If you’re pregnant for the first time, the thought of birthing your child may be rather frightening. You’ve seen the movies of the women screaming for epidurals. Will that really be what you will go through? Angel Leya decided to share her experiences with pregnancy and childbirth, delivering without the aid of medication. Read her story, along with helpful information and references, to help you prepare for your own birth.
A Note From the Author
When I was pregnant for the first time, I didn’t want to think about the delivery. Women had been doing it for ages, so it shouldn’t be too hard, right? But despite my self-assurances, I was frightened. What would it feel like? Would birthing damage me? Did it really have to look like that manic scenes from the movies?
I’m so glad I found my doula. The information and techniques she imparted changed my life, though I don’t know if I could have made it through that first delivery without her. I wanted to share what I learned in the hopes that it would encourage others to consider all their options when giving birth, and enter labor and delivery with the confidence I felt.
Giving birth is by no means easy, but it is manageable if you know what you’re doing. I know. I’ve done it twice.
I loved getting to see into her personal journey and see how much love she had for her baby through the whole process.
