Is she supposed to give birth before your wedding or after? Are you thinking pillows for the comfort of a super pregnant lady or a new mom?

as a super pregnant lady, it depends on every woman. My son came 9 days late and I was dancing away at a christmas party the day before he came. I would have had no problem going to a wedding and no special measures necessary.

however as a new mom, it’s another story. I had a c-section and was in pain and exhausted. Also, getting used to life with a baby was quite a shock. There is no way I would have been able to attend a wedding in the first 3 weeks. Maybe the ceremony only.. but even then I’m not sure if that would have worked.

sorry I got no better advice for you! It’s really nice though that you are thinking of her and how to make her comfortable. It’s also nice of her to try and go. Realistically though, you’ll probably have to wait until last minute to find out if she makes it or not.

If she’s still super-pregnant, I would suggest a lumbar pillow. I can still sit for a while as long as I have a pillow behind my lower back.

Its sweet of you to think of her but honestly she would not want you putting yourself out, especially on her wedding day, just for for her.

My flower girl’s mom was due on my wedding date.  I told her to stay at the hotel instead of coming to the ceremony since it was so hot out.  Most woman have that burst of energy right before birth.  She was fine!  Danced all night!  And gave birthday to a gorgeous baby boy the next day. 🙂

I think it’s nice that you want to do something for her but you will be so busy with wedding day things that trying to find her to give her a pillow will be the last thing on your mind.  My sister-in-law did the same thing as baletrina’s friend.  Danced all night and had the baby the next day.
