3 thoughts on “Mentally Preparing For Childbirth & My “I Don’t Want To Know” Rule

  1. I only have this to say: women have been giving birth since the beginning of mankind and many women go on to do it a second, third, fourth etc time. Is childbirth fun? Not really. Are there things that can help (from meditation to medication)? Sure. Is there any one right way to do it? Heck no. And, the hard part is no matter how many times you do it, every pregnancy and baby is different. So, I say- making decisions with your partner and doctor is the only way to go. Good luck and don’t fret. One way or another, that baby is coming out and that’s really all that matters on the other side!

    1. Jamie! Thank you so much for this comment. I agree. I’m going to make a plan and then try to put it out of my mind. I know there are limited ways for me to truly prepare for what’s to come. Thanks for the good luck wishes!

  2. Be mindful that some doctors may discourage you from making a birth plan, but do so anyway. Also consider taking a birth class especially if you prefer to have a natural birth.
