I had an epidural birth then a water birth. I break down the differences in my preparation, the procedures I had, and my overall thoughts. Plus, a list of things I wish I’d heard before my first birth.
This is the ironic story of how I came to choose water birth at the same facility I had laughed at and how it went.
I always believed that a standard, hospital, epidural route was the way for me. It worked, but I learned that it was not necessarily the easy route I had been sold.
Don’t worry, this isn’t a post about how I’m pregnant!—just why. (A sequel to “The Right Time to Have Kids”)
A guide for people who are pregnant, may ever be pregnant, have or may ever have a pregnant partner, have a family at all, belong to a church congregation, belong to any social group, or are people.
