Delivering in Style: Hospital Gowns

Well, I’d like to pretend that I’m much closer than I really am, but the reality is that I still have a little over three months until baby girl arrives, or 14 weeks, or 98 days…or 2,352 hours—but heck, who’s counting, right?

My oldest, Cade, will be seven this summer, and by proof of this picture, there was nothing stylish or appealing about the hospital gowns available to me. (Apparently there wasn’t any makeup or a hairbrush around either, geesh!) If I’d had the colorful choices that are available today, I guarantee you, I wouldn’t have looked such a mess. I mean, whose color is hospital-greenish-white anyway?

Now, thanks to these wonderful companies (surely created by style-conscious women), we can add a little color to that special day, and hopefully, look a little cuter in our pictures too! So say goodbye to the oversized, revealing one-size-fits-all traditional hospital gowns—these stylish alternatives are hospital approved!

So whether you are delivering your first baby, facing an extended hospital stay or just want to add a little color to your special day, you can do it in comfort and style!

    You missed Mommy Moxie. She has a lining to her gown for more modesty and it makes the entire gown feel much more high quality. She also uses better snaps AND they go all the way down the arm for true medical/nursing/skin-to-skin contact.

    Katy, maybe your hospital gown is lackluster, but you look amazing in that photo after giving birth. Go mama!

  • lisa keys

    Yes you and your baby are beautiful:))

  • Melisa

    How cute are you and your hospital gown picks!! You look really, really good after birth. As strange as that just sounded ;)

    Katy, you look great without makeup don’t worry about it. As for these delivery gowns, it’s really another reason to get pregnant again!

    I really wished I looked half as fab as you did when you gave birth Katy. These are amazing, I think all hospitals’ delivery rooms should have these on hand!

  • Recreate

    Well, the first gown is rather too frilly, and judging from the way I really look after giving birth, I’m sure I’d look ridiculous in this one, with unkempt hair that’s all over the place and the bloated face. So gown number 2 would suit me just fine.

    I love as well!

    Hi I recently delivered my daughter and was given a Mommy Gown which was fantastic!
    Was the most practical hospital gown I couldve ever imagined, everyone was raving about it. And apparently they arent as costly as other designer gowns out there.. check them out if you need to give someone a baby shower gift.. was one of the better gifts I received.. !
