But here's the thing; when I thought about it I realised that I wanted to enjoy it. It took so much effort, and so many years, to get pregnant that I kind of wanted to make the most of my one shot at labour. You know, become one of those women who smile serenely while popping out a ten pounder. So I decided I needed to start training. And as a member of the London Hypnobirthing team, I started by picking the brains of my inspiring colleagues about what I needed to do.
Now it's not often you get the chance to test drive your colleagues, and its a huge relief (though really I was in no doubt) that they did indeed take me over the finish line, euphoric and triumphant. So if you have never given birth, or are determined to do it differently the next time, and would like some first hand insight into the different ways you can think about training for labour, I'm your gal.
Personally I can't stand really long blog posts (and I haven't got time to write them) so I will be rolling out my 'training programme' over the next few posts, rather than bore on here.
