When I found out I was pregnant, I felt I was very prepared with my
pregnancy knowledge. Each time I became pregnant - I read everything I
could. But back then I was also planning on a full epidural, hospital
run birth. I had no idea that I was actually the "consumer" in this
situation and that I had a lot of choices when it came to my birth and
the way my baby could enter the world.
As I started reading and researching - I realized just how many
things about natural, non-medicated birth I had no clue about. The
articles and websites below are where my husband and I found a lot of
the information that helped us to make the best choices for our birth
and the after care for our baby. You will make different decisions for
your birth and baby when you understand that you have many more choices
than you may currently be aware of.
The San Diego Birth Resource Network is a
wonderful site with many local providers to help you on your pregnancy
journey. If you can't find what you are looking for there - I would be surprised!
