Now that I'm 36.5 weeks, I've started doing some things every day that I have heard might make labour and delivery a little easier. I thought it might be nice to have a thread where we can share our preparations and maybe learn a thing or two.
Although I think this baby is going to come earlier rather than later, I'm willing to do just about anything (no long as there's no chance of harm) to maximize how smoothly her delivery might go. I'm pretty sure I'd go out and howl at the moon every night if someone told me it might shave 20 minutes off delivery time.
I'm now drinking just about two cups of Raspberry leaf tea everyday and I've recently discovered this research about dates, so I'm eating just about six everyday.
I know that I should be doing perineal massage, but I just can't figure out how to work it into my day.
