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!

The White Natural Birth Front Buttoned Hospital Gown

“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.”

The Blush Labour Gown

  • Price: AU$58.19
  • Stockist: Silk and More
  • Material: Rayon
  • Shipped from India

‘I made this gown keeping in mind all the needs of a mother.  Since I am tiny and I prefer gowns over robes, caftan gowns engulf me as they are one size fits all so I gave this one a bit of shape so this one can be made to order in any size ranging from Xsmall to 5x. I added snap buttons instead of eye hole buttons in front as they open up fast and you can unbutton them with one hand while holding your baby with the other hand.”

With over 23,000 sales – this labour gown must be amazing!
