Its “D Day.” Deliver Day, that is. When you are up 25-50 pounds, a gal needs a little glamour. Instead of sporting the grungy, gaping-at-the-tush hospital gown that has been soiled by years of birth “matter”, slip into something more luxe; a soft, thoughtfully designed gown created specifically for a comfortable and stylish labor. It’s a simple truth: when you look good, you feel good. Even in the face of hideously painful contractions.
There are a lot of things that I love about designer hospital gowns:
• They are new
• They are chic and look fabulous in pictures.
• They have openings to accommodate an epidural, fetal monitor and IV
• They have mini pockets for lip gloss and a cell phone (so one can social media-cize the birth process with ease)
• They are another way to make your “birth-day” special.
Expensive? A bit. But, it is the small indulgences that make an about-to-deliver mom feel great.
