What is the background of Rosie Pope Maternity? When did it start, and how has it evolved since then?
Rosie Pope Maternity was started by Daron and Rosie Pope in 2007 and the first store opened in 2008. In 2008, Rosie became pregnant and gave birth to her first son. The excitement of motherhood was wonderful and left Rosie keen to expand her family. The difficult and challenging journey that ensued left Rosie even more driven to share her story and help other women. Her popularity led to her hit docu-series on BRAVO, “Pregnant in Heels” which debuted in April, 2011. In the series, Rosie offers her expertise to guide soon-to-be parents through the trials and tribulations of pregnancy. Rosie also released her first book soon thereafter, “Mommy IQ: The Complete Guide to Pregnancy,” a step-by-step pregnancy guide that offers Rosie’s personal advice through her experiences as well as research and information from the most renowned OBGYNs and elite experts in the pediatric space. The company quickly became a national brand, opening stores in NYC and Santa Monica, CA and started its segment growth, offering beautifully design products for parents along this journey.
