Wearing a pad during labour??
I've been getting a lot of discharge during my pregnancy, and often see birth videos where women wear pads during labour- is this because you get a lot of stuff coming out during labour? I would prefer to be naked during labour, but should I wear a pad in my undies during labour because of this?

Congratulations on your pregnancy and welcome to the Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond forum.
Many women prefer to be naked during labour; where they are unrestricted by clothes and have full freedom to move around easily. Have you thought much about the type of birth you would like? You may find the birth choices section of our website helpful.
Sometimes women wear a pad when there waters are slowly leaking out (you should tell your midwife or doctor if your waters break). But generally there is not much discharge until the second and third stage of labour.
Please do post back with any further questions you may have about pregnancy or birth.
