No, really. First of all, you clearly won’t need them for delivery. And you won’t need them afterward either. Here’s a little secret: They give you these weird disposable, stretchy granny panties, and you’ll actually want to use them. Why would someone want such a thing you might ask? Well, that’s the other bit of news nobody mentions: There will be blood—lots and lots of blood. Like diaper-sized pad amounts. So you’ll happily don the giant stretchy underpants and save yourself some serious laundry. Oh, and their stretchiness means they can accommodate the frozen diapers that the nurses give you for your sore nether regions. That’s right, after giving birth, you will walk around with giant panties full of enormous pads and frozen diapers. The frozen diapers are a godsend, and the panties are oddly comfortable, so much so that I have friends who smuggled home a few extra pairs!
