Butchbaby & Co is a company specializing in alternative maternity clothes. Specifically addressing masculine tastes, it offers designs not only for 'butch' women, but also transgender and queer individuals. Dubbing the line 'alternity,' the brand shows not only the acceptance of more LGBT-friendly products, but the evolution of maternity outfits in general. Thanks to prominent pregnant celebrities, such designs have become much more stylish in general.

Founded by Vanessa Newman, the alternative maternity clothes follows the clever motto, "Don't change just because your body does." Newman partnered with Columbia College student Michelle Janayea to create the designs. The Butchbaby maternity collection will be comprised of 'work,' 'play' and 'rest' options to ensure all occasions are covered.
