Our Cap Sleeve Transition Gown was recently reviewed on the Ruby Stilettos Blog by Christina Maki. Christina writes about all things from breastfeeding, baby wearing, and bed sharing to natural births, baby products and the like.
In her review, she mentions the importance of choice in creating a positive birthing experience. Having control of even the smallest aspect of your labor can have an impact! See what she says below:
"One of the most important things in creating a positive birth experience is having choices. It may seem like a little thing to bring your own delivery...
Ever feel rushed? Like every day? Taking our time, doing it our way --that's how we want to live but it's not always how we actually live. Then we get to birth and everyone's staring at us, looking at our privates, scrutinizing us with clocks, rates and their own busy schedules. Everyone wants the baby now. Well, they can wait. In fact, they need to wait.
All the small decisions, all the pushes and pulls to care for your baby according to other people's expectations or to "norms" begin to pile up and by the time delivery comes you're half sure you know what you're doing and half sure you should have read just one more book or attended just one more class or maybe...you don't know what to think! Does any woman ever feel 100% ready for this birth, not your sister's or your mother's, not your first child's or maybe your third's but this birth, this unique moment that is happening now.
