Hello to all who might be reading this!

I know this is an unusual question, but since I've now found myself in need of a maternity uniform, I was wondering what other have done in this situation. It took me months, but I was finally able to track down a Navy (military, not color) khaki maternity shirt that I will be able to wear with my uniform, but I'm sure I'm not the first pregnant female to work in Pathfinders. Since I have the Southern Union Camporee coming up in September, I wanted to be in uniform with everyone else. The hard time I've had finding a maternity shirt made me start wondering what have other people done? I was just wondering.

God bless you all in the work you do for HIM!

I can't help you with the uniform question, but I do want to offer my congratulations!

Best hopes in your pregnancy!

I know of a few ladies around the AZ Conference who have done the same. The Navy and Marine Corp. of the US both have nearly identical Khaki shirts they make in maternity style. I know that the BSA make women's uniforms for moms who are pack leaders, I have not the time to look but I suspect they have a maternity Khaki available as well.

God Bless,

Thanks for the help. I thought about the BSA, but wasn't able to find any information. I'll see if I can continue looking, for anyone who else who might be interested.

Thanks, Scott. It was nice seeing you @ Red Zone. I hope you get some rest over the summer, and I hope you can make it to Leadership convention.

C U there!

Iris,

For anyone interested you should watch the local public safety uniform suppliers. Some recent union actions, law suites... across the country are forcing the production of law enforcement uniforms for maternity wear. Many Florida agencies use Khaki so just walking into a supplier (if you can not find one ask a deputy or municipal officer) and ask, they can likely get it.


God Bless,

I have been in this situation, in 1990. I was a counselor in our Pathfinder club when I became pregnant with our third son. I finished out the Pathfinder year in May without having to change anything of my Pathfinder dress uniform, but I did not wear my belt nor my sash. Over the summer, my husband and I were asked to serve as leaders for the pilot program for the new Adventurer club. I simply found a jumper and a white maternity blouse to wear until after the baby was born. I sewed the patches on my sleeves and wore the scarf and slide, but again I chose not to wear a sash and, of course, no belt. I didn't seek approval of my choices, but I do remember several positive comments about my uniform. And with all the others, congratulations! Hope to see you at Southern Union Camporee.

My wife found an "expandable" elastic kind of black cotton skirt AND pair of pants that worked for her. campmoor.com I believe.

Congrads, when is the young one due into the world?

While my 14 month old son doesn't have a uniform (yet) my mother in law took one of my old BRIGHT RED Area Coordinator shirts, and made a "kimono/onsie" out of it. He looked so cute in it (it fit him for the first three PF events, about 6 months. They grow so fast!)

Again, congrads.

I've now used my new maternity uniform three times and I love it. Because it's a Navy-issue maternity shirt, the material is very think (not a good thing for a hot, hot summer in Florida), but it is still very comfortable. It's so comfortable that I want to keep using the shirt even after I give birth in November. :D

For anyone who will be going to the Southern Union Camporee in a month, you'll be able to see me sporting the new uniform: hot, sweaty, baggy, maternity shirt.

Thanks to all who have expressed their well wishes. If I could post a picture of my little boy when he's born, I would. Brad and I would greatly appreciate your prayers for a healthy and safe birth for Micah David Hillmon.

God bless you all!
