- Labor Time or Potty Time

You will have to beg the nurse to take you to bathroom but you will not be allowed to go. Relax, this happens with every pregnant lady.
- You may have to wear “mommy diaper”
We all know that once you have delivered the baby, you experience continuous bleeding for around a month or even more so that all the waste of your body is discharged. For that you might have to wear a mommy diaper which is maxi pad or sometimes a real diaper that comes with ice packed into your underwear to give you some relief from post birth discomfort.
