No I am not planning on giving birth Dugger Style in our home. I would like to give birth at a safe hospital environment. However my husband doesn’t do well in hospital type situations so I have very low expectations of him being conscious or in the room when our children are born. The idea of a midwife being there with us/me will be calming to know she has helped hundreds of women in hundreds of ways go through child birth. They are there to coach you through the pain. I’m not against an epidural but I have heard a number of horrific stories about them. I would like to try it naturally I guess. I would obviously take it if the pain was too unbearable for me.
No Mom I am not pregnant! We have a baby date in mind so don’t worry it’ll happen eventually! I want to be prepared on the day Eric and I start to expand our family. I don’t want to get pregnant and then look at each other and say now what?! I want to be knowledgeable on a topic that involves not just my health and body but also my life being completely changed.
If you have any stories or input about midwives vs doctors I would love to hear about them. The more research and facts I have to prepare myself the better!
