Getting pregnant wasn't easy for us and I had a lot of appointments where I became VERY familiar with the deficiencies of the traditional hospital gown! Having had to wear one for months, during daily tests and ultrasounds, I quickly realized how uncomfortable, immodest and unfashionable the ugly blue hospital gown really was! I was ALWAYS focused on trying to conceal myself as best as possible as I scurried from the change room to the examination table and it was a VERY uncomfortable experience!
I had a few friends who had already had babies and asked them how they felt when they delivered in the blue 'peek-a-boo' hospital gowns. They ALL told me how they hated wearing the hospital gowns, - they were uncomfortable, ugly and I also learned that they were not at all functional once baby arrived, as they didn't provide immediate access for skin-to-skin and breastfeeding your new baby. They all found that they had to take the hospital gown off to breastfeed their newborn! I was even more HORRIFIED and knew there had to be another option!
In 2012, during the birth of my son I wore the Plumeria birthing gown! While I was encouraged to change into a hospital gown I stuck to the plan and chose to wear something that made me feel comfortable, confident and beautiful! For me it was the first step toward a more empowering labor!
As the premiere product that inspired Dressed to Deliver, every last detail of The 3-in-1 Birthing Gown is made with expectant mothers and the birthing experience in mind. It has all the features of a hospital gown with discreet access for fetal monitoring, IVs & epidural administration, as well as C-section incision inspections & healing access. Dressed to Deliver 3-in-1 Birthing Gowns are ALSO cleverly designed so that they can also be worn as a maternity & postpartum/nursing dress with easy access for skin-to-skin contact & breastfeeding.
At Dressed to Deliver, we strongly believe every woman deserves to feel comfortable, confident, concealed and beautiful – before, during and after one of the most important days of her life! Every woman should choose to wear what makes them feel like the strong, competent, confident and beautiful mom that they are. Our hope is that our 3-in-1 birthing gowns provide you with the comfort and confidence to enhance your experience of labour.
Sincerely, Julie Berg
