    Usually comfy pj's. That said I normally birth in the middle of the night.

    Highly recommend yoga pants! Nice wide waste band to support the jelly belly and the stretch is oh so comfy. Mine were black as I was paranoid about leaks. I think I wore a breastfeeding singlet and button up pj top with them. I pretty much lived in yoga pants my entire hospital stay, will be stocking up this time too!

    i would also have a pair of loose shorts (think boxers style) just in case you end up with a catheter for whatever reason as tight pants are a pain in the bum with those.
    Good tip.

    Not clothes - but I would get some super nice travel sized toiletries to make you feel nice after birth/during your hospital stay.

    I always feel bad for women when I help get them up for showers post birth/caesar and they've forgotten toiletries and have to use the hospital soap.
    Definitely this with the toiletries! I am scouring the shops now for some beautiful body washes and lotions to make me feel lovely after bubs comes

    Definitely something comfy. I had a Caesar and couldn't wait to be able to get dressed. I chose pj pants with a bf singlet. It felt so good having a shower I felt really self conscious that all the visitors didn't get the hint to leave as I was laying in the bed pretty much naked bar a hospital gown

    I just wore black pj pants - plain ones from Kmart, breastfeeding singlets and a long cardi with pockets.

    A PP has mentioned this already, but pj pants make it a bit tricky if you have a catheter in. (You have to thread the tube up the leg). I've bought a couple of Kmart nighties this time for that reason.

    I wore comfy loose clothes that looked a bit better than trackies. I felt like I wanted to be pretty as I could because I didn't feel too good so wanted to do my makeup etc and look as good as I could, but obviously loose and comfy lol

    I wore leggings and tunic tops/button up tips for breastfeeding.
    I find breastfeeding singlets (like target ones) clumsy with a newborn as I can't see my whole nipple and Bub gets singlet in their mouth. I prefer almost completely stripping off, so usually had a breastfeeding bra and button up shirt on.
