Natural Birth & Parenting Natural Birth & Parenting

Hello! I'm Jillian and I'm due in February with #3! My second was born via c-section but this time I'll be going VBAC :) I am blessed to have found an incredibly pro-natural birth hospital! I'm seeing a midwife there and they have a very hands off approach to birth (sweet!). My dh is wonderful because it doesnt matter to him where when how I have this baby, as long as its what I want! Ok, well he wasnt too keen on having the baby at home :)

With my last baby I put a lot of stress on myself with planning the "perfect" birth which is something I have just realized and this time I just have to go with the flow. I'm not taking any classes, I know how to breathe just fine thank you, I know what I DONT want, and when I'm in labor I'll know what I do want. Maybe I'll labor in the tub, maybe I'll walk or use the ball or dance! I cant plan what is going to happen, nature must take its course and I have to let my body decide what it wants to do :)

congrats and welcome to the group, I had a VBAC almost 4 months ago, and let me tell you there is not better experience in my book.  Have you looked into essential oils for pain relief as well?  I used some and they helped a little. I am excited for you.

Lol, I'm quite excited myself :D
I know about essential oils, I just haven't done much research into pain relief. Do you have any book/website recommendations for me? I appreciate all help & info!
