There are many ways that people prepare for childbirth, one way is by reading birth affirmations. Other expectant couples prepare by reading books, listening to podcasts, while some choose to take the “do nothing special approach” and wing it! About 5% of pregnant people will hire a doula to support them during their birth. Taking an excellent birth class though seems to be high on the preparedness list! There is no right or wrong, no cookie cutter way to prepare yourself for birth.
Reading positive birth affirmations and real birth stories is a great way to prepare for your big day!
