What childbirth methods have you read up on if any? Do you/did you plan to use a particular method for your home birth?

I took 3 or 4 lamaze classes when I was preggers with DS1 but ended up having him early. I didn't do any reading or anything with DS2 because the lamaze stuff I had learned with DS1 didn't help me a bit during labor. This time I started reading hypnobabies and lost interest.

My plan is to do whatever I need to do to feel "comfortable" while I'm laboring.

I did the whole lamaze shebang with Gage but I read up on the bradley method with Dane. I couldn't make it to any classes because my husband worked adn I had no babysitter. So I spent my time reading up on it.

I took a generic childbirth class with baby number 3. It was kind of stupid since I already had 2 kids by then. I do not like the breathing methods they teach there nor do I like the methods they use in the hospital much. I read a little on the Bradley method, but not enough and honestly of the ones I've read like his method best. I may read on hypnobirthing this time around. I just haven't got around to it.

I want to read more about hypnobirthing this time around. I took a generic class with my first, but the majority of the class was all about epidurals and c/s.

I did Bradley classes when I was pregnant with Lily and am just re-reading my class material this time around.

With DS I took a child birth class through our local hospital. There are no other classes anywhere near where I live. Most of the relaxation techniques they taught centered around lamaze. I never got to use them since I ended up having a c/s. And I know this isn't really a child birth method but I've read a lot about unassisted child birth during this pregnancy. I just plan on doing what feels right when the time comes.

With Jonah, I took a little over half of a bradley course. We had him before the course ended. I thought it helped tons, not only in labor but during pregnancy as well. I learned a lot of different things that I can do now to prepare for labor- like stretches and exercises. I used the positions that I learned in that class as often as I could during labor.

There are no bradley instructors in our area now though. I would have liked to take the whole course this time around. But I am just doing like Shelley and re-reading the materials

I took a Bradley class for my first, and after that just started reading everything I could get my hands on and using what I thought made sense to me. A lot of the Birthing From Within stuff was very helpful, but my second birth was mostly about throwing it all out the window and listening to myself. I'm in the ICEA childbirth educator program, and I hope to bring some of that mix, and trusting your own instincts to the classes I teach...
