I have been coming to the natural board for a while now, but I don't think I have ever written anything! I decided I wanted a med-free birth in my first trimester, and had a bit of a hard time convincing DH. He slowly came around, and this last weekend we went to our Childbirth Classes, and he is now completely on board with me having a natural birth!
It felt great to hear him say "I know you can do it" What a difference it makes to be educated! Also, the one thing I never knew, and I am STILL amazed at is the "Breast Crawl" This is an absolute phenomenon to me, and I am using this as my motivation to stick with med-free! The study shows it was WAY more successful with natural births as apposed to births that used interventions.
I just wanted to come in and say hello, as I come here often to read questions, and birth stories! I am REALLY starting to get pumped for my natural birth, and I'm so happy that Hubby is with me! (not so happy with all the stupid comments I get from family though!) BUT those comments are also my motivation- I want to prove them wrong!
