I admit that for my last 2 labors i have been absolutley terrified, but this time i am actually looking forward to giving birth, but i really want it to be different and I want to be more in control (unlike my previous births where i have just done everything the doctors and midwifes have told me without even questioning if it was in my best interest or not).
Anyway this time i have been reading about hypnobirthing, seeing as i have relatively short labors (around an hour) , I feel pretty confident that i can use what i have learnt to get me through, but i still have that nagging doubt , that 'what if it all gets too much' ....
I dont want to use the gas like i normally do because it just makes me laugh and then cry and just makes me feel spaced out and i want to be in enough control this time to see her born and maybe even help deliver her, I guess my question is has anyone else ever had any experience with hypnobirthing? did it work for you? any tips?
Is anyone else thinking (or overthinking lol) about their labor and birth or am i the only weird one? lol
What does everyone else plan on using for pain relief?
