I know some of you ladies from March 2007 and/or September 2010, but my name is Erin and I have a very active 3 year old named Christopher and am expecting another little boy in September.
Since the beginning of this pregancy, I have been saying that I want to have a different birth experience than I had with Christopher. While the outcome was wonderful, of course (healthy little guy), the process wasn't exactly what I had in mind (external version, heaps of pitocin, epidural . . . and lots of fear). I've been doing some research, and have decided to do HypnoBirthing, and am looking for a doula to help with our birthing experience. I'm working through the HynoBirthing book and have been listening to the relaxation exercises daily, while I look into classes. We will be at a hospital again, but the hospital we've chosen offers HypnoBirthing classes, acupuncture, reiki and aromatherapy, so I am hoping it will be a supportive environment.
Anyway, I am going to jump into this board for the last 4 months of my pregnancy, if that's ok with all of you! I know I have a lot to learn.
