Birthing plan

DD & I went over her birthing plan, it's fairly short and straightforward, I think I've got it memorised.
One thing the midwives are pushing hard is skin to skin contact immediately after birth, she asked if I'd be happy to do this for one twin if she couldn't do it, I agreed. 
Because of this I needed something to wear for her delivery, I can't wear skirts or trousers so I can't wear a top to pop the baby under. I went to the local CS & found the ideal dress. It's the size of a 4 man tent, it buttons down the front and is a delicate shade of baby poo, so once it's served its purpose I can return it to the shop (after washing it) or throw it away.

What a lovely bonding moment that would be for you. The dress sounds ideal for the job but not very appealing lol.

From Margie in Toronto - You do make me laugh Hester - but as unappealing as that dress sounds, I'm sure it will be perfect for the job! :-)

You made me laugh so much with your description of your "birthing dress". What an honour to be asked to do this wonderful bonding with your grandchild. Catriona

Apparently, it is very important for the onset of immunity. Well done, I can't think of something as wonderful as you have offered to do. Hugs xxxx
