I'm a young mom just had my first baby a month ago people told a lot of crazy stories about labour and how harder will it get once his born. But evrything turned out quit different,I didn't have trouble with my labour. And right now I am enjoying evry single moment with my son. Things are different from person to person. Just look at your options with you health care worker and relax.

Every person is different and handles birth differently. The best thing you can do is get informed by asking your midwife/doctor, going to birthing classes and reading books.

I have had 3 children and each birth was completely different.

Ok, That's quite enough. I have deleted several posts and issued warnings. There are a number of people who have been completely insensitive to the OP and clearly have nothing to contribute to HELP the OP, other than personal attacks.

Further attacks toward the OP may result in further warnings and removals from the site.

I am just under 5 ft. Birth is scary, no doubt. Totally normal. I have 2 children. The first was c section the second was vbac. You will be ok.

If you can you should take a birthing class. The more you know the less you will wonder or worry. Your doctor will know if due to your small size if you can deliver. Ask her or him at your next appointment.

I'm small framed also , but I had no problem with my daughters birth. I pushed her out in 40 min which I guess is good for a first time mom. I walked a ton during my pregnancy to try and ease labor as much as I could. Every delivery is different whether your 6 foot tall or 5 foot tall. Just ask your dr what you can do to help the labor happen as easily as possible

I'm sure you will be fine :) Everyone's birthing experience is different. I must say mine wasn't one to recommend lol - I was in labour for 7 and a half days before the hospital decided to break my waters :( 4 weeks early and 7pound 3ounces later my son was born. Luckily my experience is uncommon so you shouldn't worry. How big is bub and when is he/she due? When you go into labour your body will turn onto auto pilot, so just 'go with the flow', and just remember, once baby has been born, those contractions stop and you will kinda forget about them when you hold bub :)

Everyone's birth experience is different. Like mine, I had no trouble. It was my first baby and I felt nothing thanks to the epidural. And I only pushed for like 5 minutes but i was realky scared of the whole baby coming out if my vagine. Lol .... My sister is 5 feet and she had a 9 pounder with no complications. You should be fine!

Hi Brenda Every body and birth is different and its quite normal to be scared the first time round I was so nervous but my first came 5 weeks early I laboured for 15hrs then my placenta started to come away her heartbeat dropped and off to c-section for me, here I am now with4 beautiful children. All with complications during birth all C-sections Your midwife will no if and how you are coping so just look forward to holding that wee bundle

I have a friend who is shorter than you are that gave birth to a 9 pounder with zero issues whatsoever. I also have a friend that is your size or taller.... who gave birth to a baby just under 6 pounds and if he had been any bigger.... he wouldn't have come out.

Height, often times, has very little to do with hips and birth canal opening. If you have concerns... discuss them with your doctor. Otherwise... try not to worry. You could very well have a vaginal birth with no complications... or you may end up needing a c-section. Either way the end result is getting the baby out safely. You'll be fine.

If they are going by ultrasound they can be way off with the size.

If the doctors are worried that you can't deliver naturally then surely they would discuss c section with you.
