    I wore light makeup, but I had a CS so didn't have to do much except lie there!

    I spent a lot of time in the shower (well ok 10 minutes for the second but that was the active part of labour for me!) so makeup isn't really an option but also I don't care what I look like after giving birth, I am happy and exhausted and if anyone judged me for looking frumpy then they could go stick it! They would be someone whose opinions don't rate for me at all! Anyone who can't see the exhausted glow of a just given birth mum as a beautiful thing needs their priorities adjusted IMHO!

    Not sure about labour, it's hard work and you have to shower afterwards anyway. But after bub is born and you can be bothered or have time I think it's a nice pick me up.

    I had all these palns, what I would wear .... have my hair in a nice but messy styled updo, mascara and maybe a bit of eyeliner ... ha ha ha but the truth ws for me with my first and second I ended up an unshaven , stark naked, howling bloodshot , spider vein exploding, dribbling, crying mess!! ha ha all my thoughts of labour glamour went out the window with my first contractions, but many women do manage to look great and remember to make themselves look good. I had good intentions but the photos look like I just stuck a fork in an electrical socket !!!

    Haha! This is an interesting question. I think it would be really interesting to poll first time mums with the question and second etc mums to see the difference! Seems I am with all the other mums who have already birthed and said It was the last thing I thought of. I did make sure I straightened my hair and had makeup non before my visitors arrived though. ;-)

    Am I the only one who was made to shower before a c section? I guess I could've put make up on after the shower but they told me to use their weird soap and then limit what I touched/came into contact with after the shower.

    I don't wear make up except for on a night out to dinner with the girls or something so I didn't wear any for my kids births. Each to their own though! If you want to, go for it.

    No make up for me. I like make up sometimes but during birth it would have just sweated off and made me feel uncomfortable. Like dirty on my face. I didn't pack any because at the time I never ever wore make up. I wear it more now but still not as often as some.

    With DS I was induced at 42 weeks, didn't wear makeup. Last thing on my mind.

    With DD I went into labour at 12 noon, after I had put makeup on for the day, and when I realised what was happening I actually washed it all off so that I didn't have to worry about it in hospital.
