Everyone thinks about it, some people stew on it longer than others. What should I wear for the birth of my baby!?! Will my provider care what I wear? What will be comfortable? What will be OK to get blood on it? What will have the best “easy access”?
We asked, and you answered!
The number one response was…NOTHING!
Let’s be honest: giving birth can be HOT and messy. Most women find it the most comfortable to just be naked. It makes it easy for getting in and out of the tub or shower, easier for maneuvering into different birthing positions, and easier to get that baby out without anything extra in the way. It is also great for the immediate postpartum time for skin-to-skin time with your baby.
Other answers ranged from a birthing dress, sports bra, skirt, bathrobe, and bikini….But trust us, we have seen it all! Wear what makes you feel comfortable, and don’t wear what makes you uncomfortable! You are birthing a baby, and you don’t need to worry about what to wear or what your provider will think. All they are thinking about is taking care of you and your babe.
