There are plenty of indignities that come with childbirth — from the parade of people who come to check on you to the bodily functions that you'd prefer not to perform while in public. For those that consider peek-a-boo hospital gowns to be a humiliating part of the process, designer Daniela Corte created the Dar-A-Luz maternity gown ($98) that gets mama-to-be from contractions to the delivery room.

Made of 100 percent organic cotton the dress does feature the all-important rear ties of a traditional hospital gown, but is more discreet, softer and fashionable. Given the mess that typically accompanies childbirth, would you pay this price to look nice during labor?
