Giving birth

I’m scared when it comes to me giving birth. I plan on doing it naturally because I’m terrified of needles but I’m afraid of the pain. I wish I could just snap my fingers and the baby will be here. Any advice or can you share your experience giving birth naturally? 😔❤️

I had the same freezing fear of pushing a whole human out before I gave birth. But honestly, once your body goes into contraction mode, it literally operates itself and puts u in a drunken state. You do what it tells u!! I don’t think it was as unbearable as I pictured up. (Plus gas and air worked so well for me because I held off having it until I was about 2-3 cm dilated!! Tips: -give birth on all fours, it works WITH the natural way ur baby is positioned to come out - take a cheeky breath in and push again when you’re pushing that final push, it will BE THAT BREATH, that makes the rest of bubbs come out instead of being a failed push bc u didn’t gulp down some air to continue pushing! - walk a lot in between contractions -keeeeeeep drinking water make sure ur birth partner knows to keep offering u water. You’ll tell him no no, but they need to make sure you’re hydrated. Pushing is THIRSTY work. -LISTEN to the nurses about pushing!

I'm pregnant with my 5th. My first ended with an epidural. But my other 3 were all natural. This course below is a refresher for me but it is soo good and it teaches nearly everything I have learned over my previous 4 pregnancies! I think it's still on sale for $100, which when it comes to birth courses is a fantastic value! https://mightymamamovement.com/order-form-practically-pain-free-birth1602158568315

Two things: 1) labor is slow! It happens in stages. So you won’t go from 0-100 in contractions- it’ll slowly build and you’ll be prepared for it in the moment as it continues to build. 2) my contractions were less painful and more tolerable than the pregnancy pains I had. I needed to be induced and it caused me to have 3 contractions in a row and at a longer length, so after 12 hours of that I was too exhausted and asked for the epidural. I was set against it as I’m extremely phobic of needles but I didn’t feel a thing and it was WAY easier and less scary than I thought! If you go that route you litrteallt won’t feel a thing and it’s way easier than any needle you’ve ever gotten.
