In choosing your birth plan you have to make an informed decision. I am a big believer in doing as much research as possible, reading and watching as many different medias as possible.
Care of your wound will be demonstrated and explained by a nurse. You may have had a bowel movement- if not, your doctor may prescribe a mild laxative to help you along.

Pain management is done in a number of different ways in hospital Spinal Analgesia This is anaesthetic that is administered in your back and will wear off over 3-4 hours. It sounds worse then it is. Please inform the nurse the moment you start to feel any discomfort...
Today you will be feeling much better, you will be mobilizing well and doing more in the form of taking care of your baby.
