    With DD I alternated between the hospital gown and being naked. For DS I got into the hospital gown as soon as they started the induction and stayed in it.

    I thought about what to wear but found that the hospital gowns were easy and did the job.

    I was naked... Clothes off labouring at home than as soon as I got to the hospital clothes off again, I just couldn't handle anything on my skin.

    Seems I'm in the minority here....

    I got a nightie from Big W maternity range, they'd probably have the same type of thing at Kmart, Target or Best n Less, just a simple sleeveless nightie with buttons up top to open for skin to skin, it was comfortable and cheap and I took my dressing gown along in case I felt cold or wanted to cover up a bit. In the end I had an emergency c so ended up wearing a hospital gown.

    Breast feeding singlet and shorts or leggings at home. DS1 I stayed in them at hospy but assume I got given a gown at some stage because I went for a csection. Ds2 and ds3 I stripped down to just a bra as soon as I got to hospital - I was in transition by then and got soooo hot.

    Default Did you wear a birthing gown? What did you wear/will you wear for labour?

    I wore a black cotton wrap around dress. Was perfect, easy access for breastfeeding as it was only lightly tied. So I could be quite exposed but still feel like I was dressed.

    I found the hospital gowns too high at the front and felt a bit claustrophobic

    I was naked.
    Was at home most of the time, and had been naked in the bath when the ambulance got here.
    Don't remember what I was wearing before that. Probably yoga pants and a singlet.

    I had bought a nice nighty when I had DS1... pity I didn't wear it. I ended up being naked cause being in labor made me radiate. I didn't even bother the 2nd time round.

    I was naked both times. First time went to hospy in pj shorts and singlet then straight into the shower, second time was having a shower waiting for midday and laboured/ birthed in the nick on the bathroom floor. Both times I had packed a cheap Kmart nightie to wear - I wouldn't spend big on something that is probably going to get ruined by all the lovely bodily fluids involved in birth!
