So I am 18 weeks and starting to think about what kind of birth I'd like to try for. I've asked to be put though the midwifery group practice at my local hospital but I am still waiting to see if I qualify.
I've just heard about hypno and calmbirthing - can someone tell me of there is a difference? Has anyone here used it for their birth? Did it work?
I have also been considering a waterbirth, but there are limited baths so if one isn't available on the day then I can't go that way.
Ideally I'd like my birth to be as calm and relaxed as possible, and if I could somehow involve DH more in it too I think that would be beneficial for all of us I am of course worried about how I will handle the pain, so I'm trying to educate myself and see what methods help with this process.
So any stories/resources/ideas people would like to share, I'd love to hear!
