Pregnancy is a miraculous time in the life of every woman. For nine months, you have been growing, nourishing, and taking care of your unborn child as being part of your own body.

You have also been making every effort to connect both yourself and your soon-to-be-born baby with the support and harmony of your surroundings.

Yet, have you started preparing for the arrival of your child and the sacred pains of labour and delivery that you will have to face and endure?

The nine months of pregnancy will pass quickly, and soon you will feel the first contractions, signalling that your baby is ready to leave your body.

Are you all set for safely bringing him or her into the world? Have you prepared for the childbirth?
A Bit of History…
For countless generations, women of all cultures have been helped by midwives standing by them with all sorts of emotional, spiritual, and medicinal support throughout pregnancy and childbirth. The word “obstetrician” is actually derived from the Latin word “stare”, which means “to protect”, “to support”, or “to stand by”.

Modern obstetrics, although have far drifted from a natural, traditional aid in delivery, and turned into quite an invasive medical practice, nonetheless have made the process of labour and delivery a good deal less dangerous and painful for both the mother and her child.

However, even in our highly technological times, the miracle of childbirth remains as sacred and empowering in the life of every woman as it has always been for generations of women since the times immemorial.

To prepare for a successful and easy delivery, a special time is required for a**pregnant woman** to educate herself about what to expect. Some arrangements should be made for increased rest and care, special exercise, positive visualization, a regular dialogue with your unborn, and meditation.

Preparations for uncomplicated childbirth should begin months before the first pains of labour hit on. To avoid unnecessary stress and decrease your chances of delivery complications, follow these 10 tips for having a successful and easy childbirth…

Getting plenty of essential fats and high-quality animal proteins is a factor that will encourage strong and effective labour, since important amino-acids build up muscle stores necessary for a successful delivery.

It is particularly important to ingest adequate amounts of amino-acid l-carnitine from grass-fed red meats and organs, such as beef heart. The need for l-carnitine is increased during the final trimester of pregnancy.

Getting or nor Getting Epidural …

Some obstetricians, such as Dr. Christiane Northrup in her best-selling book Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom, discourage women from applying to a help of epidural anaesthesia during labour and delivery.

Although this issue is controversial, the argument is that both the full-felt sensations and receptive mode are necessary for the most successful uterine functioning during childbirth.

Epidural anaesthesia can completely eliminate the pain of delivery, but it also can prolong labour and trigger some complications, such as maternal fever or the baby turning to a wrong position.

In addition, the use of anaesthesia can prevent the release of the “feel-good” neurotransmitter beta-endorphin, which is a natural anaesthetic produced by the woman’s body during and after the childbirth.

Hi Amanda : Am Bashaier from kuwait ,am expecting my third child soon. you know am not sure if what I will tell you is scientifically correct, yet some of thies tips are really usefull and made my earlier delivaries easier! in my last pregnancy when i didnt deliver fast, as if it was ages since i got pregnant , my aunt adviced me to have sex , i did although i didnt have sex during the whole ninth month and i delivered the very next day . even in my first delivary, it was one day after my first aniversarry , so u can imagine the kind of sex we had :) another advice we always hear, is to walk on the sand! since we had alot of sand in the past, ancient kuwaiti women counted on walking on the sand as an effecient way to deliver easiear, and it was really helpful with many! another strange tip i heard was laying dawn in a tub filled with water and adding some Castor oil, and drinking some ,a woman i heard about used to do this in each pregnany and it was effecient to make her feel labor and deliver the same day. well, that's what i liked to share with u i hope u liked it, and hope it wasnt a long letter and boring one. wish to hear back from u . Yours, Bashaier

Hi Amanda. I'm expecting my first baby in November. I've had a very easy pregnancy thus far. Thing is lately I've been having various problems, especially when trying to sleep. I battle to sleep on my sides as my hips start to cramp up really badly and if I try to lay on my back I battle to breath which is understandable. I also have been suffering with my teeth that have been breaking during my pregnancy, and I've been going through excrutiating pain thus I've been taking grandpa powders(I'm not sure if you know what they are) as its the only thing that relieves the pain. How do I know if I'm causing harm to my baby or not.

my husband and i are at a disagreement on how many. i told him if he can find the most effective NATURAL ways to ease pain he could have 3 (mind u this crazy man wanted 5!!!) i love my husband dearly and im so excited to be a mother but the thought of messing up and making it all last longer not only angers me but scares me. help my husband out? i love kids! just not the pain!!!

HI i am 39 weeks pregnent can some one tell me the best exercise for normal delivery
