This one is so fun, it cracks me up every time. This double-sided banner is absolutely perfection to hang in the birthing room. One side says "Damn it feels good to be a gangsta", and flip it over to read "Damn it feels good to get an epidural". If you're feeling like you want to do this whole natural childbirth thing (which I highly recommend), hang the gangsta side facing out loud and proud! If you decide the contractions completely blow and you have a date with the anesthesiologist, flip it around to the epidural side (because that feels really good too). This one is possibly the most unique baby shower gift - it's that thing the expectant mama had no idea she needs until she sees it!
A little personal backstory: I went into my first childbirth experience with a birth plan that included a water birth and completely un-medicated labor. But they induced me and the pitocin contractions were a bit too much for this gangsta to handle so I begged for (and thoroughly enjoyed) the epidural. Fast forward to my second son, when I was induced for a second time: I asked to meet with the anesthesiologist first thing and told her sign me up for the epidural. There was no way I was going to endure that pain again! But I was also a bit more prepared and brought some very powerful birth affirmations that I was able to focus on during the tougher moments. A strange thing happened: I believed I could, and I did!
What's my point? You can never really plan for everything, and a birth plan is more of a rough idea of possibilities, so it's good to leave your options open. This sign accounts for a wide range of possibilities, so you'll be all set!
