Hey mamas. I'm 31 weeks with my second child, and starting to get nervous about how things are going to play out with the birth, especially in regards to my 3 year old. With her, my labor was fast and furious (from water breaking to getting admitted and checked at the hospital was 90 minutes, and I was already dilated to 8cm). As second labors tend to go faster, I think my daughter will witness most (if not all) of my labor, simply due to family members not being able to get to the hospital quickly enough. I plan to explain contractions and birth to her as best as I can, explain that I may be in pain during contractions, and role play the scenario a bit with her. Anything else you ladies can recommend? Are A Baby Story episodes too intense for a 3 year old to watch? It's been a long time since I've seen that show lol. I looked up youtube videos of birth videos, but they all seem to show full on shots of lady bits, which I'm not on board with showing my 3 year old lol. We plan on bringing a tablet with games, coloring, etc., but I just don't know if that will even hold her attention if I'm in obvious pain. She's extremely sensitive and empathetic, and gets worked up pretty easily if she thinks I'm not ok.... Any and all suggestions appreciated.
