Both of my living children were natural births. No drugs and the only intervention was breaking my water at 9cm both times. The birth experience (at least to me) is important. I believe it truly impacts both you and baby. And while everything may not go exactly as planned, you can certainly prepare yourself as much as possible for a NCB.
I was somewhat afraid that after my experience with my son Eli (who was stillborn) I might have some fear about childbirth. I did hypnobabies with my next son and listened to daily pregnancy affirmation and then toward the end I listened to birthing affirmations and I really believe that helped. I also did fear release hypnosis exercises.
