*ENDED* Childbirth Giveaway - Binsi Birthing Wear


When my water broke with my youngest, we were living about an hour away from the hospital. We grabbed our bags, dropped the oldest off at my mother-in-laws, and headed on our way. Of course, the first thing they had me do once I was checked in was disrobe and put on the hospital gown. YUCK! My labor never did start on it's own, and so, for 24 hours, I walked the halls of the labor and delivery ward, took the elevator up to the nursery for more walking, and then walked some more in my room. The whole time I was in that ghastly, ugly, completely uncomfortable hospital gown.

If only I had known about Binsi birthing wear at the time! Binsi makes skirts, "Thankinis", and Go-Go tops all designed to be worn while in the throws of labor. The most important article of clothing in this trio, in my opinion, is the Binsi skirt. This is no ordinary skirt, as it's made so that doctors and midwives can have easy access to every part of you. There are legs slits that go high enough that raising your legs for pushing is no big deal, but the flaps overlap, so while you're walking halls, urging labor to come, you are still modest. You can get either snap or velcro closures. I prefered the snaps, just because I hate aligning velcro. HA! There is an adjustable waist, it fits under your belly, and the best part? It's just CUTE! There are even 8 prayer/blessing beads that come with every skirt. You can attach these to the ribbon at your waist with your spouse or friends, and then feel the strength and support radiate all through your birthing experience. I would recommend clearing using the Binsi skirt with your doctor before purchasing, but there shouldn't be an issue!

The other cool items are their tops. There is the Thankini, which is a modified spaghetti strap shirt. It also has snaps that alow the shirt to come apart in various places, so the medical staff can have quick access to every part of you necessary. Then there is the Go-Go top. Made of 90% breathable cotton, this is basically a roomier sports bra. It has the same type of access as the Thankini, with less coverage. Both of these tops allow for super easy post-birthing breastfeeding. I prefer the Thankini for a hospital birth, just because, I wouldn't want the doctors and nurses passing out from my stretch marks. But, if I had one of those perfect pregnant bellies, I'd be working the Go-Go fo sho! (<--- I'm gangsta, didn't you know?) Binsi also has a robe and birth wish bracelets to add to your labor ensemble. I really love the idea of this. Being comfortable and able to move freely with your labor, while at the same time keeping your body accessible to the medical staff. I think the Binsi line would actually make it easier to undress you in the event of an emergency. Rather than untying, unwrapping, and then working, all of these articles just snap or velcro off in one swift movement. It doesn't get any easier! I'm so exciting to birth with Binsi next time! The awesome news is coming, can't you feel it? A lucky mama (or daddy, if he's so inclined) is going to get the chance to win an entire birthing outfit from Binsi! This will include the skirt and top of your choice!

How To Enter: Go to Binsi's website and tell me which top and skirt set you would choose (include color/patterns as well). INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS.
