Today on the podcast I'm talking to Louise Almond, who is in the prelaunch stage of launching her brand Amelia Anne, fashionable, discreet, and comfortable breastfeeding wear so that you can feed with confidence in any situation.

Louise is a mother of two and a full-time teacher of Design and Technology who previously worked in the fashion industry. Louise developed her innovative products from a need she had herself, to be able to breastfeed in public and not bear more than she wanted, keep her tummy and back warm in winter, and not cover up her child while she fed.

I thought it would be really interesting to talk to someone at the beginning of their journey, to learn about the design process, the research that has gone into developing her clothes, and the challenges Louise has faced along the way. Louise is really honest about the fact it has taken a long time to get to the point of pre-launch, and I think you’re really going to enjoy this conversation.
