Anxious about giving birth!

Postby mw76777 » Mon Jul 20, 2015 12:54 pm

This is my first pregnancy, i'm 23 weeks now and i'm starting to get really nervous/scared about giving birth! I don't know what to expect. Granted I start my Childbirth classes in a couple of weeks but I can't seem to get my mind off of the actual day I give birth. Anyone else feeling this way or am I a complete baby?? :(

It's normal and natural.

Best advice...... Prepare prepare prepare!

Read, research your pain relief options, get as much info as you can (not always from internet as full of horror stories (why would anyone share their easy peasy birth?? That's not interesting!)

Think about what you want to happen and how you want it to go and start putting together a birth plan.

Remember your body was made to grow your baby, it was also made to birth your baby.

You'll do an amazing job :)
