What kind of birth do we want to have?
For obvious reasons, this is essentially a one-way conversation. The one with the baby in her belly gets to decide how she wants to deliver it. Still, it’s vital to share your plan with your partner so you both know that you’ll be welcoming your bundle of joy in an inflatable bathtub in your living room. And even if you aren’t planning a home water birth, the last thing you want is to be in the throes of a contraction and to have your partner pushing you to get an epidural when you really wanted to try to do things naturally.
