With the birth of my 2nd baby coming in a few short week I have been think a lot about baby girl’s impending arrival. Last time round I didn’t want to know anything about labour and birth. I didn’t want to watch one born every minute, call the midwife was about as much as I could take. The birth wasn’t something I was looking forward to but I knew I’d get through it.
This time round I couldn’t feel more different. I’m actually rather excited to do it all over again. I have opted to have a home birth this time round and it has made me feel so much more relaxed about the whole experience. I also hope to have the birth photographed by a professional photographer if the timings work.
Channel Mum have asked us to think about all the things that we wished we’d known before giving birth. I’ve filmed a little list of all the things no one told me and I wished they had. I hope you find this useful and that it prepares you a little if you are giving birth soon.
