Being in labor makes you HOT!  I didn’t strip but I can completely understand why some women do!

I think I just saw what you are talking about. It was a water birth so eh… naked or not.. I don’t care. I’ve heard that for some it gets so hot and restrictive they just tear their gown/clothes off…. but I think it’s a personal preference kind of thing.

I was more shocked that she gave birth naked with many (especially male) family/friends around. I mean, she’s butt naked and there were like 15 people crowding through the door looking!

@KLP2010: Wow that is a bit freaky to me.  I don’t understand having a ton of people in the delivery room.  I won’t even have my dad in the room for sure.

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: Ya, from the 2 min. I saw flipping around I heard that she had 2 miscarriages so it was this huge miraculous moment everyone was overjoyed at… which I get… but uh…. the miracle will still be here once I’m clothed ๐Ÿ™‚ I totally plan on Darling Husband only whenever that day comes…. MAYBE my Boyfriend or Best Friend who works in L&D… but that’s a huge maybe at this point ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m totally indifferent about naked births. The mom is going through so much already, if she needs to be stark ass naked to feel more comfortable, then more power to her. I don’t think I’d be comfortable being naked, but I’ve never been in that situation, so I really can’t say.

As far as having lots of people in the delivery room- that totally freaks me out. I know it’s natural and all, but ew, I don’t want my dad, brothers, neighbors, cousins, whomever seeing my vagina. Hell no.

I’m not into the everyone watching delivery, I don’t even want my husband down there. 

But some people are a lot more comfortable with it. I know my one friend had her family from overseas and was all modest about breastfeeding in front of her father but after awhile in a small apartment with a hungry newborn she just said screw it, I’m not finding a coverup or moving everytime baby wants to eat.  She said her father would move then but there wasn’t really much place to go so he finally said screw it too and everyone lived happily ever after even with the occassional naked boob.

I think it depends on your “style” and what you’re personally comfortable with.

Some people (ME) only want their husband and perhaps mother there and would be covered as much as possible. While other people (obviously this lady) want extended family and friends there for the delivery and would do it stark naked on a pedestal.

Although I can understand it if your having a water birth (obviously you’d be naked) or if you’d been in labor for forever and were super hot and sweaty. I just couldn’t handle tons of onlookers.

I’ll probably be the crazy one who will be naked in front of everyone.  But then again, I’m not pregnant so I can’t decide that beforehand.  I just know how I am.  If I had enough guts, I’d probably be a nudist.  Hahaha.  

I don’t think I’ll want an audience in the DR with me as I’m giving birth.  It’ll be a special time between for both me and J.  Plus I need to focus on me and the baby so I want little distraction as much as possible.

I caught up on One Born Every Minute episodes.  Too funny.

Hell no. I’m aware that I might get hot or uncomfortable but that’s what childbirth is and that’s what ice chips are for ๐Ÿ™‚ I think we’re actually thinking of delivering via the squatting position, gravity gives you the most help in that situation, and no one can see my lady parts! Win-Win!

Oh I can’t imagine this at all. 

I don’t mind my husband seeing my naked but thats only like in the shower or walking around.

I am really hoping I can stay covered up and all visitors can wait outside!
