The Kobieta™ Labor & Delivery Skirt is perfect for home, water births, birthing centers or hospitals and helps the laboring mama retain modesty while being completely comfortable.

***I know this ad is long but PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY!!***
**Sizing, ordering and shipping timelines, fabric description and other VERY IMPORTANT details are included in this listing**


My design uses a drawstring to adjust to the perfect position on your hips.....underneath the belly for anyone needing hospital monitoring. Back is fully exposed for epidural needs. You may add a matching Bandeau to your skirt(as seen in detail in picture 3). Made from the same soft fabric as your skirt, this simple top is easy on, 'barely there' comfort and easy to move away for nursing your new baby right away.

Please leave bust size in checkout notes if this is selected to be added on. Please note, this is not a typical bra loaded with elastic. It is a buttery soft stretch knit designed to not be binding or pinching in any way.

The skirt is designed to cover when standing but layered and split all the way to the waist to slide apart easily so that positions like birthing balls, squatting or birthing stools are able to be used. When the time for pushing comes, the flaps easily slide or flip up out of the way. No need to remove the skirt.

Paired with the matching bandeau, or your own sports bra or tank, you can use this skirt to enjoy full mobility and comfort in a time you need it most! No pinching, no binding, just buttery soft, natural fiber jersey against your sensitive skin and with the design made to be worn under the belly...nothing against the midsection at all.The photos of actual customers illustrate the skirt in use at a home birth, hospital birth as well as a home water birth.

A note a happy customer sent said:
"I cannot say enough good things about this skirt from Kobieta! I paired it with a nursing tank and I was so comfortable, MUCH better than a hospital gown. All the nurses and drs were impressed with it too."

After your delivery...hang on to this and use as a cute swimsuit skirt or yoga skirt over leggings! Works fabulously to cover up the bottom and hips and because of my design it adjusts easily to post postpartum sizing!

This item will be individually handmade to customer requested color in the incredibly soft, natural fiber beechtree modal jersey with lycra. The comfy tee like fabric is eco-friendly, high quality, strong, and absorbent. Beechtree fibers create a silky smooth wear for maximum comfort. All edges and seams are fully hemmed and serged.

The 2nd to last picture in the listing shows all the color options. If you are on a mobile device you will have to click the magnifying glass to enlarge the image so you can see the entire picture.


Please see last picture for size & measurement info. Please magnify the image for full details.

You may elect to have customization no matter what size you select. To do this, simply select the size that most matches your own, then leave me notes at checkout with your request. (Example of this may be you fall in S/M waist/hip range but would like a longer or shorter length than standard.)


If you are due within 1-2 weeks and needing expedited shipping, please select one of the Rush Option Processing and Shipping at checkout, other wise...

****Please allow up to 10 business days for completion of this hand made to order item.*****
Because it requires 5-10 business days to complete, you need to plan accordingly on deciding when to order so that I have time to make it, ship it, and it has time to get to you.

USA....I recommend ordering no later than 2.5 weeks weeks prior to due date if possible. Overnight shipping and rush options are available to select at checkout if you are closer than 2 weeks until your due date.

Canada.....I recommend ordering no later than 3-4 weeks prior to due date if possible. Rush Processing and Express 3-5 day shipping available at checkout.

All other International buyers.. Due to such varying delivery times by the postal service for international locations, I HIGHLY recommend ordering no later than 4 weeks prior to due date. This item ships First Class normally but there are Rush options at checkout for expedited shipping and production, but cannot guarantee postal systems around the world.

I am willing to offer the expedited shipping for all buyers. For my part of this, I guarantee it will be shipped in a timely manner which *should* arrive to you before needed. Normally, there is no problem at all and the postal services perform as promised BUT I cannot, however, offer any 'guarantees' on actual arrival date. I do not control the postal services, unfortunately! If you have paid for express service that the post office fails to meet, I will file for a refund for these fees and once it is approved by the post office I will refund you for those extra fees.

**DOULAS, MIDWIVES, OBSTETRICIANS, & BIRTH COACH TEACHERS....Please contact me for free full color informational material to show your patients and clients. I offer prenatal group discounts for orders of 8 or more skirts at a time. Thanks! ******

And just for fun, The Kobieta™ Labor & Delivery Skirt story....

After the birth of my first son, I realized how awful and uncomfortable I felt in a hospital gown. Not only because I did not like being treated like a sick patient, but because it tangled and choked me as I tried to change labor positions!
By my third sons pregnancy in 2006, I knew I needed something different. Being a designer and seamstress, I knew I could do better than what was offered from the hospital.
I designed a skirt to wear based on a National Geographic article I remembered reading regarding birthing rituals and wear from around the world. The idea to use a skirt for birth has been utilized for hundreds of years around the world so why should women now have to be put in sick gowns and left so uncomfortable?!
I sketched out several ideas and tried on a few prototypes before deciding on the best design, which is what is still offered today! It worked wonderfully and word of mouth spread as friends and family... and friends of friends... began asking me for them.
I had been selling my women's and children's clothing online since 2001, so this seemed like a logical product to add to my maternity and nursing line! The custom design has proved to accommodate all sizes, shapes and heights over the years and I feel honored to have been a part of so many beautiful beginnings.
