When you are pregnant with your first child, giving birth is the great unknown. The good thing about it is that you have nine months to come to terms with all that it entails. We at Pregly want to give you the tools to better understand what happens to your body during labor and what you can do to aid in the process of the delivery.
We want you to feel empowered to make informed decisions about where and who you want to experience childbirth with. It is the start of you and your baby's life together. It deserves some thought and we are here to guide you through the many options you have.
One of the first questions your midwife will ask you is if you have thought aboutwhere to have your baby. We've looked into some of the options available and the pros and cons for each one.
After the first three months, some women can't seem to curb their curiosity and begin readingbooks on birth. For this, we've compiled a useful reading list for you. If you think three months is a bit too early, you can always leave them on the shelf until you've passed the six month mark.
These books will cover in great detail what the signs of labor are, but if you don't feel like sifting through pages and pages to understand the process of childbirth, then check out our guide on the signs of labor.
Although there are few things that you have completely under control during childbirth, that shouldn't stop you from preparing yourself as best as you can. And one nice way to do so is to get your hospital bag in order.
