Congratulations! In a span of less than a year you will conceive, grow and birth a tiny human! I know I don't have to tell you but this will literally change every aspect of your life and while that may incite excitement in most women it can also spark a little bit of fear. Yes, you do have a mothering instinct and yes women have been giving birth for years but its always a little easier when we've educated ourselves on the process.
So what about the big day you say? I promise you if you leave it up to chance you will have the birth your medical staff think you should have, which while well intentioned may not look or feel how you thought. And while mommy blogs, Reddit posts and internet articles seem like a good idea how do you know what is fact and what is opinion?
You want to feel confident and heard and know you are safe and supported. You know you're going to have pain but you want to know how to best manage it. Does this sound like you?
That's excellent because more times than I can count I've seen moms show up NOT in labor then either be sent home or induced and end up having a slew of interventions they didn't want solely because they weren't prepared.
