Young Mama Wants Natural Birth in a Hospital Advice Please?! :)

Posted by   + Show Post

I am posting for my little sister who is 20 and having her first baby. She really wants an all natural hospital birth. She's afraid of a home birth at this point.

What advice can you give her. 

-What to put in her birth plan?

- What foods are good during labor?

-What are necessary situations for interventions?

Those type things... Our local hospital is known for bullying people into unnecessary measures! 

Thanks EVERYONE! I plan on making her a little book for her baby shower with all your tips

Has she considered the 2 hour drive to get the best birth experience?  I know that I think it would be worth it, since it is her first she will likely have a long labor so 2 hours isn't too terrible.

She has considered, but her mom is who will be driving her and she has rheumatoid arthritis and can't drive in the car that long. Her case is very advanced and Amy really wants her at the birth. So she is willing to sacrifice that experience so mom can experience the birth.
