    On the flip side, you may not get the birth you want or expect. It's completely normal and okay for you to feel robbed of your birth experience - you are well within your rights to feel however you want to feel after your birth be it a positive or not so positive feeling. Anything you feel is valid and worth talking about.

My advice is if you have pain while weeing, get some Xylocaine gel from the chemist which will numb any sore bits and make weeing a breeze And Coloxyl or prunes to get the bowels moving
    The midwives gave me Ural for the stinging, a little sachet of powder to add to your drinking water when needed. It was a godsend, worked immediately and I only needed it once. Magic stuff

    Something I forgot too, when breastfeeding your milk doesn't come out one hole. It sprays out like a watering can out of lots of little holes.
    Also I had an overwhelming thirst that hit me every time i fed so make sure you have your water there to drink at the time before you start.

    You may not know when you are in labour, i had mild pain all night, heated a bit from 2 am but nothing like i imagined, my mum (has 8 kids) did not realise i was in full labour, the midwife on thought i was in early labour ... i was 8 cm dilated lol.

    I didn't realise that the final contraction to push bubs body out seems to take forever. I had a water birth and started to freak out seeing her head under water for what seemed like an eternity between those final 2 contractions

    i feel for those that felt they lost thier dignity during birth.
    i had a traumatic birth, yet at every step I was respected and able to give clear informed consent to any interventions.
    i had a room full of people, was naked and had various peoples hands inserted in various parts of my anatomy, yet never once was I treated with out dignity.
