New Mother's Baby Shower Gift by Get Janes
The Gift that Puts You in the Driver’s Seat at the Doctor's Office
Uncertainty is a certainty for cancer patients, survivors or those with a chronic health condition that requires frequent doctor visits. Give your loved one Janes™ and restore her sense of control over this small but important aspect of their journey.
It’s time your loved one tosses that thin, papery gown that leaves her feeling cold, struggling to tie it shut in the back or keep it from drooping in front. She deserves better.
With the input of nurses, patients, doctors and hospital administrators, we created Janes™: A full-coverage, wrap-front (kimono-style) gown made of durable waffle weave knit that stands up to repeated washings. It comes in two sizes, and with its own cinch bag for storage.
Get comfortable. Get confident. Get Janes™.
“The past 2 years, I’ve been to numerous doctors and lab centers, having more than my share of mammograms, ultrasounds, guided biopsies, MRI’s, surgeries, and treatments......all fun stuff. I am happy to no longer be a pin cushion and a patient!
During that time I found myself on tissue paper-covered waiting tables, cold slabs, and sitting in waiting rooms with scores of other scared women.... each of us wearing ill-fitting hospital gowns, trying to keep our privates private. There we sat, all in fetal-like positions, trying to hold on to what little dignity we had. You know that pose, right? The one where your legs are crossed and your arms are pulling at the inside ties to help cover your nether regions? Something always falls out, no matter how hard you try. It’s so humiliating!
Through Social Media I got introduced to Janes (ps love the name).
Do you have a friend or family member who is going a tough illness, requiring multiple tests or treatments? Do you think that flowers are a great idea? Well, they do brighten one’s day, however they DIE! For the cost of a floral arrangement you can GetJanes and give them something they can wear with dignity at each appointment. And ps. they also make a great everyday robe too. Mine hangs on my bathroom door hook so I have something light to wear when I get out of the shower.
I can’t WAIT to go to my follow up appointments with my oncologist and my breast surgeon over the next few months. I plan on bringing my Jane with me. No more paper Johnnies for this girl. When I said I would be bringing back my power in 2015 that includes not being that scared, cowering girl sitting on a cold slab, with my side boobs hanging out.”
