Ina May's Guide to Childbirth

Both the birth stories and some of her suggestions that stuck with me that I actually used during labor

Determination! A tub to labor in, and an upright birthing position.

I could not have had a natural birthing experience without preparation.

Doing hypnobabies, research, posting on this board, all of it helped so much. Plus I think I got lucky and there weren't as many challenges as there could have been (no complications, no need for induction, relatively short labor, etc.)

Love the Jesus comment! Me too!

Also, DH, Hypnobabies and all the research I put into it, just being prepared, like Michele said.
