I figured it is about time that I introduce myself since I have been lurking in here for quite some time. I am pregnant with my first baby and I am due on April 6th. When my husband and I announced that we were pregnant, a friend of ours got on the phone with me right away and brought up the natural childbirth option. It wasn't even something I had thought of yet and it is definitely something I would have been apprehensive about had not talked to me about it. I am so so glad she did. I have learned so much since then and have chosen a birth center 10 minutes away to deliver. I am really excited and nervous about it all, but I do trust my body and its capabilities.

Welcome! I wish I had done more research about NCB when I was pregnant with my first. I didn't have a NCB until my 4th (born at home) but now I wouldn't have it any other way. So glad you have joined the board!

Hi! I'm new here too. I am having my 2nd in June and am planning my 2nd natural birth. It's so great to have a place to talk to people who have educated themselves about their options. That's so great that your friend talked to you about it! I'm becoming jaded myself about talking to people.. if I hear 'why would you be in pain when you don't have to' one more time I think I'll puke, lol. Good for you for learning more and giving it a chance!

Thank you for the welcome! I'll definitely look more into the resources available here. I don't tell many people that I plan on an un medicated birth because the few that I have told have given me the "you dont need to be a hero" speech or say that im crazy. There are a few who respect my decision and totally understand, but they seem to come far and few in between.
