I am currently almost 24 weeks pregnant, due 2/16/14, and am hoping for a natural childbirth.
I want to prepare as much as I can, but am not finding books to be that helpful. The Hypnobirthing book I got seems to only talk about taking the class, and what I am looking for is something that will talk more about pain coping strategies. I have downloaded some meditation "songs" from Amazon that are great, but from there, I am not quite sure where else to go or what to do.
I have not spoken to my midwife about it yet, for I do still have time to go, and I also plan on speaking with a doula on making a birth plan, but I am not sure if there is anything else I can be doing. I just want to make sure me and my husband are prepared.
If you have any suggestions as to what worked for you in preparing it would be much appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
