Best Labor and Delivery Gowns

Choose something loose and sleeveless or short-sleeved. Look for gowns with buttons or velcro in the back and with snaps in the front that allow for skin time and nursing access (if that’s your feeding choice.)

Kindred Bravely Universal Labor and Delivery Gown

It has durable velcro in the front and back, and it’s as comfortable as your favorite, super soft T-shirt! It also has deep pockets (always a win!) and comes in different colors and patterns.

It’s stylish and comes in lots of fun patterns and colors. We especially love the empire waist, which makes it a great fit no matter your belly size at the time of delivery. The wrap bottom allows for the easiest fetal monitoring access we’ve seen, plus it has snaps in all the right places.
