People fixate on a lot of things when they're about to have a baby. Will the baby eat? Will they sleep? Will I sleep? (The answers, generally, are yes, sometimes, and maybe).

When I was pregnant with my son, I had all the normal concerns, but for some reason, the thing I couldn't stop thinking about was...what coat was I going to wear? I live in a relatively cold climate, and my due date was in late December. In the weeks leading up to his birth, I was trekking to twice-weekly doctor's appointments. My normal coat pulled against my belly. Being massively pregnant was uncomfortable enough, I didn't need to be cold and constricted, too.

I spent a lot of time researching the best maternity coats, and the Seraphine 3-in-1 parka kept cropping up. There are whole Reddit threads praising it, it has numerous great reviews, and it snagged the top spot in our maternity coat test.

I had some specific requirements: This coat had to be useful after my baby was born. I was due fairly early into the winter—I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a coat that I would use for a month. It had to be well-insulated, cozy, and comfortable. And, last but not least, I wanted it to look nice. Being pregnant and postpartum is tough; I craved a little bit of luxury.

This coat hit all the marks, and it continues to do so. I wore it to the hospital when I delivered, on my way back home with my baby, and then again and again in the months after he arrived. I'm looking forward to wearing it a lot more this year as it gets colder. And for Cyber Monday this coat, along with all maternity coats on Seraphine's site, is on sale for the best price of the year: 50% off.

The coat has a few nifty features that make it so useful: The detachable kangaroo panel allows you to expand the coat when you're baby-wearing, or you can take it off when you're out and about solo. A drawstring along the waist allows you to gather the coat close around your baby when you're wearing them, and gives you a nice silhouette when you're not. The pockets are roomy, so you can leave your purse at home. The faux fur lining is incredibly soft, and the detachable hood means that you don't need a hat—one fewer thing to forget or lose.

Daily walks really saved my mental health in those initial weeks and months postpartum, and this coat made it possible for both of us to be comfortable outside, even on the chilliest winter days. As a new parent it's often easy to put your own comfort last, but this coat was a small reminder that I deserved to feel warm, cozy, and cared-for, too.
