Gown/Robe for Delivery

Has anyone else started looking for a gown/robe for the delivery room? All the ones I've found are RIDICULOUSLY priced. Like to the point I'm considering making mine... Or attempting to. Does anyone have any better suggestions?

  • Ok, STMs, would something like this be as functional as they're claiming it to be?

  • I personally find them a waste of money. You are going to labor in it and probably ruin it because it will get stuff all over it so IMO it is not really something I want to spend the extra on.

    I'm currently arguing with my mom about the fact that I'm allowed to wear a bra.

  • not worth it to me- the hospital gown was perfectly comfortable for the moment
    I did however make sure to take my brother's socks for delivery, which my mom had worn in a couple surgeries, I just wanted to include him some how since he's not with us.<b

  • I know people love the pretty gowns, and they do look nicer, but I just couldn't spend the money on them. Anything I wear for the first 24 hours is ruined, not to mention what I wore during delivery.

    Our hospital has nursing gowns. They aren

  • The pretty pushers look cute. But if you are large chested either normally or just because your getting ready to nurse I would think the last thing you want is a halter top.

    Ill prob get one for the pics after. Make it look like I labored all cute in a gown. Haha. Ill also be wearing a sports bra at the most. If I am able to do a water birth then a tankini top. Or that's the plan at least.

  • We're free to wear what ever we choose at the hospital I had DD at. I labored in the clothes I had on that day because I was comfortable (tee, jersey knit skirt). Once my water broke I changed into a long sleep shirt, boy shorts (refused cervical check

  • I wouldn't bother... I puked and bled all over my delivery gown. I'm definitely using the hospitals this time around and will change into some soft cute jammies after all is said and done.

  • My concern isn't so much with the vanity or looking good. It's more I don't foresee the hospital gowns being overly comfortable.

  • I wouldn't spend the money. Cute, yes. Functional, no. I went out and bought some cute/comfy clothing to labor in. By the time the real thing started, I could have cared less what I was wearing. Not to mention, I wouldn't want to worry about my water brea

  • I've had quite a few surgeries, and I associate hospital gowns with being sick.

    The birthing gowns are supposed to be just as a accessible to the staff as a regular one. I plan to ask my hospital in advance and then get one. I don't care what

  • I bought a couple of comfy nightgowns for the hospital. It turned out to be a good idea, as I was in the hospital 8 days and 7 nights. It was nice to be able to wear something that felt normal. During the peak of labor and delivery, I was just naked, thou

  • I know everyone is different, but the last thing I wanted after I gave birth was pants. Nurses and doctors poke and prod you for we'll over a day after you have your kid. You're bleeding all over the place and will most likely have an ice pack in between

  • Buy some pajamas for after the delivery.

    What you wear to birth a child gets covered in blood and poop, so you don't want to just have one. I went through two or three gowns and ended up naked.

  • I guess I should say its more for labor than delivery. The one in the link I posted has ties on the belly for fetal monitor and a slit in the back for the epidural which I'm wanting to try to avoid, as well as being functional for breastfeeding and skinto

  • Well, if your goal is to avoid the epidural, you can labour at home. By the time I got to the hospital, I was far enough along in labour they could have dressed me in anything and I would have neither noticed nor cared. In fact, that's why I ended up n
