I know I felt dirty enough from the "land" birth

Did you shower right away after the water birth?

I didn't think it was gross at all. In fact, all the vernix floating in hot water made my skin feel incredibly smooth for a week afterwards! I like holding a baby that's all clean instead of gooey after the birth too.

I did take a shower after i got out of the tub before snuggling up in bed.
