Feb 2 2009 - 6:00am

Maternity maven and mother of two, Liz Lange [1] forever changed the way society viewed the baby bump — making a woman's burgeoning belly something that should be celebrated in clothing, not covered.

Her high-end apparel stocked the shelves of Liz Lange Maternity [2] boutiques on Madison Avenue, in Beverly Hills and on Long Island giving wealthy women who were "with child" outfits they could shine in. The designer also styled pregnant celebrities from Julia Roberts [3] to Reese Witherspoon [4]. Then in 2002, Liz brought that same pregnancy glow to the masses with her Liz Lange for Target [5] line. We recently had the opportunity to chat with Liz via phone about the relaunch of her signature line [6] and found out more about this amazing mama.
