Pretty Pushers. Modern, disposable delivery gowns!
My son decided that life outside of the womb was not such a good idea, so I had to be induced. The preparation behind this induction was pretty extravagant. There were questions, monitors, waivers to sign, and of course – a gown. I remember my nurse saying to me, “I made sure to pick out one without any blood stains.”
Now, I'm sure she was just kidding, but the thought horrified me! So, when Mom Central was contacted about the possibility of featuring a new line of disposable, stylish delivery gowns, I thought it would be a great choice to share with readers.
Pretty Pushers offers four different options in gowns to choose from. I was sent the 100% organic cotton disposable delivery gown to try out. Of course, I have not yet had my baby, so I have not actually used the gown in the hospital. However, I did try on the gown to see what my thoughts were on it.
First of all, it is extremely soft and light weight. I remember at one point in the hospital that I was so hot that I just wanted to strip down. Labor is hard work and will make you hot! Not only is the gown soft, but it is pretty. I never thought I would say that I felt pretty in a hospital gown. The 100% Organic Cotton Pretty Pusher features a beautiful frill design around the neck as well as along the bottom.
Practicality was also taken into consideration when creating the Pretty Pushers line. There is a low open back that is suitable for an epidural while keeping your bottom covered. This means no more flashing everyone from behind! There is also an opening in the front that has a double tie closure. This opening is meant for any monitoring that the hospital may need to use around your belly. With my first pregnancy, they had to continually come in and lift my gown to adjust the monitors. The top is also roomy enough for nursing your baby after birth. Once you are done, you simply throw the gown away!
Pretty Pushers also has a commitment to the environment. Instead of using synthetic fibers, pure cotton and water-based inks are used. 60% of the paper used in the packaging is recycled and millions of gallons of water and chemicals are not being used on the washing of all the hospital gowns.
The Pretty Pushers gowns retail for about $22 and can be purchased at several stores and online boutiques across the United States. Find a retailer near you by visiting the Pretty Pushers website.
FYI: You may want to check with the hospital you plan on delivering in to make sure there is no policy on hospital gowns before you purchase a Pretty Pusher gown.
