I remember when me and my husband Nana were expecting our first baby son Zachariah!I had no idea what to expect from birth and found myself constantly asking my mother, my sister in Law in america, friends , family! And any woman I came into contact with the huge question!''WHAT IS BIRTH LIKE ''WILL I DIE? ''HOW DOES IT FEEL?'' IT IS WORSE THAN PERIOD PAINS?All these questions kept coming into my mind I kid you not!The most common answer was it would feel like a bad period however x10!I tried to comprehend but still struggled to do so!My sister in Law warned me about the ''ring of fire' which is a process whereby the babies head is coming out!This really prepared me for some part of the birth to feel hot in sensation! Oh boy she was right!However I Want to encourage all ladies who are thinking of natural births to go for it!Natural birth is the way foward also the recovery with natural is much quicker!Having a natural birth I found myself doing the following:Having 0 ! Yes zero Stiches with my second born son Malachi! and 2 with my first Zachariah!Alarming as many I know had as many as twenty stiches!Also I found myself back to Wife and Momma cooking mode!On the 3rd/4th day kid you not I was cooking and cleaning!Not because I didnt have the support and network but because I just wanted too!Dont worry I was taking it easy and having rest too!Ladies what was your first hand experience of natural births?Any one here expecting their first child?How are you feeling right now?
