Thank you for this video, I’m having a hard time finding Audio or Visual
training tools re: the Bradley Method. My husband is an Audio learner and
I’d like to find a better resource for him than a book. Any ideas? Great
and helpful info!

I also read the first two books. The stories in Ina Mays book actually were
what got me interested in going natural! Great video! Love her cheeks!

love this! it IS primarily a mental thing. with my oldest [induced], i was
so uneducated and fearful so i got an epidural after the first contraction.
with my 2nd [induced], i labored med-free, but didn’t want to feel birth so
i got another epidural at 7cm. with my 3rd, i wanted a natural birth and
didn’t give myself any other option. i can honestly say that, while labor
wasn’t the most comfortable thing ever, the BIRTH part didn’t hurt.
knowledge is power and positive thinking goes a LONG way.

I actually was on my back, but reclined rather than flat and I was holding
my legs behind my knees and kind of pulling them towards me every time I
pushed. I had originally planned on using the squatting bar on the bed but
I had been in labor for 4 days at that point and had NO energy left for
squatting. The position they had me in worked just fine for me because
Charlotte came out in about 7-8 contractions. If she wouldn’t have come out
so quickly I probably would’ve changed positions.

How did you get through that moment where you thought,”fuck, I can’t do

eatschnitzel says:

I have read all of those! If you were liking Bradleys way of thinking My
was by far the best labor book we have found. Very orriented towards
helping the husband in aiding with the whole process and what is happening
inside your body. We are trying for our first birth in a birth center with
lovely midwives:) Love your videos!

MilenaThomas says:

If you don’t mind my asking – what position did you end up pushing in? I am
just now reading “Natural Hospital Birth” and she recommends anything but
lying on the back…did you do something different?

PearlDahhhling says:

Thank you!

“Mom brain” never goes away, but I got everything you were saying so you’re
good lol. Also, another thing women do is induce labor because they can’t
stand the dreaded due date. This can lead to many problems and often times
results in a c-section. I heard or read that women outside the US start
labor 5-6 days after the due date on average and labor can last days, where
here, hospitals rush everything like you said. My mom was in labor for 3
days with her first baby, all natural. Great vid!!

slun4evka says:

Thank you for this video! What is your opinion on orgasmic birth and do you
think it’s possible to really not feel pain during labour and delivery?
Your baby is just the cutest! <3

KittyLovesHerSailor says:

I think you are so right. Giving birth natural is a lot to do with mental.
I was actually expecting labor to hurt a lot worse! I never even thought of
reading books about natural labor! I got stuck at 8 and the doctors said it
was because I was so tense so maybe if I would have read some books on how
to relax I could have gone all the way! Taking note of that for next time!
