I wore one of dh's old shirts to start with but I ended up naked when I was pushing as I felt too hot. Once Dd was born they gave me a hospital gown which I kept open at the front to do skin to skin.

I wore a maternity singlet and leggings on the way to hospital with dd. it was winter but I don't remember feeling cold.
Not long after I arrived I had to take my pants off so the middies could check my dilation and they never went back on again. I just had slathered towel draped over my lap.
I assume someone changed me before I got taken into theatre (ended up being an assisted birth) because I remember being in recovery in a fetching blue hospital gown. Don't remember changing, though.

I bought a Womama or whatever they're called birthing gown. But I was pretty much naked the whole time!

I arrived at hospital in a mid thigh length dress which was removed as soon as they did a ve, and agreed I was actually in labour and needed to be there, as I then laboured in the shower on my hands and knees as it was the only position that was even remotely comfortable.
Then when I moved to the bed they just put a sheet over me. For someone who normally is very modest and likes to be covered, I didn't even think twice about being naked in front of anyone.
TBH I didn't even think about what I was going to wear before hand.

I bought a beautiful birthing gown/ wrap around dress.
I spent the whole time with it wide open. It may as well not even been on.
And it got completely destroyed by all the blood.
So a waste of money

a nice nighty, a old t shirt, hospital gown or nothing. Different Births.

I had a loose fitting cotton nightie from best and less. I didn't care if it got ruined and needed to be trashed. I wore it up until I got in the shower. Then I was just in a sports crop top from then on.
All about comfort for me during labour. Save the pretty dressing gown for after when you have visitors or want pics IMO
