I am not sure if I am posting in the right spot and will remove the post if necessary.
Ok so here is my question or issue. I am expecting my 4th child in April 2014 and I have just started considering my options as far as the birth. My other three children have been medicated hospital births. Simply I can't handle the pain. I am afraid of it and I panic during contractions. I am somewhat looking into a water birth and a big part of would love the be able to experience that, as this is our last baby. But I am so afraid that the pain would get to be too much and we live an hour away from the closest hospital. I am wondering if I can overcome this and take charge of the situation. I would love to be able to work with my bodies natural reaction and not fight against it because I feel like I can't handle it. It's easy to think I could handle it right now but during labor it's a different story. The contractions get painful and I wimp out.
I am not sure if that came across the right way or if there is an understandable question in there but any feedback would be appreciated.
