About The Bump
The Bump weighs 12.5 kilos (27.5 lbs) which is the weight of a healthy average sized mum-to-be who eats normally in pregnancy. But some mums can gain a little or a lot during pregnancy and give birth to a healthy baby. So much depends on what you weighed before your pregnancy, how active you are and what type of metabolism you have.
The Bump fits into a customised wheeled case for easy transport and storage.
