I found this article here at the Celebrity Baby Blog (can’t remember how I found that place, lol). I don’t really follow all the baby drama and excitement in the Hollywood world (though it’s hard not to know since they tend to be all over the covers of all the magazines) but found this interesting:
I found this interesting because I remember caring very much about what I wore in the birthing room before my baby came into this world five months ago and I looked everywhere for something I could wear before and after. I had no clue what was coming or what I would feel but I was determined not to wear one of those “yucky hospital gowns” (say that with a sneer) and feel like “a patient”. lol Turns out, by the time I was in labor I didn’t care what I was wearing and did end up wearing one of those hospital gowns! And I couldn’t have cared less, lol. I just wanted some pain medication.
I can tell you one thing, the girl in that picture does NOT look like she’s in labor. *grumble* I wish I had looked that good, though. I think I would like to have something like this IF I ever have another child. I have very mixed feelings about that decision!
Let me go check the price…
Okay, it’s $98. Yikes.
And THIS is what it says (no joke!) at the site, Daniela Corte:
Dar-A-Luz Maternity Gown
Cold room, screaming, bad lighting, and strange people looking at you, the hospital maternity room does not give you that warm fuzzy feeling of, say your yoga studio or the dressing room of your favorite boutique. The Dar-A-Luz maternity dress, from the Spanish phrase “To Give Birth”, adds a level of comfort. Made up of 100% organic cotton it is a far cry from the stiff hospital gown and it comes in Violet and Steel Blue. You’re a fashionista in every other aspect of your life, why not when you are bringing new life into the world too?
The Dar-A-Luz dress isn’t just great for yourself, but makes the ultimate baby shower gift for those new preggers in your life! And comes with a draw-string Daniela Corte bag so it really is the perfect gift. This should be taken as an inside tip soon-to-be dads.
First of all, no dress, no matter how lovely or expensive, could give you comfort when you’re in LABOR.
Second of all, what’s with all the terror-inspiring birth-room phrases? It wasn’t that bad in the hospital I was at. Yes, there were a million strangers, but I didn’t care – I just wanted that baby out of me. They make it sound like they strap you to a table without any pain medication and… dimmed lights, lol. Someone has watched too many horror movies. haha
I think they’re trying to scare the dads into spending money so their wives won’t be so scared.
What are your thoughts on delivery-wear?
