What did you give birth in??
 
Hi ladies,

Sounds silly but what did you/are you giving birth in? I really can't remember what I packed the first time!! I don't plan on going in water!! thanks x

My first birth I was in a nightgown that buttoned down the front so I could breastfeed and do skin to skin immediately after birth. I had a very long labour so I changed into it when we were at the hospital and just popped it on/off whenever I went in the shower (which was often!). My second birth I was in just a nursing bra. I had a very fast labour, I was in a t-shirt and pyjama pants when we arrived at the hospital. My water broke in the car so as soon as we arrived I took off my pants and underwear, then I was really hot so I took off my t-shirt and was just in a bra. My bra popped open while I was pushing so I may as well have just been naked!

First I was induced unexpectedly so hospital gown. Second I randomly wore a nighty to bed that night. I will be getting a nighty to wear around my due date this time, since my babies come at night and fast, I don't really have time to get dressed. I threw that nighty out because it got birth stuff all over it. So a cheap nighty.

I took a nightie with me but ended up in a hospital gown. Can't even remember when/why haha. After ds was born they just folded it down for me so he could go straight on my chest. I actually think that was better than the proper nightie I took because even though that had buttons, I wouldn't have been able to get it down off my shoulders for full skin to skin.

On a side note I also bought new soft slippers to take, thinking "these will be nice for the next few weeks I'm at home with the baby too". Haha. Hahaha. They looked like a murder scene the first time I stood up after giving birth :rofl: never made it home with me!

I got slippers from ikea for $1.99! After being all over the hospital floor no way did I want those back in my house! Into the trash!

Yes, that's exactly what my mum said when I told her - "did you really want slippers you wore in the hospital back in the house with you?" I was like hmm...perhaps not haha. Although they were soft soled so I'd planned on washing them. But those things looked like a scene from Carrie the morning after he was born so I never bothered haha.

I was naked, but then I was in the water and at a birth center in the middle of the night and there were only three (four?) people on the premises. (midwife, husband, me, baby)

A nighty that actually was clean after the birth. I think it was hiked way up under me.. I plan to wear it again this time. It was easy enough to move, loose, and I was able to skin to skin/bf right after he was born.

Just a standard hospital gown.
