Win a Maternity Hospital Gown from Healthy Moms and LaborLooks

Posted Nov 19 2008 1:46am

Are you expecting a baby? Maybe you know someone who is. When I had my babies I wanted to feel comfortable during my hospital stay. But I had to wear the old, scratchy, uncomfortable gown that the hospital provided. Wouldn't it be nice to wear something stylish and comfortable during your hospital stay?

Labor and Delivery Nurse & Certified Nurse Midwife created LaborLooks with the expectant mother in mind. Here is what they have to say about their company and products.

" The Birth of LaborLooks:

Laboring and recovering women often ask us if they can wear their own clothes in the hospital. As much as we try to support this request, it typically does not work. There are practical reasons hospital gowns are used during and following labor: IV access, epidural access, fetal heart rate monitoring, baby access and breastfeeding-- to name a few. Normal clothing does not allow for the efficient access we need to provide the best care possible for mom and baby.

We want women to have something familiar to wear--something practical, comfortable and reasonably priced that they can bring with them to the hospital. Women plan for quite some time to have a baby (or at least 9-months) and should have a comfortable and stylish gown-- something they actually want to wear on that special day-- something that will look good in pictures for years to come.

There are a few companies out there with similar ideas, but either the gowns are impractical for the hospital setting or highly overpriced. Our goal is to allow everyday Moms (like myself!) to have the opportunity to be comfortable and confident in their dress while in the hospital."
