The hospital I most often work with is fine with mom's wearing whatever they choose to during their stay. Some moms opt for the provided hospital gown, while others bring along an oversized tshirt that reminds them of home. Still, other mamas choose something a little more feminine and elegant during this sacred and life-changing time.
I've compiled a few suggestions for gowns that might be fitting during labor. You might be a mama looking just to wear something unique, or, you might want to add just a little touch of beauty and elegance to your wardrobe on "labor day." Whichever category you fall into, here are some ideas!
Pretty Pushers are probably the most well known labor gown on the market. These gowns are comfortable and too cute! They make an assortment of colors and styles and they range in price from $29 to $129.
Comfy Clothing (on Etsy) offers this gorgeous and modest robe. Complete with snaps on the shoulders for breast feeding access. They offer custom orders also, for mama's who are looking to add their own unique style to their birth apparel. This robe is $35
Dressed to Deliver has thought of just about everything with their timeless gown. Made of bamboo fabric, this 3-in-1 gown is breathable and anti-microbial. There are hidden snaps here and there for easy access to all the parts you might need during labor or post partum! Their gowns range in price from $49.99 to $52
Gownies: Delivery Gowns offers a few mommy and baby options for after baby arrives! These gowns look to be breezy and comfortable, but still so cute! The Gownies gowns range in price from $29.99 to $67.98.
Really, there's no right or wrong when it comes to what you choose to wear during labor. It all comes down to how you feel most comfortable. This is your birth and, in the end, what you are wearing (or not wearing) will likely be the furthest thing from your mind when the big event occurs!
