  1. I can definitely relate with your post. Before giving birth to my daughter, I was terrified of going into labour, but it’s just one of those things that you just go through with a positive mindset 🙂

    1. Yes, congratulations to both of us. Having a fab time these day with my daughter too. Hope we can share more motherhood experiences.

    That is definitely so true about movies and birth videos! I was terrified of giving birth and kept just putting it out of my mind, assuming when the actual day came I would deal with it then! My mother always told me it wasn’t so bad, and I rationalized that people wouldn’t have more than 1 if it was really terrible. I don’t even remember much about the day other than them placing my beautiful baby on my chest!

  5. This is going to be such a help for all expecting moms.. Thankfully I was given all happy advices by people around. I was really positive before both my deliveries.. And yes meditation and music help me do this.

    1. Glad you had a positive pregnancy experience just as I did. I’m hoping more women will experience the same. 🙂

    I was really scared of the birth too. But being informed about the birth process in detail really helped allay a lot of fears.


    1. That’s true. Knowing what you’ll be going through helps a lot to remove anxiety.
