I'm 33 weeks and 3 days pregnant with my first baby, a little girl, and obviously getting so close to the birth, I'm starting to think about what I'd like to happen.
I hate hospitals and pain and to be honest, although I love children and I'm enjoying pregnancy, I think I'm the worst person for it as I freak out about any kind of blood or pain lol. (Wish me luck at the birth haha)
I've decided I'd like to give birth to Mawgan in a birthing pool at the local maternity centre and wondered if anyone here has ever had a water birth? I'd like to know what it's like. I get the impression it's quite relaxing etc. I've also decided to use gas and air and have an injection of pethidine.
Any info on what water births are like would be greatly appreciated. Good luck on all your pregnancies =)
