Tonight we went to our first Bradley class. I'm very excited to finally start classes! Ill be 37 weeks at the end so it's kind Of my "last phase" for preparing for my first birthing experience.
I'm wondering if any if you have advice for getting DH to see and fully believe in the benefits of med free birth.
My DH is definitely not AGAINST my wishes, but he has a very analytical mindset and tends to lean toward traditional medical approaches in most aspects, not just birthing. In his words "I don't necessarily want you to have meds, but I don't want to see you in pain. If I know meds can relieve that pain they naturally make sense to me."
Please understand he is actively going to Bradley classes with me and preparing to coach and respect my wishes to go med free. I guess I'm asking if anyone has advise on helping him see natural birth as a better option for mom and baby as an overall experience, especially postpartum vs him seeing having meds and following traditional medical routines as a better "crisis management" option for just the labor and delivery.
