I thought this might fit in the birth experiences/preparing for birth thread, but I liked reading your previous birth experiences so much I didn't want to derail it with logistical things like this.
So, my city has a fabulous midwifery group that practices at a hospital birth center. They have the respect of the obs and quite a bit of autonomy. They new center also has tubs! The hospital is cool with water births.
Logistically I'm thinking since
-I want to labor without an epidural = tubs and shower heads will be my friend.
-I'm not sure I'd be comfortable going completely naked
-Wet clothes are probably not great to labor in
-Changing clothes laboring might be tough? or may not?
-Access to vaginal area is need. Are pants annoying to get on and off in labor? Wear something a skirt?
What to do?
-labor in a bikini top in shower and switch to regular shirt when not in the shower
-what they heck do you wear to cover your tush?
I'd love to hear what you ladies wore, what you liked, or would've done differently.
