What method did/do you plan to use? Are you just going to wing it? Hypnobirthing? Bradley?

Planning on hypnobirthing, but haven't started yet. We're REALLY hoping to get into it soon, though. Our moving and family emergencies have gotten in the way of ALL planning, though.

We took Bradley classes with Cameron. That worked quite well so I'm going to use those tools I learned again this time.

I too am a Bradley girl. They really helped with Xander and Lucas... so I'm sure they'll help with this little one too.

My kids are Bradley Brats - though I do glean information from Suzanne Arms and Ina May Gaskin (among others) too. Also a Bradley instructor.

Hey My-Serenity, you have a Xander, our's (this one) is a Xander. You are Michigan, me too. I am 20-something, you too... sweet!

I want to do Bradley, but there aren't any classes in our area. So... I don't know.

I never had a specific "method", I just went with the flow and did whatever felt right....

Good luck ladies!

Love,

I'm finding that I should apparently change my answer to something like the above! We're going to learn a few relaxation techniques that DH can help with, but in the end, we're going to do whatever works! Plus, there are no classes on methods around me and even the childbirth classes (overview) will overlap with my birth! Thinking that I'll be ducking out on those...

I did hypnobirthing--it was wonderful! I loved every minute of my labor and delivery. I plan on using it for every birth!
