You might just want to snatch up this adorable little dress that's built to carry you through every part of childbirth.
Hospital gowns aren't exactly haute couture. We can all agree on that, right? That's fine—after all, if you're lying on a hospital bed, chances are fashion is the last thing on your mind. But if you had the chance to wear something really cute—yet still very comfortable and functional—while delivering your baby, would you choose that?
Now you have the option to add a little style to your birthing attire (and since your kiddo's uncles and aunts now seem to be stepping up their fashion game, why not you, too?). Latched Mama, a brand that creates adorable, affordable nursing wear, has launched a labor dress. Yup, that's right: It's a seriously cute, stylish dress that's meant to be worn by a woman while she is giving birth.
Now, we know what you're thinking: Who wants to hassle with real clothes when you're suffering contractions and pushing? And how would it even work out—it's no secret that moms in labor often get poked and prodded, and hospital staff need a way to get in and do what they need to do while helping them deliver.
But that's the thing about this dress: It was designed specifically for mamas in labor, and it has plenty of features that support the act. There are snaps that make it a cinch to perform skin-to-skin, and the fabric comes away easily when you need to breastfeed. Need proof? Check out this Instagram sneak peek Latched Mama shared.
Oh happy day! Introducing the Latched Mama Labor Dress! Because in beauty there is confidence... and because in confidence there is strength. (There are snaps at the shoulders for skin to skin, down the front for monitoring, and back for epidural placement- AND the neck pulls down or unsnaps for easy breastfeeding ❤️) #youhaveoptions #youarentsick

We love how multi-functional this dress is—it's something you can wear to the hospital when you're giving birth, and it can probably be re-purposed for moms when they nurse their babies as well. Would you prefer to wear something like this as opposed to a standard hospital gown?
