first baby on the way!!
nreyn3 posted:
Hi, I'm going to be having a little girl around February 23 and would really like to try to have, at the least, a non-epidural/spinal tap birth. Not because I think they harm the baby, but because I would like to have the full experience of childbirth. Everyone seems to think I'm crazy and won't be able to do it, which actually make me want to succeed even more! This might be the only child I have, and I think the natural birthing process, as painful as it may be, would be an incredible bonding experience for little Lilliana and me. My husband is supportive up to a point, he won't admit it, but I think he honestly believes I will fold at the first real contraction. I have signed up for a bithing class, but want to see about taking a few online classes, or at least find a few videos for pain management. Does anyone know of any they would recomend? Thanks for any input!
