Whether you just learned that you are pregnant, or you are staring down the clock in your last trimester, you have likely spent some time contemplating the uncertainties surrounding your upcoming childbirth experience. Will you need to (or want to be) induced? Will the baby be facing the correct direction? Will there be complications? Will you need (or want) a C-section?
No one, not even the most experienced labor and delivery doctor or nurse, can give you a definite description of how your childbirth experience will unfold. Nevertheless, the best way to ensure the most optimal birth experience possible is to prepare your body, your mind, and your relationships for the birth event and the journey of parenthood beyond. Read as much as you can, talk to your friends and your family members and take classes together.
Your baby will thank you for the time you spend now investing in your family future together!
