I'm trying to figure out what to wear during the hospital part of labor. This is my second baby. For the first I labored at home and wore whatever I wanted (yoga pants) but then when I got to hospital the nurses urged me to change into a gown, so I did. They didn't want me to have pants on becuase they could not check me, etc. (It was more difficult for them.) The embarrassing part for me was that I had back labor so I was on my knees the whole time with no coverage down there.....So we put on another gown, backwards so there was no opening. Then when the baby came I had to struggle getting off these two dumb gowns to nurse in that moment when you just want your baby on your chest. The whole this was a little annoying.
I am a little modest and would prefer to be covered up, I am not really sure if I would be comfortable naked. Also i would like to labpr in the tub, an navigste that art. So......what did you do? Any suggestions?
