt if it gets chilly out. It’s soft and stretchy, with scrunched sides so that it will expand as your bump grows, and it comes in a variety of different colors, from plain neutrals to brighter shades. While the material is breathable and soft, keep in mind that this one is recommended to be hand-washed only.

Pink Blush Soft Fleece Maternity Drawstring Hoodie

This is basically your classic fleece hoodie, just meant to fit over a baby bump. It has a super soft and luxurious feel to it, with a front pocket and adjustable drawstrings. It’s also super stretchy to grow with the bump, and it can easily be worn postpartum as well. Versatile, casual, and super cozy, this is one you’ll absolutely live in.


Ingrid & Isabel Ripe Maternity Joey Nursing Sweatshirt

Comfy and chic, this sweatshirt has a more fitted feel that makes it seem less like loungewear, yet it’s still stretchy and breathable. It’s meant to be worn during pregnancy and postpartum; you can simply lift up the front flap and breastfeed or pump while still wearing it. The drawstring neckline is a cute feature, as well.


Motherhood Maternity Side Access Nursing Hoodie

Made of French terry, this soft and lightweight hoodie is perfect for the summertime (or really any time of the year). It stretches enough for a growing belly, and then it has discreet side zippers that make it easy to open to nurse your little one. This is a great hoodie you’ll wear all the time.


Nom Maternity Jojo Maternity/Nursing Hoodie

This super soft hoodie is nice and warm but light, so it will never feel bulky. The easy access nursing panel that lifts up in seconds makes this transition quickly into your favorite postpartum hoodie. It comes in black or gray, and has a cute drawstring hood.
