Cady, you mentioned prepping DS. I am planning to have my DD at the birth and would love any resources that focus on that. Has anyone here had a DC at a previous birth? Planning to have one (or more) at this one? I had a loooong labor last time (30 hrs active) so definitely want to have plans with the neighbors for DD to be able to slip over there at any time. I also want her to have a good understanding of things so she doesn't get afraid or needy for me.
I simply can't WAIT to tell DD and start talking about the baby and birth and all that, but we are waiting... she would tell EVERYONE she encountered and I'm just not down with that right now. Just a few more weeks...
We chose a midwife and have our first appt next week, I am excited, interacting with the mw's make it so much more real!
is a great childrens book on homebirth meant to prepare a sibling for what will happen. My friend is using it to prepare her 2 year old son.
