Pretty Pushers labor and delivery gowns are 100% cotton and made with an end goal in mind...birth. After birth, you may find that your gown is soaked, or it could be like new. Should you not want to add it to the laundry pile, we have engineered it responsibly with only 2 seams and no hems, synthetics, or trims. You can throw it out like a rag that served you very well. OR, like this customer, wash it and save for a keepsake or re-wear it for nursing at home!
