There are so very many things to learn about when it comes to pregnancy, labor & childbirth. There’s what to eat or not, drink or not, wear or not, do I keep working, what about working out? How is my mindset? What am I listening to, what should baby be listening to? And so much more!
The best thing you can do for yourself & your baby, is to educate yourself. Read the books & the blogs. Listen to the podcasts. Watch the documentaries. Talk to family, friends, people at the prenatal yoga classes. Birthing classes are an amazing asset to everyone – there are so many available. Take in all the information you possibly can – and then decide what makes sense to you.
Whether it’s deciding whether you want to birth in a hospital or at home.
Whether it’s to buy the latest gadget out there or not.
Whether it’s to breastfeed, bottle feed or both.
And yes, whether or not you want to eat your placenta.
There are so many different opinions on all of these.
And yes, you can find ‘science’ out there to confirm whichever way you believe.
The important thing to know is that it’s your choice. Your baby. Your life.
And the more you educate yourself – from all sides and perspectives – the more clarity you will have on what is ‘right’ and what is ‘right’ for you.
So take a deep breath… and slowly let it out. Everything you need to know is right around the corner. I’d love to hear what questions you may have. Feel free to leave a comment in the notes section on a topic you’d like some info on.
Stay happy, stay healthy, stay hydrated – you got this!
