Hi What a great subforum! I hope lots of people come here! Id appreciate any support I can get. I really want a natural birth using water to help the pain. I know its going to hurt but Im not afraid of that. So far Ive had a stress free pregnancy and no complications apart from cramp and heartburn (touch wood)
Looking forward to recieving tips also

Welcome!
I am hoping for a natural birth as well (a home birth actually) and this is also my first baby.

Hi and congrats. I'm also going for another natural, homebirth. (And I feel your pain about the heartburn. I ate an ice cream sandwich the other day and got some... that's how bad this pregnancy has been for me concerning heart burn)

Hi, I'm wanting to have a natural birth with this one. This is my 4th. I had a natural with my 2nd, but not by choice. He was born in the middle of a big snowstorm and the anestesiologist couldn't get to the hospital. My 1st and 3rd, they basically forced me to get an epidural. This time around I have a midwife and am wanting it natural. I could use any advice as well. Good luck to everyone else.

Well thats what I did when I was in labour with my daughter Serenity (now 13months)
I found that being under a hot shower, with ur partner or doula (or who ever is helping u) to take the shower portable head and spray it all over ur back and body. And also when ur having contractions its good to have someone putting pressure on your waist (hips). Like grabbing eachside and push in hard, and it works like wonders when ur having those contractions!
its even the best, to give birth in a birth pool...ive heard it dosnt hurt as much! its up to you. I hope this has helped :)
