What did you wear in labor?

Posted by   + Show Post

So, I keep hearing that there is a point in labor when you no longer care about modesty.  That will be wonderful, but until then...I'm a pretty modest person.  

I don't want to wear the hospital gown....it's just ew.  

I think we've settled on a t-shirt I have that is really stretchy to come down pretty far and cover my rear and such.  The doula also suggested laboring with yoga pants on for awhile.  

The shirt pulls down from my chest easily for the skin to skin/breastfeeding.  

What did you wear for labor?

I labor at home so I just wear whatever I'm wearing when I go into labor. :-)

Oh now that you mention it I believe they do they do sell sports bras for breast feeding. I think I'm going to look for one this time ;) 

Quoting anxiousschk:

I love the idea but can't find a sports bra that will easily/comfortably let me nurse.  The sports bra just looks comfortable :)

I wore a men's white t shirt and yoga pants with a sports bra underneath. Everything but the bra came off when it was time to push.

I just wore hospital gowns. This time I want to buy a cute one but I have no problem with modesty in a hospital. They've seen it all and don't care. :)

I wore pj bottoms and my bathing suit tank. I stayed dressed until I got in the birth pool when I was nude from the waist down.
