  • Agreeing on a Birth Plan

    QUESTION

    My partner wants a hospital birth complete with an OB/GYN. My preference is a home birth with a midwife but I was willing to compromise on using a birth center. He's not budging.

    What are some ways that I can help him move away from this sterile birth experience to one that I'm more comfortable with other than just telling him "I'm not doing it!" and creating another war?

    I get that is how his sisters and friends' wives delivered but this is MY birth experience, too!

  • Partner Afraid to Attend the Birth

    My husband doesn't think he can handle being in the room when I have the baby. Pain is not something that he does well with and the sight of blood makes him freak. Is it hopeless to think that he can overcome this?

    My family and friends all are giving us both a hard time about this as otherwise they view him being "unsupportive." I’d like to give him the benefit of a doubt as this is the way he's been as long as I've known him (10 years!)

    Thanks for the help!

  • BUEATIFUL WONDERFUL

    HI,
    WELL I WISH I DID JOIN THIS AS A MOM, BUT THINGS ARE DIFFERENT FOR ME NOW. I REALLY DO GET PREGNANT, EVERYTIME WE TRY BUT I DONT USUALLY STAY SO FOR LONG. I DO HAVE A CONVICTION IN MY HEART THAT I WILL STAY PREGNANT THIS TIME FOR THE DURATION AND HAVE MY BUEATIFUL BABY. MY HUSBAND CANT WAIT TO CARRY HIS CHILD AND I AM BESIDE MYSELF AS WELL. WE TRUST GOD FOR A STAY POWER. I JUST NEED ADVICE FROM MOMS AND MOMS TO BE ON HOW I SHOULD GO ABOUT STAYING PREGNANT. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ANSWER MY QUESTION ON HOW TO STAY PREGNANT AND WHAT I OUGHT TO DO TO KEEP FIT.

  • I just found out I'm pregnant yesterday!

    I just found out yesterday that I was pregnant. And the bloodwork just came back this morning so I talked to my doctor. And I am infact pregnant. Probably only a few weeks. Since this is the first time pregnancy for me, I'd like to know as much about what to expect, stories, everything on pregnancy. I have a few books including What to Expect When Expecting, i just want to know all different things from all aspects. I'm very excited and so is my fiance, but yet I'm also very nervous because all I can think about is the pain parts of pregnancy, espesially labor, and I'm not good with pain.
