Additionally, Rosie makes an exciting announcement to her staff.

Episode #2 – Taming the Tiger and the Terror
Rosie comes face-to-face with two completely different moms-to-be. The first, Eelain, is super-strict and wants Rosie to help her set the disciplinary tone of her household before her baby arrives by training her dog…and her lazy husband.

Episode #4 – The Trouble with Twins

Corrie's over-bearing mother wants to be the live-in baby nurse and has plenty of unwanted opinions. Rosie’s second client, Nia, wants help detoxifying her house, but Rosie thinks Nia may be taking things too far when she finds out that she isn't planning to vaccinate her baby.

Episode #5 – Rosie’s Relationship Retreat
In this one-of-a-kind episode, Rosie takes on two struggling couples and prescribes the same remedy for both: a babymoon in the Dominican Republic. It’s not all rest and relaxation on this vacation though. Rosie’s first client, Jennifer, can’t stop bossing her husband around.

Patrice needs a whole new wardrobe for her changing body, and even though she despises maternity clothes, she's relying on Rosie to dress her. Elizabeth, on the other hand, is a type-B personality, stay-at-home mom who has sacrificed her personal goals for her family. It’s up to Rosie to see if there’s still time to make some of Elizabeth’s dreams come true.

Episode #7: Welcome to Hollywood
Rosie and her family travel to Los Angeles for the grand opening of her west coast Rosie Pope Maternity store.

Meanwhile, Victor and Chris are two dads looking for an extra special push present for their surrogate.

Episode #8: The Pregnancy Dating Dilemma
It's an exciting week for Rosie as she and her husband Daron finally find out if they're having a baby boy or girl. Meanwhile, Rosie goes out of town with Aimee and Seth, who hope that having a baby won't get in the way of their affinity for road trips. Back in New York City, Rosie meets Akua, a soon-to-be single mom who's determined to find a man now.

Episode #9: The Case of the Ghost-Infested Nursery 
Parenthood is always a little scary, but this week's clients take things to a whole new level! First, clients Joann and Damon ask Rosie to help get their nursery ready... by cleansing the room of a ghost! Across town, Rosie’s second client Emily is dealing with a fear of the inevitable labor. Rosie will go to all lengths to prepare Emily for her delivery, even if it means experiencing childbirth virtually.

Episode #10: A Labor of Love – Rosie Gives Birth
In the season two finale, with just one week left before her third baby is due, Rosie takes on only one client... but if she was expecting an easy week, she should think again. Emanuelly is a second-time mom who fears that her past inability to breastfeed may happen again, and requests the unimaginable. Meanwhile, Rosie's husband Daron and assistant Alison notice that Rosie’s falling behind on preparing for her own new baby. When they confront her about it, Rosie realizes that she's turned into her very own client.

She then turned her sights to academics and enrolled in Columbia University on a Presidential Scholarship to study neuroscience. In 2008, Pope birthed the idea for Rosie Pope Maternity after simply finding nowhere to shop for fashionable clothing during her own pregnancy. She now has two stores one in New York and one in Santa Monica. Her philosophy is for women everywhere to celebrate this time in their lives with fashions that are worthy of photographing and remembering for years to come.

In 2010, having already established herself as the trusted guru for stylish mothers including Hollywood elite the idea to offer classes through MomPrep was "born." Today, she is regularly sought after by the media for her advice on style for moms and lives happily in New York City with her husband Daron and her two sons, J.R. and Wells.

"After meeting Rosie I realized how complex the maternity fashion business was, and since I already have so much experience growing up surrounded by babies, it was a perfect fit!"

Lawrence LT Thompson
Lawrence "LT" Thompson is Rosie Pope’s fashionista assistant who is not afraid to tell it like it is. LT spent his childhood as the fifth in a line of six children, and experienced childcare first-hand by helping take care of his nieces and nephews before he was a teenager. Originally from Virginia, LT’s big break came when he had the opportunity to tour Europe as part of the cast of an off-Broadway show, which lead to a gig around Japan as a singer and performer.

Shortly after, LT moved to New York City to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology, where he studied marketing and advertising. His love for fashion prevailed, and after college he did public relations for fashion companies and magazines. LT met Rosie when she was pregnant with her first child, J.R., and he helped Rosie open her first store.
