I am nearly 1/2 way there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I think I need to work on preparing myself mentally and physically for the birth. The jist of my plan is one of two options; Home water birth or birthing center tub birth both drug-free.
The classes in my area are all on days/times that don’t work for me, so it’s going to be a self-taught kind of thing.
Books? Movies (saw Business of Being Born)? Suggestions? Right now I am working on walking, yoga and mindfulness techniques.

Anything by Ina May Gaskin!! She is the goddess of natural birth and I would be in Tennessee(our due date is today) having her birth my baby on The Farm if my husband did not give me the crazy eye. 🙂
