  • Be sure to take your own pillow!! I've heard hypno birthing is a very soothing experience.

  • Try to remember that birthing isnt just painful on you, its extreamly painful for baby. If you have netflix watch "the business of giving birth" It opened my eyes about alot of things, and made me make the best informed choices I could. You are your babies advocate, everything your doing is for her, and everything you feel, shes feeling too, even more so actually. The key to staying calm is remembering that :) Good luck mama.

  • Drink Raspberry Leaf Tea!!!!

    It strengthens the uterus. Studies have shown that mothers who drank it throughout the Third trimester and especially in the last couple of weeks tend to have SHORTER and LESS painful births!!
