You know that moment. You’re standing there by the bathroom counter watching the tiny window that will foretell your future. There it is, a faint, blue, second line. All of a sudden, an avalanche of emotions comes rushing in. It’s a mixture of excitement and fear and everything in between. I’ve experienced 6 positive pregnancy tests in my life, and I felt that rush of emotions every time. (I’ve also experienced a lot of negative test results, but that’s a post for another day.)
Within that crazy bag of emotions, there are so many questions and fears….is this for real…am I up for this…will I be a good enough mother…this baby is in there and will eventually have to come out…is the baby going to be healthy…what if I have a miscarriage…what doctor do I choose…where do I deliver…will it hurt…am I going to be sick?? The list goes on and on. In this blog, I hope to help you sort through those thoughts, help answer your questions and concerns, and help you to create and have a beautiful birthing experience which starts the moment you see that second line.
