I'm having our 3rd child but since our first 2 were planned sections, I have absolutely no experience whatsoever with labour and birth! I've read lots of books, I plan to get The Pink Kit, I've watched homebirth videos on youtube. But I've no idea how any of this will relate to *me* and *my* experience.
I feel a bit lost, like I won't know what to do/how to do it, how to prepare, and any "things" I might need that might be useful! My birthworker has birth pools she loans out, so that's covered, but I'm wondering what might be helpful in terms of other things, maybe herbs, homeopathics, anything "practical".
So, for those who've BTDT, what sorts of things did you do/have that were useful? What wasn't? And for those who are new to this, what are your plans?
