Women Are Putting on Makeup Before They Give Birth – but Not Everyone Is on Board



I ended up being induced with both of my boys (for different medical reasons), so I knew when I got up that morning (at the butt crack of dawn) that I would be, at some point, the focus of pictures that would be around for the rest of my life.

So, yes, I totally did my makeup and made sure my hair was, at least, clean.

I’m not alone, with a good percentage of women getting some kind of beauty treatments leading up to their due dates – massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, spray tans, blowouts, etc – and a little pampering during those final days goes a long way.

That said, these women are definitely taking it to the next level – full makeup, lighting, the works.

I’m not sure that’s really necessary, but then again, anything that makes you feel ready and beautiful and set to tackle motherhood is okay, I suppose.

You do you, I’ll do me, etc.

I’ll be more impressed if you find a way to do your makeup and hair in the weeks after the baby is born, to be honest.
