Frequently Asked Questions

Do you pre-wash the gowns?

We do not pre-wash the gowns.  Due to allergies and other sensitivities we decided that it is best if your gown smells like home.  

How should I care for my delivery gown?

We recommend that you machine wash separate with cold water.  Hang to dry.  Low iron if necessary.  Our detergent of choice is "The Laundress Baby Laundry Detergent", it is made with nontoxic, biodegradable ,and allergen-free materials.  Plus they are cruelty-free and have no animal by-products.

Do the gowns come in different sizes?

Currently our gowns come in one size and they fit most pre-pregnancy sizes 0-10. 

Do the gowns soften when washed?

Our fabric will get softer with each wash, but fabric thickness and softness will vary with each fabric type.

Do the gowns shrink when placed in a dryer?

It will vary by fabric type, but some shrinking will occur when our gowns are placed in the dryer.  We recommend hang drying because shrinking could cause the snaps to not line up properly.
