Something really special for birth

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm not even sure what I'm asking for here but is anyone doing anything really special in preparation for birth, or during birth? I just have this feeling to do something really special this time.
This is my 3rd, and unwanted/unplanned/unexpected and until about a month ago, I still wasn't even really on board with having this baby! Then things changed- in an instant I fell in love with it. And I know it will be my last- which is fine with me!- and I feel like I really want to connect with this child in a special way before birth.

Any ideas??

I'm having a home waterbirth, which is completely opposite to my first birth experience.

I also envisage lots of candles during birth with gentle music playing. I also plan on taking a belly cast at some stage late in pregnancy

I dont know if they count but Im getting monthly massages until Im 8mo and then Im going for weekly(because my insurance pays for them!! Yay!)

Ive also planted about a zillion sweet peas which will still (hopefully) be in bloom in early October, they were still in full bloom when I got married last year in mid-September.

And its not really for before the birth but I just got back from Montreal where I picked up some of my favorite bagels and have frozen them because the first thing I want to eat after I give birth is a toasted Montreal bagel with whipped cream cheese, fresh fruit salad and a giant glass of fresh squeezed oj!
