I'm part of the May Due Date Club and have been for the last month or two. So far everyone on JM has been so helpful and nice! I just switched to a midwife, and I looooove her! I've decided to go all natural, or as natural as I can. They've got a birthing tub at the hospital, and a really nice room with a queen size bed in it. I attended my sister's birth back in December, and that's what got me looking into natural births. So anyway, I'll be lurking on this board, too! And I've noticed some familiar faces from May DDC, hi ladies!

Hiiiii!! I'm from your DDC and I'm so glad you've joined us here! I'm Cindy (just in case you didn't know - there are so many of us in the DDC) and mommy to Bryson who is almost 15 months. I'm one of the co-hosts here as well. If there is anything I can do to help you in any way achieve your natural birth please let me know. I think it's great that your hospital has a birthing tub. I had an OB with my last pregnancy and although in the end I did get a natural birth I switched to midwives this time and I love, love, love it. I hope to see you posting here more often. The ladies here are amazing!

Welcome and congrats! Glad you've joined us. Definitely use the birthing tub if you get the chance. I birthed my baby girl at a hospital and they had a jacuzzi tub that I was able to labor in and it really helps you relax which in turn helps you to have less pressure. Have you looked into a method such as hypnobabies or the bradley method?
