Pregnant with a big baby
We hear it lots of times. You’re going in, all happy and excited, for the last ultrasound and the doctor tells you that you are pregnant with a big baby. Fear for the delivery starts and you start second guessing yourself if you really are capable of giving birth to this baby. Let me tell you one thing. Women in general, but most of all, you who is reading this and beautifully pregnant, you are capable of giving birth. We have been bringing baby’s into this world for many many many years without any problems!!!
What is in this society today that we’ve lost our faith and trust in our own body’s and capabilities? Doubting ourselves? One of the great disadvantages is our wonderful media. Shows about women giving birth, screaming, isn’t helping. Other women that have had a terrible birth experience and trying to break your wonderful beautiful bubble, isn’t helping either.
So where can you get the reinforcement you need? That you are able to birth your baby, that you are capable of giving birth? That we are built to bring births to a beautiful end and most of all that we are able to birth our baby’s natural without “having to be saved”……
An educated pregnant mom is as valuable as gold or platinum. Research everything what might be said to you. Ask questions. Ask for articles that back up what the doctor is telling you….. but under no means….. just believe what they are telling you.
What if I tell you that ultrasounds are on average wrong about baby’s birth weight between 500 and 1000 grams ? How does that relate to “carrying a big baby”?
