My first labour was long and challenging, and I never immersed myself in any particular birthing theory/technique, rather I tried various positions/books/ideas that I had heard of. I never settled into anything and didn't feel I was able to cope with the pain well.
This time I am thinking it may be helpful to try out a particular program (hypno-babies, bradley etc). I haven't decided on anything yet, and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with these or other approaches? Were they helpful or not?
Thanks for any suggestions.
