I read resources listed here, things I found on google, and I especially love evidence based birth (website). I also watched the Business of Being Born which I rec. to anyone and everyone. I read birth stories - not just natural birth stories, but birth stories of all kinds. I explored the full realm of births. I also asked a lot of questions of moms all over (irl, on here, natural and non-natural). I feel like doing so gave me a realistic expectation of labor and delivery - meaning that I didn't really expect anything at all because it is unpredictable, that it would hurt, and that I absolutely could have a natural birth despite that (I ended up being surprised that it was not as painful as I anticipated).

Thanks so much Claire for my awesome siggy
