1. When I refer to Natural Childbirth, I'm referring to giving birth to my little boy without taking medication for pain.
2. I am taking classes in about a month and I've chosen to learn the Bradley Method, a popular childbirth method.
3. Yes, I am crazy.
4. While my intention is to succeed, I have no prideful issues about getting pain medicine and I've decided to leave my mind open to whatever happens.
5. I am completely proud of and supportive of all the mothers who've come before me and their path to delivering their child. Yeah for every mom out there :)
Now to the rambling ...
I've officially started my natural childbirth training. On vacation a few weeks back I started by reading this book and then today at the library, I got this book.
I'm naturally a researcher and a planner so reading and gaining as much information about this topic as I can is good for me.
You can see my weekly goals on the right with regard to the exercises that are recommended. I have the same checklist in my office so I can maintain some sort of progress report as I go along. Yesterday I focused on kegel exercises, tailor sitting and squatting. My main goal is to develop a solid routine and good habits BEFORE the start of our childbirth classes in mid August.
My resource for exercise is this website.
So far, so good folks!
