Mummy To Be – Preparing For Birth

Birth is a scary and daunting time. Now, I’m no professional in sharing tips for preparing for birth, but I can give you what helped me. If you want professional tips, you should speak to your midwife at your next appointment.

Now for my tips. Yes, it’s going to hurt. Just keep in your mind that this pain is going to be worthwhile. At the end of it, you’ll have your beautiful baby who you can take home to enjoy.

With regards to coping with the pain, remember to breathe through it. Breathing will help you to stay on top of the pain and be less anxious. If you find you can’t take it, accept all the pain relief the midwives offer you. It’s there to help you, they’re there to help you get through it.

Finally, remember to listen. The midwives are telling you what to do for your safety. If they say push, you push. If they say walk, you go for a walk. It’s all in your best interest.
