Congratulations on your soon-to-be birth of your daughter. I operate a natural wellness company that utilizes gentle, safe nature-based support to assist any challenge A to Z. I work with flower essences, which are made by infusing flowers or other plant parts in spring water and then adding alcohol as a preservative. If the alcohol is an issue for you, you can add the essences to hot water to evaporate it. The essences are used internally or topically to balance emotional states. Flower Essences go to the core issue of the emotional upset. One’s feelings, perception, and outlook about a situation, themselves and others can be effortlessly reversed to positive. There are a number of flower essence options I can suggest, if you are interested, please feel free to email me, Nicole@WholeCreations.com.
p.s. you may find this option as a support for you http://www.wholecreations.com/birthprofessionalprods.html.

My son wanted to be a the delivery of one of his siblings. He was 8 at the time. When I started to get to transition he ran out of the room. We had family that watched him for us. But he said later it was hard for him to see me in pain. Although I'm not loud in labor, he obviously sensed my discomfort. But it was cute he helped me breathe through some of my contracitons. He's 13 now and I think it would be a much better experience for him. I think it's wonderful that you are including your son. But I would keep educating him and showing real births. So it won't be a shock. Maybe have him up by your head/ shoulders. So he might not see all the blood/ect.
