The fears about labor that aren’t worth having is is everything going to go okay. What’s going to happen? For me, I just had to trust my body. I surrounded myself with a wonderful support system where I trusted them so just going into a very honest place and just believing in yourself, that your body is created to do this.
If you’re going to get an epidural, you should not be afraid of pain at all. If you just go into it and get the epidural from the very beginning, it’s—you shouldn’t even think about the pain. I didn’t feel a thing going into it.
Honestly it’s not worth stressing about the pain of labor, just go with it. Go for it. It’s going to be there. Get it over.
Some of the things that I don’t think are fears worth having that a lot of people seem to be worried about are like will I poop on the delivery table? How will I look when I’m giving birth? I think that those things are really—you’re so in the moment. You really just—you don’t even think about that.
The biggest misconception about labor is that you can control it. I think most new parents go in with a birthing plan. They want to sit on a massage ball or they want to have a water birth or they’re going to have the epidural at stage zero. The thing is is that this is life. I mean I don’t know very many labors that actually go exactly according to plan.
There’s really no reason to ever fear labor because nothing can prepare you for how your day is going to go.
I think the fears about labor that are not worth having are just over planning it and overthinking it because it can go any way. You could come in with a certain plan and totally happen so just got with it and just go with your gut.
