    Gown that was perpetually gaping with my first.

    Leggings and oversized Tshirt with second. They came off when waters broke and I got in shower...so, starkers. Couldn't be bothered with clothes by this stage!

    I just bought a second-hand nightie for labour, as I expected it to be most likely unwearable after that occasion anyhow. I ended up only wearing it for about half an hour, as I spent most of the labour in the bath, and remained naked for the rest of it. Lol!

    Both times I was in an old tshirt of DH's. I was induced first time around and things got intense very quickly so I was in the shower from early on. Therefore, naked for 90% of the labour. With DD I still had the shirt on when she decided to hurriedly arrive, and I had to peel it off very quickly and ungracefully for skin to skin contact.

    Third I wore a pregnancy singlet top and a pair of gym tights, and then just got naked.


    I've never heard of a birthing gown in my life.
    The midwife had to pull my undies off in a hurry otherwise they'd have ended up on DS's head!! And yeah, what exactly is a "birthing gown" anyway? How is it different to just a nightie?

    It's essentially a dressing gown that wraps around so it's a dress. I remember I could wear it around and nothing was showing it just looked like a dress. I can't really remember how it works. It's designed to be easy access but give you a bit of dignity- how funny! I can't remember but I paid over $50 for it lol.

    Destroyed!

    My birth with my second was so quick that I only just got my trackies off in time as I got into the birthing suite. I birthed her wearing a maternity t-shirt that I was wearing that day, she was born just 15 minutes after I got in the birthing suite.

    I think I arrived in a singlet and pj pants and they came off pretty quick, there were so many cords and monitors clothes would have just got in the way..

    At home and when I arrived at hospital I just wore whatever I was dressed in that Day but then got in shower and then birth pool for births so was naked. Both births at birthcentre so didn't need to cover up at all. I think I took my comfy dressing gown for after the second time.

    As I wrote before - I had all the best intentions. Went to hospital in trackies and maternity top last night. Changed into night shirt in the birthing suite. Took everything off for the epidural and stayed that way!
