This last week is probably passing by incredibly slowly, but know that you are almost there! Try not to focus on a day, only five percent of babies are born on their due date, so if you baby doesn’t arrive ‘on time’ it doesn’t mean you are ‘overdue’. Your baby is perfectly happy in his home; bidding is time, even though things are getting a bit cramped. Be proud that you have provided such a wondering, nurturing environment, even if he is in no hurry to leave. In these last few days, take it easy, and try to make the most of this special time. You are so close, and your new exciting life is about to begin.
Congratulations and good luck!
If baby still hasn't arrive after your due date and you want to start things rolling you're probably wondering which methods may actually work and which ones are myth?
Shortly after baby has emerged into the world, he will undergo a flurry of tests to make sure everything is okay. This might be a little overwhelming so here's what you need to know.
Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom. – Harriette Hartigan
