Maternity scrubs are just comfortable… plain and simple. Whether you wear them for a specific job or want to just lounge around in them, they can be a great (and comfy) addition to your pregnancy wardrobe.

Scrubs can be worn for many reasons. For some, it’s a job uniform and something that they need to wear, even when they are pregnant. For others, maternity scrubs are simply super comfortable and can be put on at any time. They are soft and come with some elasticity for all those blossoming curves, and they are easy to put on and take off. They are machine washable, meaning they are simple to keep clean and maintain, not to mention they come in endless colors, patterns, and styles to really show off your personality.

And maternity scrubs aren’t just for when you are pregnant – they can be extremely wearable post-partum too. Some of the tops have a scoop neck or tie closed, and they can be practical to have on during breastfeeding.

Maternity scrubs aren’t just for those who are pregnant in the medical field – they can also make for really comfortable loungewear around the house, they can be a great option to wear in the hospital while giving birth, and they can be the ideal thing to stay cool and comfy once you are home post-partum. The tops and bottoms are normally manufactured from soft, lightweight materials that will keep you relaxed, cool, and dry. They oftentimes have elastic enclosures to take them on and off quickly and easily, and some are even adjustable thanks to ties and cords.

Maternity scrubs are also practical. Designed with functionality in mind, many maternity scrub tops have pockets to carry must-have essentials. They might also be designed to be longer in the torso to accommodate your baby bump, or have built-in belly panels to give you coverage and additional support.
