|BG Birthing Gown Made in the USA|
If you remember how your contractions felt, you know what sheer pain feels like. I decided that I wanted to give birth naturally. Given technology, why would anyone choose to labor without pain medication? Truthfully, the thought of a needle going into my back that close to my spine makes me nervous.
Plan B. I had to come up with a way to give birth using nothing but my mind. Yes, the same brain that is able to focus on any one topic for no more than, sometimes, a few minutes at a time. Of the options and techniques available to me, the best one was my husband.

Each time I went into labor, those nights of practicing imagery and listening to music paid off. My husband held my hand and reminded me of my happy place, of wonderful moments that we have shared. Those 60-second increments were such intimate minutes that I look back on them fondly, instead of painfully. He led me where I needed to be. I have not forgotten the incredible pain. I just appreciate how calm he remained while his wife labored in such pain.
I can say that it is possible to labor using the technique of mind over matter. My labors lasted a combined six hours. Divided by two, that's not a very long time to labor. If I ever get the opportunity to do it again, I would love to labor in the jetted tub that the birthing center had. What I would include in the bag that I pack is a birthing gown to wear when I get out of the tub. I was not prepared for that. My husband, bless his heart, scrambled to find something for me.
I found some birthing gowns that are made in the USA and decided to share them here with you. If you are blessed enough to be expecting, I hope one of these gowns enhances your experience.
Please stop by and share your stories. I would love to read them.
