We only have a few short weeks left until Baby Girl makes her debut! I’ve started thinking about what to include in my hospital bag, and a cute maternity hospital gown was near the top of the list. With my first baby, I wore the standard hospital-issue gown for my entire stay. Which, for those of you keeping track at home, ended up being close to 2 weeks long for a myriad of issues. I felt so gross and frumpy. And, to be frank, I was embarrassed when the hospital’s newborn photographer came by to take photos of Colton and I. Am I vain? Probably. But at least I own it, and I’m planning ahead with some more stylish options this time around. That’s why I was so excited to find this cute hospital gown to pack for our little girl’s birth!
My gown is the Light Pink Floral Print Delivery/Nursing Maternity Robe from PinkBlush Maternity. I’ve written before about my love for their cute maternity clothes, so it was no surprise that I found the perfect hospital robe there too.
If you’re on the fence about bringing your own hospital gown, I would definitely recommend doing so. There will be so many photos of you laboring and especially after Baby is born, and you’ll want to look and feel as much like yourself as possible. Both for the photos and for your own sanity! Time runs together when you’re in the hospital. There’s no real concept of day or night because the nurses come to check on you at all hours, plus you’re caring for a newborn 24/7! I feel like getting dressed in some of my own clothes, as opposed to constantly wearing a hospital gown, will help break up the days.
Definitely an improvement over the neon green option my hospital provides! I know I will feel much more like myself wearing this than I did with the gross, stiff hospital-issue gown. The material on this cute maternity hospital gown is so soft and luxurious, perfect for snuggling up with a newborn babe.
Or snuggling up with a baby bump, if that’s what you have at the moment. I’m getting so anxious for our little lady to arrive! End of pregnancy is a struggle because you want Baby to stay in as long as needed, but you also want to meet them! And you want to be able to sleep without waking up to pee every 5 minutes.
Every time I wake up in the middle of the night (which, at this point, is like 10 times), I think, “At least you can go back to sleep!” Soon sleep will be but a distant memory. I relied on naps for my first and second trimesters, but my son dropped his nap a month ago. It’s been rough. He’s almost 2.5 now, so it was probably time. Doesn’t make it any easier on this pregnant mama, though!
If you’re going to be breastfeeding, a robe like this one is perfect for easy access. And trust me, you’ll need a lot of access in those early newborn days. Skin-to-skin contact and feeding on demand will help your milk supply come in as quickly as possible. I held Colton skin-to-skin as much as I could. It helps so much with bonding! I can’t wait to be able to snuggle my little girl, too.
Just a few more weeks!
Pin this cute maternity hospital gown for later!

This is cute! I personally just wore the one in the hospital for both my kids. I am not fashionable in the least so I didn’t care.
Such a cute light pink floral gown.. Looked awesome with the baby bump!
This gown is beautiful! I wish I had thought of it with my youngest ❤️ It looks so great! Good luck with the delivery!
Awww you look so beautiful. That is a beautiful gown. It almost looks like a stylish kimono. Very nice!
Congrats on the soon to arrive baby girl blessing!! You are not vain! There is nothing wrong with wanting to look nice…maybe even yourself pre-pregnancy, in photos. It is totally normal!! Enjoy every moment of this time. Blessings!!
what a pretty gown! I haven;t looked into a gown before and this will be my 4th. I guess there is a first for everything.
This is super cute, i was sick all the way through my last two pregnancies so the only thing i thought about was the end and both times i felt instantly better when they were born 🙂 my last was a girl and it was a quick labour only after she was born did i wish id got some nice clothes ?
I feel I would be the pregnant woman that always wants to look cute. The hospital gown you have is super cute. If I’m ever pregnant I would totally look for a cute one too!
This is a cute shrug. I can get one for my sister in law. this looks prettier with the baby bump. 🙂
I LOVE that gown, you look so pretty in it! Man, where were these clothes when I was pregnant? Lol
This looks really nice. Will share with my wife.
I don’t think it’s vain to want to look cute whilst staying in the hospital and nice that you’ve found you a lovely maternity gown
Pink Blush is awesome! And lots of their clothes are made in the US, which is especially great. I got mine on Etsy, and I still love it!
That maternity hospital gown looks cute on you. Pregnant women will find this helpful.
Very lovely. I got one as a gift at my baby shower so I was very happy, this would be nice and I have someone to give it to!
this is really cute! I kinda wish I had thought about getting one
You and the gown looks beautiful. Hope everything goes well as the moment of birth draws near.
I love these tips and beautiful pieces!
This is lovely! The gowns in hospitals aren’t all that are they?! And you feel pretty crap after labour so it’s nice to have something to make you feel a bit special! Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday
Thank you, Lisa! I’m hoping to feel a bit more like myself after labor this time. But mainly I’m just hoping that I don’t end up with another c-section! Fingers crossed. 🙂
This maternity gown looks beautiful #TwinklyTuesday
Thank you! I got several compliments on it in the hospital!
I didn’t wear one – too hot with all of those pregnancy hormones rushing around! #twinklytuesday
Oh yes, those pregnancy hormones are no joke!
This is gorgeous. I so know what you mean about taking your own to hospital. Hospital gowns just make you feel extra yucky at an already yucky time! Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday
I totally agree! I got lots of compliments on this one while I was in the hospital, which was nice too!
My brother recommended I might like this website. He was
entirely right. This post truly made my day.
You can not imagine simply how much time I had
spent for this info! Thanks!
Glad it was helpful!
