Is giving birth scary?

It can be, especially the first time when you have no idea what to expect. It helps to fully embrace the fact that your body knows exactly what to do. I had one hospital birth then a home birth. The home birth was the greatest experience of my life but I know it's not for everyone. Read a lot of positive books. Check out Ina May Gaskin. Her books are the greatest! And remember: Nature works! I wish you all the best! :-)
