Hi. I'm Karrina, and I'm planning a natural birth. i'm 32 weeks along with my 2nd daughter. I'm a single mom too. I'm hoping that I can get some good advice on natural births from other parents on here.
have a nice weekend

Yes, I am taking classes. I've also enrolled my daughter in classes where they try to prepare the kids for their new sibling and try to make them excited so they wont be jealous.

That's awesome. How old is you daughter? Are your classes the hospital classes, or something more natural friendly, bc their's are informative, but can put some doubt in your mind when trying for natural. If you are doing the hosp one's, you might look into supplementing w something else... or getting a doula, esp since you are a single mom and their support might really help you reach your goal.

If you look for one who's still in training it's way cheaper and still a great source of support. They have to assist so many deliveries to be certified so they're trained but don't have quite as much experience. They cut the rate way back:)
