That would he the best option!

I typically wear glasses on a daily basis, just cause I've gotten tired of the hassle of contacts. But I can see how glasses could drive me crazy during labor. I want to make sure I see that baby when it pops out, especially since the gender is a surprise!

I wore my contacts, but brought my glasses. Honestly, you most likely will have time to change between the two if you prefer!

I have the night and day lenses too. Their is no way I'd wear glasses while in labor, I can't even stand to wear them for two seconds while watching tv.

Re: labor in contacts vs. glasses

I was induced with dd and I took out my contacts and wore my glasses at night because I cannot stand to sleep in contacts! Then the doctor placed the foley bulb in my cervix early the next morning before I had time to put in contacts or anything. The pain became so intense so quickly that I never got to put my contacts back in. So I was in my glasses. It honestly don't remember even noticin because I was too busy trying to survive! Haha

I can hardly see anything either. Both my labors started at night when I didn't have my contacts in, and with my lens solution, I have to wait six hours after putting them in solution to wear them again. By the time I hit the six hour mark, I was deep into labor and no way thinking about my lenses lol. Laboring in glasses didn't bother me even though I don't normally wear them and don't prefer them. Even at my homebirth waterbirth, they were fine. The did get splashed and spotted, but I wasn't paying attention and wasn't bothered by that. Only after my son was born, did I realize I could hardly see anything with all the smudges lol.

I wore my contacts (even put them in for DD #1 when my water broke at 4am waking me up). Seriously can't wait for LASIK!

I never understood why hospitals won't let you wear lenses..I wore my contacts for both of my home births and didn't have any issues.
