Wearing a Maternity Gown to Your Labour is Now a Thing. A Labour Gown?

Wearing a Maternity Gown to Your Labour is Now a Thing. Should we call it a Labour Gown?

Birthing is never sexy.  It is messy, hot, wet and frankly disgusting. So when I came across these gowns that are especially made for women in labour – I was impressed.  And quite frankly I can’t believe no one thought of it before because hospital gowns are so gross and generic. Maybe a new term “labour gown” is coming.
We really hope that wearing a maternity gown to your labour will be the next big thing!

“I loved your gown when I got it I was so excited I wanted to be in labor right that second! I got tons of compliments when I was walking the halls laboring, from nurses to other moms that were peeking their heads out of their room. A LOT of people asked me where I got it so I am sending them to your Etsy shop!

I felt like a queen in the gown, and that is exactly how a woman in labor should feel, I washed the gown and it smelled like home so that was another comfort factor, and it was pretty, it wasn’t an ugly hospital gown worn by hundreds of others. I had a 100% natural birth with a doula. I am sharing photos with you of when I just got checked in the hospital, When I was laboring in the halls with my doula, and of my newborn son wrapped in the gown.”
