This will be my first waterbirth (in the hospital), and I've been trying to decide what I want to take to wear, but I thought it might be helpful to open up a discussion about what to wear in labor in general.
My first three I just wore hospital gowns, because I didn't know you could even consider wearing anything different. With my youngest, I wore a cotton nightgown that was knee length and had spaghetti straps-easy access down below for the birth and up top for ease of breastfeeding.
Since I do plan to give birth in a pool this time, I'm kind of unsure what to take. I'm not comfortable being completely naked, or only having a bra or swim top on. My tankini top is actually long enough to mostly cover me, but I'm wondering if that will feel too constricting. I'm kinda thinking bikini top or bra with a long thin tank top. I don't think I'll want bottoms of any kind on once I'm actually at the hospital and in active labor.
So, thoughts, experiences, suggestions?
