Welcome Addison!

Just as Brittani shared with you three months ago, I will share my labor story. First of all, I have to say, I have heightened respect for my sister Brittani and her natural childbirth in April. I was ready for an IV and pain medication as soon as I walked through those hospital doors. Shortly thereafter, I had an epidural as well. As many of you know, labor can be quite unpredictable. After several heart-rate scares and a slow-moving labor, I went in for a C-Section. This was not what I had anticipated, but my little girl needed to get out and the wonderful doctors (and my midwife) made the best decisions for her health.

Because of the C-Section, I spent a number of days in the hospital. I was a bit nervous to try out the gowns, worried that perhaps my product would in some way not measure up to my very high expectations. But I was pleasantly reassured as I found the gowns to be very functional and fabulous. Immediately following my C-Section I changed into the first of my three gowns. I received compliments to no end, coupled with questions from physicians, nurses, lab workers and other patients. I even managed to throw in a few shameless plugs for my LaborLooks line ;) I have to say, I received the most compliments on the Devyn line of gowns. They are funky, retro patterns with bold black and red colors.

What an amazing experience!
