Looking for PREGNACY and CHILD BIRTH Information

From: Kris


I have had VVS since age 3. I am now 29 and considering getting preganant. I am absolutely terrified of childbirth but I have always wanted a family. I am having a hard time finding someone to talk to about all this who really understands.

Can you please tell me if what pre-natal tests you had done? How many doctor visits did you have?How did you feel during your pregnancy? Did you have anxiety the entire nine months anticipating the birth?

Did you refuse an Iv or epidural. Will hospitals even allow this. Was your doctor a perinatologist- or did anyone use a midwife.

And if you did have natural childbirth, could you describe the experience.

Any advice or information you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
