As a woman, I had this passion for raising my kids. The idea of getting married and bearing two beautiful kinds was always my dream. However, people in my community kept taking how horrible it is. I also watched some videos that I didn’t find them worth looking at them again. I wanted to give birth naturally and at this point. I thought it was not worthy of keeping listening to those horror stories more. Therefore I kept researching more on what to do to achieve what I wanted. I Educated myself through the information that is available online is very good for yourself.
When I got pregnant, I followed the procedure that most women do. I visited my physicians, and the normal test was done, and the rest followed. What I knew is that I had to do something different to make me naturally get my baby. It is good too if you get a good birth experience. It is something one can achieve with the right information and guidance. I came to know that to have this, I had to do more researches and set my goal right. I was in my pregnancy journey and I hand to take full control of it.
One of the important things I came across is when pregnant, and it is wise to have women friends who have had empowered birth experiences. And more so find those who are ready to share. The midwives and your friends can help you allot in looking for a few of them. You have to get some referrer. This is something I did and got a few of them who later become my friends. They gave me all the support I wanted and still educated me a lot. Having other mothers around you can help you to know the outcome of everything.
I watched some videotape too to help myself in preparing my mind on what was awaiting me. This was quite a journey that wanted to be more and more prepared off. As time passed, I asked my sister to come and look after me since I was feeling a lot of fatigue at some point. Also, I had a lot of fear too. As the day approached, I witnessed to sighs of first labor and believe me, and I was not so sure about it. My sister was a mother of two so I knew she would help me out very well. I didn’t want to engage mu husband into it so much since he too was inexperienced in this.
When the big day came, my sister and my husband took me to a local hospital that is next to our home. They found it funny because I was so relaxed and much more prepared to have a baby. My husband was not as comfortable as me. He was so worried. I guess his friends had spoiled him with fake stories. On reaching the hospital, I was welcomed by a midwife who had referred to me a certain woman to guide me and I was happy since she was helpful all day to me. My child delivery did not take long and I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy.
