Going into childbirth I was terrified. I have no pain tolerance and everyone says that child birth is the most painful experience in the world. But the thing about pain is that it’s forgettable. So even when I had already gone through it all once with my daughter, I was terrified to do it the second time with my daughter.
Even though, I have no more plans to have anymore children, I have been introduced to a new series and perspective on childbirth. I’ve been looking a book by Sheri Bales, Laugh and Learn about childbirth. It’s the book I needed and didn’t have because it’s about the scariest part. All about labor, the signs, medications, preparations, positions. When I was going into labor with my daughter, it was nothing like the books said it would be. There was no consistency. Even when I called the hospital they said I was not in labor and to stay home. Shortly after calling them, my water broke, I called them again to say I’m coming in be prepared. I had the baby within the next hour. We barely made it to the hospital in time.
In her book she talks about ways to be prepared, positions to help the body deal with pain and help the baby come out more easily. It makes sense to let gravity help right? With my son, I think the most comfortable thing was using the bouncy ball which is one of her recommendations. I just warn you, do not let them break your water unless they have to. The pain after that is unbearable in my opinion.
Going into childbirth with knowledge makes the experience a lot less frightening and out of all the books I read, I have never seen such a fact filled version of what to expect during childbirth. Not only was it really informative there were over 40 illustrations and everything was organized into 6 easy to understand chapters. I’m a very visual person so I really enjoyed all of the illustrations and charts for facts.
Not only does Laugh and Learn have a book collection but they have DVD’s and T-shirts.
