Re: What to wear during labor?

comfy sleep tank (or nothing) and that's it. Afterward, I put on loose PJ pants.

Re: What to wear during labor?

Lots of good ideas! I may be totally fine with not wearing anything once I'm in labor, but I'm going to get something that I can wear just to ease my mind until then. I don't want to be trying to focus through contractions and make sure my butt isn't showing at the same time . Plus, if I choose to go outside during labor it would probably be best to wear something...haha. I'm looking at either a t-shirt dress with a scoop neck (so it would be easy enough for nursing) from target, or a sports bra and skirt from old navy. Maybe I'll go with both, that way if I get in the tub with any of it on I can still have something dry to wear!

Re: What to wear during labor?

For my home birth I wore a sleep/nursing bra. I'm sure I had something covering my bottom before I got in the tub, but I honestly can't remember what. I had another similar bra with panties and a nursing gown ready for when we got out of the tub.

Nothing- LOL! I take a bath in mid-labor and then naked after that. Baby comes, we go skin to skin with a blanket or sheet over both of us... I put on a nursing night gown after the first night.

Re: What to wear during labor?

I'm currently in testing phases for a birthing skirt, so when my time comes in Nov, I'll wear that and probably a tank.

Re: What to wear during labor?

Nothing Being naked in labor feels so much nicer. I'll probably be in and out of the tub, too, so getting dressed and undressed is just 1 less step to deal with. Last time I just stayed in my clothes I put on that day until I decided to get in the tub. Then they never went back on! I'm also delivering in a birth center, and I plan to pack my bag with a few stretchy maternity tanks and some yoga pants or flowy skirts for afterwards.
