I think its really neat because speaking from experience, your birth experience is incredibly important and you will remember it until you die. If you have a good experience it can be transforming and even healing, but if you have a bad experience it can haunt you your whole life. As someone who wanted one, almost got one and then didnt, here are just a few tips if you are planning on it
- research. There are so many good books out there. ina may has a bunch, there is husband coached childbirth (doesnt have to be a husband but focuses on team work with a helper and its great), hypnobirthing (really its basically meditation and i recommend this based on the fact that its super helpful for other things not just childbirth.), natural hospital birth which is great if you are planning one. All of these books and more will help educate you and make you feel empowered and inspired.
- take a class. my hospital offered birthing classes and half of it was for natural births and the classes were free with state assistance (f you are on that) they also went through and explained every single possibility, procedure, medication, things like epidurals and vacuums.. all to help you be educated. They also teach your support person about techniques to keep you calm and relatively pain free which is great. In fact its more important for your support person to take the class.
- have support. Just pick one person. It can be your spouse, a sibling you trust, a parent, a good friend, a doula.. just someone you can trust and is assertive. Think of them as your maid of honor of labor. They need to know everything about what you want in a birth and your plans and whats going on. They need to agree and they need to be able to speak for you.
- dont let doctors step all over you. You have a right to a natural birth and you have a right to choose what happens to you. You can refuse any procedures or medications and you can and should always ask what is being done when they do stuff. If you dont know whats in an IV or what its for, you ask! Its ok if youre annoying this is YOUR birth. Hospital staff is often tired and busy and want you in and out. They will use belittling and bullying and sometimes stretching the truth to get you to do things the way that makes things easiest on them.
- That is why having a strong support person who is well versed on what you want is important. You will be in labor and during contractions your focus will be elsewhere cause lets face it you are doing much more important things than dealing with people and staff. And as strong and assertive as you may be, you might just not be up to the task and you will probably be very tired after being in labor for a long time or lack of sleep or whatever. So this part is super important
- choose a good hospital. lots of hospitals are supportive of natural birth, ask and take a tour!
- but most importantly just be informed!
