I wore a hospital gown during both my labor and deliveries.  After the delivery, I showered and changed into one of the nightgowns I brought. The hospital wasn't really warm so I wore a pair of pj pants under my night gown to keep my legs warm. I also packed a robe and a pair of slippers to keep me warm when I was walking the halls.

I wore the hospital gown and changed after the baby was born.  The hospital would not let me keep on my bra - something about if they had to cut it off for some reason.

They kept making me get on all fours so the gown I wore ended up on the floor. I was naked as a jay bird other than the sheet my husband and coach kept putting over me. I had back labor and a semi rough delivery so that gown was the least of my worries.
