1. Make Sure You Have A Healthy Lifestyle & Diet SIX Months Before pregnancy!
Before your baby is even conceived, the health of both mother and father is important for a happy, healthy pregnancy. When asked, everyone, without exception, maintains that they eat a healthy diet, but this can vary widely.
One book which is definitely worth reading is Eat Right 4 Your Type by Dr J J d'Adamo. 2. Enjoy your pregnancy2. Enjoy Your Healthy Pregnancy
3. Research The Options Of Where To Give Birth.
Consider A Home Birth! Mothers often say, 'I've decided to give birth in the hospital, just in case……' Just in case of what? In fact, giving birth at home is statistically safer, and the statement should be turned around to, 'I've decided to give birth at home, just in case……' Most mothers who give birth in the hospital haven't 'decided' on that course of action. They've generally assumed that this is the safest thing to do. The mothers who have decided to give birth at home have genuinely decided, looking at the facts and realised what a fantastic experience it can be. So do your research so that the decision you make is empowering and safe for both you and your baby.
4. Prepare For A Natural & Gentle Childbirth. Hypnobirthing Techniques Are Ideal!
As a society, we know birth is usually painful, but if some women give birth naturally without pain, it's plainly possible. The fear of pain causes tension that inhibits the muscles' working and causes pain, which leads to more fear, etc. Hypnobirthing techniques are among the leading childbirth education methods today, which teach you how to release your fears. Only then is the breathing, relaxation, visualisation, etc. that you will also learn really effective.
5. Give Birth In An Environment Of Privacy, Confidence & Calm
Animals always go somewhere on their own, unobserved and safe to give birth. As far as the birth process is concerned, we are simply another mammal. If you feel observed, the body produced catecholamines and endorphins, which produce the fight/flight response and inhibit the uterine muscles' natural working. Home is where you are most in control of your environment, feel comfortable, and have your own privacy.
6. Work With Your Body. Your Body Knows What To Do.
Many classes tell you about labour positions, breathing in labour, visualisations in labour, etc.… In fact, the less you DO, the better, because your body knows what to do. It isn't easy to trust that if you're a first-time mother, but it's true. YOUR BODY KNOWS WHAT TO DO. You prepare yourself by being in the right state of being, allowing your body to get on with the 'doing' on its own.
7. Welcome; Your Baby With The Things It Recognises - Mother's Skin, Mother's Heartbeat, And Mother's & Father's Voices.
We cannot begin to imagine the shock of the experience of being born. We know that it is the most formative experience of our lives, and the welcome we receive will affect every other relationship we form throughout life. If birth is gentle, calm, easy and quick, and there are no drugs either in our own system or our mother's system, then that first welcome is as it is designed to be. That's first and immediate skin-to-skin contact with their mother so that the baby can get close to the heartbeat it recognises and be put to the breast immediately is of vital importance for the child's development.
