Quoting PhilsBabyMama:The best advice I can give you is to birth at home or at a birth center. I had a natural waterbirth with my first (and only) and am so glad I did.
I have heard several people say not to bother taking the birthing classes because you'll know what to do when thetime comes. I recommend taking thehm anyways. What got me through was understanding the physiology of what was happening in my body, and how I had to cooperate to help it go faster. The method of cooperation is up to you and when the time comes you'll know what to do, but knowing what my body was up to helped me out a lot. I had my baby in the hospital, and told them I'd rather try to avoid the epidural. They understood and were very supportive. I'm going to try for a home birth next time, but I didnt have a bad experience in the hospital... besides if you stay for a couple days they give you free food all day and you have nurses to take care of you and baby. :)
