One of the best things you can do when you become pregnant is to educate yourself on what’s happening to your body and your baby. You also should know what to expect when you go into labor, how to cope with labor, and what happens to your body and baby during delivery.
It’s so important to know what to expect, what’s considered normal, what options you have for the kind of delivery you want, who you want as your healthcare provider and more!
Because if you don’t know your options, you don’t have any!
One of the best ways to become knowledgeable, (aside from taking a childbirth class) is reading books about pregnancy and childbirth.
I read a lot of books about pregnancy, labor and delivery when I was pregnant!
Being educated about what happens during pregnancy and birth increases the likelihood that you will have a more positive birth experience. This is again, because you know your options, you know what’s happening to you, and because of that you have more choices.
