That was my pregnancy. Healthy food, fresh air, positive emotions – I now began to pay more attention to this. Reading information about the development of the baby, about changes in the body, and childbirth: what to do so that they pass successfully.
I give birth easily and quickly
Inspired by the idea of giving birth quickly and easily, I began to practice special breathing during labor and regular gymnastics for pregnant women. Courses for expectant mothers further strengthened my faith in success.
There, the doctors told in detail how to behave during childbirth, how to do a massage, and that, of course, you must give birth with your husband.
But when I got into the hospital, and the contractions began, I felt completely at a loss. I forgot how to breathe, what to massage, and how to calm myself, but I really didn’t want to see my husband at the moment.
And here, for some reason, it was on this day that a girlfriend who lives in another city called me. Hi, this is Anya, what are you doing? I arrived for a few days, can we walk ?. I actually give birth now, and I could not take a walk, I replied.
Then Anya came to the hospital, to see. Seeing my confused state, she asked: Do you want me to stay with you until you give birth ?.
And so she stayed. She held my hand, told me when to breathe, and when to relax. In moments of severe pain she said: This is good, it means that you will soon give birth. The delivery lasted for several hours, and all this time I felt safe that everything would be fine. Late in the evening my baby was born.
Recovering after the birth, I was very grateful that a kind of guardian angel in the face of my girlfriend was sent to me.
Gymnastics, breathing exercises are important, but do not play a big role during childbirth. Now I understand how important for me was the presence of a person who knows, not by hearsay, what is the birth of a child.
