Over the past 10 years I have been asked about everything from herbal baths to birth pools so I thought I would put together a list of some of the products you may have seen and wondered about.  I added a few of my favorite books also, including one for children that I bought for my own family when I was expecting my third child.  I will add to this list as I find appropriate links.

 

Pretty Pushers 100% Cotton Disposable Labor & Delivery Gown

The Pretty Pushers gown is an easy, inexpensive alternative to the standard hospital gown. And the best aspects of these delivery gowns are the openings in all the right places. Many modern labors involve epidurals, monitors, and other IV cords. Women are left disappointed by the traditional labor gowns which allow for none of the above! The Pretty Pushers gown was designed with a halter neck and low-cut back for epidural access. Additionally, there is an opening (with tie closure) at the front of the gown for both the fetal monitor and the mother’s monitor, if needed. Pretty Pushers utilizes as much recycled and recyclable material as possible in their packaging and shipping components. Of course as the company grows, so will their use of modern technology and ideas to lessen even more their impact on the environment. This company holds a strong social commitment, too…All products are 100% Made in America.

Bintiva Peanut Ball, Including a Free Foot Pump, for Labor, Birthing, Physical Therapy, Fitness, and Exercise

This peanut ball is crafted from professional grade materials, and is similar to a standard stability ball. The difference being, that, peanut balls only move back and forth in one direction, versus the stability ball that is multidirectional. This provides more stability and control, and makes it ideal for therapy and rehabilitation use with children or seniors. The unique shape is also favored by midwives, and doulas, for use as a birthing ball.
