Natural Labor

If you goal is to have an natural birth the first most important thing you need to do is take a childbirth class to prepare yourself for labor. In your childbirth class you will learn what to expect during the labor process and how to cope with the pain. Learn and practice as many natural coping techniques that you can to handle the pain of labor. Make sure that you have a supportive partner. Talk to your healthcare provider and make sure they are on board and supportive of your desire to have a natural birth. Consider giving birth in a birth center or with a midwife. Hire a doula to help support you during your labor.
