BABY DIARIES - BIRTH PLAN
In this episode of my baby diaries, I decide on my birth plan and what drugs I'm going to use. All of them...just kidding, I actually like the sound of a water birth, but I'm just going to play it by ear and not put pressure on myself to do anything. I'm sure that when I'm in the room, I'll want something totally different.
There are so many different methods and options for giving birth, natural, water, hypnobirthing, c-section (elective and non-elective), forceps, ventouse and numerous options of pain relief, its almost as overwhelming as the thought of giving birth itself. Having popped along to my local NCT and Antenatal classes, and done my own research, I have been toing and froing between water and hypnobirthing. I know for sure, I will use the breathing techniques in hypnobirthing and have been watching YouTube videos rather than going to a class.
I honestly can't believe that in 6 weeks time, I could be giving birth and it will no longer be just Andy and I. The most important thing for me is to have a safe, complication free birth, if that happens, I will be over the moon.
