Review - Thrifty Minnesota Mama

Posted by Kim:

As written by Sarah on the Thrifty Minnesota Mama blog

As a Registered Nurse formerly working in labor and delivery I know the traditional hospital gown isn't exactly conducive to comfort and style. Enter the Binsi Labor and Birth apparel. Binsi has set out to create hospital equipment friendly apparel that you can wear during your labor and delivery. It is also stylish and comfortable allowing you to wear it as maternity wear before your delivery as well.

They offer a variety of materials from dressy to sporty. I tried the PrimaMama Sport skirt and found it to be very comfortable material that you could where anywhere.

The hospital gown can tend to make people feel more like they are ill and less like they are there to bring life into the world. The Binsi apparel is meant to make you feel beautiful and comfortable during your birth experience. No more bare buns to cover while you walk the halls in labor. Binsi also accomodates all labor positions. From a labor nurse's point of view it is also very medical staff friendly, with snaps on the sides of both the skirt and top making them completely accessible to medical equipment. You can even wear them if you get an epidural!

I also like that you can wear them throughout your pregnancy as well as during your labor and birth. They are also ideal to wear to prenatal appointments.

The Thankini also offers easy access for nursing your baby following delivery. So not only can you nurse immediately and easily, you can also wear it post-baby for easy access nursing.
