Ahh I like that someone mentioned Birthing within! I before I became pregnant, was looking into going to school to be a Childbirth Educator, and all the other fun classes, and Birthin Within, is one of the programs I was looking into! :) My only concern, was not having gone through the birth process, I was afraid no one would want to learn from me! LOL. But now that seems not to be a problem!
EDD JULY 13th
So excited to meet our little Blessing Baby Ruth Anne!

I am due in about 6 weeks and am planning to deliver naturally. I am both excited and nervous about it, hearing scary stories, but also amazing ones. I am currently reading "Birthing from Within," which has helped me feel more confident in my decision to birth naturally. If anyone is nervous they should check out that book.

Yikes! What books were you reading? If Ina May didn't leave you with the impression that birth was all about euphoria and a feeling of connectedness with the world at large, then I don't know who possibly could. And if you weren't reading Ina May, then you have my sympathies...I give her books to all of my pregnant girlfriends, knowing how influential & inspiring they can be. Sally :-)

After I had my water birth and the euphoria of that hormonal rush came on I sort of wondered why I even bothered reading so much during my pregnancy. None of the books even remotely mentioned how great I would feel and converseley suggested that I might be blue or even feeling homocidal! Your body may know instinctualy what to do but knowing is always better than not knowing. People who have not had natural births always seem to have something to say about it. I guess you never know but I'm not so patient I guess as some who are open to anything someone has to say. I'm tierd of hearing people, women mainly perpetuating these non-truths by suggesting that knowledge is not necessary or real. I'm tierd of people downplaying the importance of this to the mother-child connection or using medical technology to lie about science. Western Medicine does not teach the truth about womens' health. The truth is here though and it is supported by scientific knowledge. You may have to ask your midwife to get the full story on what your bodies natural pain relievers do for you. It is better to know than not to know.
