    @MarryMeTiffany:  Before even considering it, check with the hospital or birthing center where you will be delivering to see if it’s allowed.  Many won’t because of sanitation concerns.

    That would be a complete waste of money. Is this your first baby? The amount of blood, amniotic fluid, sometimes feces and sweat that you will deal with is sooooooooo much better left on the hospital gown,

    Get yourself a cute nursing nightie or pyjama set to wear afterwards.

    I whole heartedly agree with @julies1949:! Even if, by some chance, the hospital lets you wear your own gown…you are definitely not going to want to keep that thing on after the delivery is over!

    Get yourself something cute and, most importantly, something comfy to wear after the baby is here!

    @MarryMeTiffany:  

    I had one! I loved it! I felt particulary disgusting when I went in to have my daughter, so the fancy gown made me feel kinda cute! The pics of me wearing it always make people laugh bc they think its ridiculous and cute at the same time, lol. I have it hanging in my closet (it’s clean) and plan to wear it with my second child!

    I wouldn’t spend the money personally. Honestly, I flat out wouldn’t want to have to take it home with me to clean. I have been debating making a cheap labor skirt that I can just throw away after birth so that my butt isn’t hanging out of a gown the whole time, though. It certainly won’t be worth $55.

    From my understanding its gonna be messy so, a designer gown will just get ruined.

    I’m planning to bring a long nightshirt with me to the hospital because it will be more comfortable than the gown they provide. But I would feel bad if I spent more than $15 on it, because I’m planning to let the nurses throw it away when all is said and done!

    @MarryMeTiffany:  thats kinda pricey…my doctor sells adorable gowns (that are approved for the hospital she’ll be delivery me at) and she sells them for either $15 or $25…can’t remember. I’d consider it and I did consider it….it’s just fun to look adorable while laboring instead of washed out in the pale green or whatever..

    I am more invested in a 2-3 nightgowns and matching robes for hosipital stay and afterwards….and some super plush slippers:))))

    I got me 2 comfy long fitted tanks that I can wear through labor. 1 smaller than the other so I can wear it on top….. it’s black so I don’t have to worry as much about ruining it. They were 12 bucks each.

     

    ETA: As eloping said…. naked is a pretty popular option too! Given I’m leaning toward a birthing photographer being here and DS also being here I am trying to NOT end up naked. lol

    NO way! I looked them up on etsy and they look like loud and obnoxious, unflattering moomoos to me. But hey, that’s just me!

    I would rather spend the money on a new pair of fabulous wedges or maybe some wall paint for my dining room…. 😉

    Besides, that thing will probably get a lot of poop/placenta/fluid/blood whatever else on it… I wouldn’t want to ruin something I spent money on!

    Lol, I’m much too cheap,  but if you think it’ll make you feel more comfortable during labor, go for it!  It’s your money, so if you want a designer birthing gown, you should get one!

    @runsyellowlites:  my friend had a photographer also and she didnt even think about her being naked – obviously she had other things on her mind at the time
