I can't wait to read it - Husband Coached Childbirth. I know I will definitely not be getting an epi due to my spinal fusion and part of me just wants to prove to the people who give me those looks when I tell them I want to go pain med free - they look at you like "yea right", it just makes me more determined to prove them wrong!
First off, congrats! I don't know if you remember me from the TTC board, but I remember you!
Secondly, we did Bradley with our first and let me tell you, I LOOOOOVED it! Good for you for wanting to prove wrong anyone who doubts you! My first midwife told me, "We can try a natural birth, but since you are a first time mother, you have no idea what you're getting yourself into. Just don't be ashamed when you beg for an epidural." Yeah, I found a new midwife and had my DD completely intervention-free! Take that, doubting midwife!!! I'm a wuss and had a very difficult labor, so if I can do it, I would say that just about anyone can!
If you want, feel free to PM with any questions/concerns you have. I am a birth junkie and love to chat about it!
Again, congrats! I am so very, very excited for you! Happy reading!
