Hello all =)
This is my first time here, I'm 20 weeks and really hoping for a completely natural childbirth. I've decided I want to go natural because I am notoriously sensitive and have had extreme reactions to all kinds of different medications, and while everyone tells me "no one" has a bad reaction to epidurals, I don't want to be that one exception, and be incoherent or worse when I get to hold my baby for the first time.
I'm registering for all of my classes, and am wondering if you ladies think it's necessary or better to try to follow a method, like the Bradley method, or to just go for it. My hospital/medical group doesn't offer a natural childbirth class, but they do have an "active labor" class.
I am open to all suggestions, can you let me know if you used a certain method or took a certain class, and if that worked for you? Thanks so much!
