Labor and delivery has been on my mind lately because my incredibly sweet and beautiful sister-in-law is due on June 8. I helped her write her birth plan a few days ago and all of the memories came flooding back. The peaking contractions, the whispering, the need for reassurance ("Are you sure I can do this?," "I don't know if I can do this..."), the pushing...and then...the wonder, the magic, the power of that breathless moment. The triumph. And there she was - this precious beautiful baby with rosebud lips and a button nose. She was the picture of perfection and I was the happiest mama on the hall (at least I thought I was). I count that as one of the best days of my life.
This weekend is all about expectant moms - tips, products, and information (and giveaways, of course!) to help you during labor, delivery, and recovery.
If you are past this stage, please feel free to stick around to reminisce or to try to win products to give as gifts for friends. I'd love for you to share your thoughts as experienced mommies.
