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.

after having mil as my support last time I feel I have to say make sure you choose your support person with great care. I had no choice and I had no say while she was there. This time dh will be the only one allowed! Oh and watch out for babies first poo!

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

- Home, where my life lies waiting, silently, for me.
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.
