There are many reasons why you may forego the traditional hospital gown on your special day!
But, the reason we set out to create Dressed to Deliver 3-in-1 birthing gowns really boils down to one thing: hospital gowns were never designed with labor and delivery in mind.
This unfortunate reality plays out for women all over the globe in the delivery room.
Why are hospital gowns so bad?....
One size does NOT fit ALL
One of our major issues with hospital gowns is their one-size-fits-all attitude! They are absolutely not one size fits all, and we have had numerous moms tell us that they have had to use two to three or even four hospital gowns to feel covered, before they used our labor gowns. Now, how awkward to be laboring in such a haphazard outfit! Gowns should come in all shapes and sizes to fit patients more closely.
Immodest accessibility ‘moments’ cannot be avoided
They definitely weren’t designed with labor and delivery in mind. There are so many uncomfortable and immodest moments when gowns have to be pulled all the way up or down during labor and delivery. There’s also no modest and easy access for epidurals or easy post C-section access for incision checks! And skin to skin after birth? Forget it! Where will baby go? You’ll have to take your gown off to get your precious newborn to your chest.
which also explains our fabric guarantee! YES, our gowns wash up so well after labor and delivery that we actually guarantee it!
Let’s just start off by saying this; fashion becomes even more important when you’re pregnant.
Your nursing gowns are hanging in your wardrobe, ready to be worn. Your doctor has given the A-OK for you and the baby.
