... We are so terribly conditioned in our culture that childbirth is painful, awful, impossible without LOTS of drugs and it is hard to overcome that even when you intellectually know better. Deep inside your brains boogeyman closet is every horror story, every birth on ER or wherever else and they are just lurking there, waiting to distract you from your normal, healthy birth.

... Do you feel like your DP is on board with you? Are they willing to make the time to practice your relaxation techniques with you? In your previous labors have them been great support or just sort of 'feh'? I think husbands make great labor support, but not all do. If they aren't comfortable doing, aren't willing to prepare, etc... a doula is a good idea ...
