You must have tried to imagine what it is like to give birth, how painful it is or how will you feel. Try to focus on the fact that this will be the most wonderful experience of your life: you will give birth to a new life. Do not be afraid of delivery.
The expectant mother
Women who have been consciously preparing their body for giving birth will endure pain much easier and experience the process more positively. The baby’s movements might feel outright unpleasant sometimes as he is getting stronger and he does not have a lot of space in the womb anymore.
His lungs are fully developed now. He only has to amass a little more fat under his skin to be properly insulated. His immune system will continue getting stronger throughout the upcoming weeks. He sleeps through much of the days now and as some researches claim it, he even has dreams.
There are no recommended examinations for this week, but as a part of your mental and physical preparation, you should attend a maternity yoga class.
As a part of our antenatal program, you compile the list of necessary items for the newborn with the infant nurse, and she provides you with practical tips to make sure nothing important is left out. She also gives you advice on breastfeeding.
Even though there are several weeks before you, you should start collecting the necessary documents. If anything is missing, try to get it as soon as you can. You should bring the following documents to the hospital with you when you give birth: prenatal care booklet, ID card, social security card, a marriage certificate not older than three months, or if you are not married with your partner, a declaration of paternity.
