I’m so excited to be working with Primed Birth and the Tummy team to bring you a review of their online courses! They generously offered my course for free but rest assured all opinions are my own.
Motherhood is something I have been looking forward to since my husband and I decided to get married. I have always wanted to be a mom. Unfortunately our path to parenthood wouldn’t be as easy as we hoped.
But thankfully after six years of marriage and thousands of dollars in fertility treatment we are now expecting our first little boy in only three weeks! Can you believe that? I know crazy. So here’s the thing about trying to conceive. Conception is the goal, which makes sense right? You have to conceive before you get a family. Pretty simple. Now what you’re not thinking of is giving birth. Birth is a whole other ballgame one that I was pretty unprepared for. I have spent the last years trying to get a baby in my belly, that I haven’t thought about how to get baby out. Which is pretty important.
I’ve watched dozens of birth videos, talked with my mother and other family members about their birthing experiences and still I felt unprepared. So naturally I started looking for classes, but with my busy schedule and hubby’s work schedule I really wanted something online instead of in person. Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything online that seemed reputable. Which is when I contacted Primed Birth and the tummy team. These courses, offered both online and in person really helped me feel more comfortable and prepared.
My Birthing Fears
Starting with The pain…. Pain terrifies me. I’m sure I have other fears such as the health of my baby, pooping with my feet in the stirrups etc. But the pain is right there at the top of the list. Thankfully Carly, who teaches the course, has a way of framing the pain that makes it seem manageable and less scary.
Another fear I have is not being prepared. I am a very impatient person, and doing little tasks or projects while I wait for some big event to happen, helps me keep my mind off of whatever it is. Carly has given me plenty of things to do and think about, to prepare for labor. Which is great. I love channeling my nervous energy into something productive.
What Has Helped Me The Most So Far
Most of all, these courses have helped me feel prepared. I have no control over when I go into labor, whether or not my water will break on it’s own, or even what doctor is on call at the hospital that day. But I do have control over how I handle each of the hurdles that are thrown at me while laboring.
