British maternity activewear brand, Ottilie Active, brought to you by Laura Cullen.

As well as having 10 years experience as a Specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapist in Cornwall, I am a a busy mum of 2 beautiful boys. After becoming pregnant 7 years ago I realised that antenatal fitness classes were incredibly limited.

In 2016 I founded Fit Bumps and Mums; a unique service specialising in pre and postnatal Pilates and Fitness classes. Subsequently this developed into a successful business teaching classes as well as providing Physiotherapy services for Mums in Cornwall.

It was as I was teaching these classes I had the idea. So many of my ladies would say to me “where is the best place to get some maternity leggings?” or  “I wish there was a breastfeeding sports bra“.

Starting a British maternity activewear brand has not been an easy task. Getting the products perfect for you all takes time and energy. However it is totally worth it, for every amazing review I receive. For every happy client, who can maintain her active life, feeling great in her clothes through pregnancy and into motherhood!

I hope you love Ottilie as much as I do.

P.s. for anyone wondering why I called it Ottilie…initially it was called Fit Bumps and Mums Activewear which doesn’t quite roll off your tongue. But then I change it to Ottilie which was my girl baby name. I have 2 gorgeous but boisterous little boys Alfie and Harry (in the picture above) but I always always wanted a girl. Life didn’t deal me those cards (for now at least anyway..). Therefore Ottilie Active is my baby girl instead…!
