Labour & birth

We've just seen a quote Kim Kardashian has given to Vogue magazine, saying she 'gave birth in full make-up'.
And that reminded us of the story we wrote recently about the New York make-up artist (pictured, below), who put on her make-up between labour contractions.
Of course, we're not at all surprised that make-up mattered a lot to both these women while they was in labour (KK is the Queen of the Contouring Stick, after all!), but it has made us wonder what you lovely lot think you'll be doing make-up-wise when you give birth.
So we're asking you now!
Is it important to you that you have make-up on while you're in the delivery room?
Or does it not matter to you at all?
We love to hear what you think – and why.
Please share your thoughts with us by adding a post to this thread. Thanks so much!

Having nails painted is a big no as the hospital staff will be checking nails for signs of vitals.
Face some people like made up for the post birth photos but labour can make you sweat & all of that sweat can affect your make up, personally I would wait until the 'freshen up' after the birth before applying
