Welcome to LaborLooks

What is LaborLooks?
Laborlooks is a new company started by a Labor and Delivery Nurse and a Certified Nurse Midwife. We found a need and we are trying to fill it!

When you arrive at the hospital, either in labor, for a planned c-section, an induction, your water is broken, or for observation you are handed a generic blue and white hospital gown.

If you are lucky this gown has ties. If you are lucky you only need one to cover your behind. If you are lucky it has only been used and worn by 50 or so other women in your position. If you are lucky there are no holes, rips, or unidentifiable stains.

As hospital workers we have often smiled and pretended that these kind of gowns never are given to patients and we act shocked and embarassed when we hand you one that appears to have gone through the shredder/trashcan/biohazard/landfill/etc.

So we have come up with a solution. An affordable, stylish hospital gown. It has all of the features necessary for any potential hospital plan. Hoping that it will lead to beautiful pictures when you bring the most beautiful child into the world.
