Exploring your birth options can feel overwhelming. In a matter of months, you'll need to sift through options and opinions and come to your own conclusions - no easy feat. Start by learning the basics: the different types of birth methods, intervention techniques, providers and philosophies that are available to you. Speak with other parents about what worked or didn't. As you start exploring your options, you'll find that planning your experience isn't black and white. Most women fall somewhere in between a totally natural birth and a completely medical one. There are many different ways to give birth and no experience is quite like the last.
