    I was eventually nude for all mine. Had clothes on to get there of course but laboured in shower and had a water birth for the last one. I guess I could have had clothes on, but modesty was well and truly out the window so it never really occurred to me.

    My friend bought me a "pretty pusher"( I think that was what it was called) labouring nightie but I ended up having to have a c section so it's still sitting in it's box. Maybe if I have another baby I can use it for a VBAC.

    I had a water birth so just a crop top most of the time I was in the bath which came off not long before dd was born. Prior to that I was just in normal clothes, was expecting to be sent home to rest but instead was well established in labour

    I gave birth to my last baby during winter so bought myself a long sleeved nightie to wear. I ended up naked in the end, as you do!
    With DS it was in summer so I wore a singlet top but that came off and I ended up in just a bra. So glam. Not.

    I was in my normal clothes (jeans and a nice top) for about half of my active labor in the hospital as I wasn't expecting to go into labor and be sent to the hospital (had gone to a scheduled OB appt and told I was 5cm and to go straight to the hospital). The trackies and a singlet once my husband returned with my bag then a hospital gown when I had the epidural then naked when DS came out. Best feeling ever not really knowing you're in labor and being told you're already 5cm!

    ETA: I was a doula before having DS. I wouldn't bother with a birthing gown. Just a cheap nightie or baggie t-shirt. Whatever you'll be comfortable inane don't mind if it gets ruined.

    No just wore a cotton type gown I usually wear around the house for 4 of the births and ignored MW when they've told me to change, it's like a gown anyway, flowy open on the bust.

    I went to hospital in trackies and a singlet (3rd set of clothes after waters broke lol) ended up in just a singlet.
