Can I vote for myself?? I'd love some good labor vibes sent my way. 3 days until my DD...
Let's guess the next birth! - Page 3
I hope all of you are feeling comfortable, and hopefully it won't be too much longer!
Out of curiosity, is there anyway that you are preparing for surgery? (Do they recommend you take arnica or anything? Any way to prep for it? I had an unplanned c-section with DS, so I was just wondering...)
I have been taking a double dose of my Floradix for two weeks. This weekend I stopped my fish oil, as it can increase bleeding. I have Anica and staphasagria (sp?) homeopathics for after. Staph supports the healing of surgical wounds. I also have some tamanu oil and manuka honey for the wound itself. I also got permission ahead of time from the OB and the anesthesiologist for my doula (who is actually a HB midwife) to be present in the OR to support me and DH. I am having a tubal after the surgery so DH will have to be with the baby alone for a short time. My last was a NICU baby though, so I have less attachment to everything being perfect and more to things just going smoothly. KWIM?
And will have you in mind this weekend too, askew, as you prepare for your birth. I hope it will be peaceful and that your recovery will be easy. My friend had a beautiful cesarean birth a couple years ago. The baby was able to be placed on her directly after birth, even nursed in the or. I hope your experience brings a feeling of completeness as hers did. Much love.
