So my son's birth was a very painful and scary experience because neither I nor my husband were prepared for it and I ended up having lots of interventions because of it. IV, epidural, constant fetal monitor, episiotomy (stitched without Novacaine...), doctor who came into the delivery room and set up his iPod to play Jimmy Buffet as I pushed...:(
I am unable to attend Bradley Method classes because of an extreme family schedule but I've been reading up on it, and aside from the exercises actual relaxation methods for use during labor, did anyone try the diet recommendations he makes? Did it help with labor?
At first it seemed old-fashioned to me...4 glasses of whole milk a day, two eggs, liver once a week. But then I examined my own diet and realized that it's horrible and full of sugar and processed foods.
