Everybody has a different experience during those last few weeks of pregnancy and the during the birth process. For some, it involves carefully planning a C-section with a doctor beforehand, for others it involves inviting a birth coach into the labour ward to perform hypnotherapy, but in every case it is an exciting time for all, culminating in the first anxieties and joys of parenthood.
One thing that stands out to me is that no pregnancy or childbirth will ever follow a clinical textbook description nor even the dramatised versions of it on TV or in the movies. The experience of childbirth is unique to every parent and it’s interesting to see how people cope with the birthing process – especially when things do not go exactly as planned!
Each week on this blog train, we will be visiting some of my favourite bloggers-who-are-parents who will be telling us about their birth stories. I hope you will enjoy the journey with me!
