First Pregnancy: How Not To Freak Out During Your Hospital Tour

First pregnancy. There's nothing like it. Everything changes and life will never ever be the same. During the first five to six month of pregnancy, you don't think about the delivery part of the whole process too much. You figure--there's still lots of time to figure it all out, and it's not time to worry about it yet. There is a great fear of the unknown--you have never experienced it before, so it is every possible feeling mixed together--fear, anxiety, excitement, happiness and anticipation of the coming of the new baby. It is the biggest emotional roller coaster you have ever been on, one day you are the happiest in the world and the very next day you could be totally down.

Looking forward to and anticipating to the delivery of the baby is normal, and after the first few months, it is time to start planning everything out--sign up for some labor and breastfeeding classes, find your support circle and pick out which hospital the delivery will be taking place at. Most of the time, when a hospital is picked, you should go there and pre-register all your information there, such as name, address, your baby's estimated due date, and all the necessary insurance information. If any information changes, you should notify them right away so you don't have to go through paperwork when you are there for the actual delivery and probably in pain or discomfort. After you register at the hospital, most hospitals do offer tours of the facility so you and your partner or parents--whoever will be there with you during the delivery--can get acquainted with the facility and where everything is. The worst thing would be to arrive there ready for the delivery and get confused and not know where to go! You can find out details about where to park and how much it costs, how do the visitation hours work and what are the limits of the amount of people in the delivery room and afterwards. Sounds like a routine simple thing to do, right?

Well, for me that was not the case. We went there when I was about seven months, not too early and not too late, and I was excited to go, I figured it would just be a quick tour to see where the rooms are and what they look like. Before that, I didn't really give delivery a whole lot of thought, I still kept on thinking I have a lot of time. In other words, yes, I was in denial about what is going to happen to me within a couple of months. I have to say that the hospital tour changed everything for me regarding delivery and provided a harsh reality check--yes, this is happening to you! So face it and get ready.

It's important to always visualize a smooth and beautiful delivery process in your mind, and not let fear or any negative thoughts about any problems or complications even bother you at all. Yes, it is unlike anything you have ever experienced, but there is absolutely no need to freak out or waste your time worrying about it or being scared. That is the mistake I made, and just going into the hospital and checking everything out and looking around scared the life out of me, all I kept on thinking was--Wow, is this really happening to me? Seeing the women wheeled out with their tiny newborn babies in a car seat is exciting, but I also couldn't help but notice the pain and extreme fatigue on some of their faces, and I kept on thinking--What is it like? How bad was it? What is this whole thing going to feel like to me? Can I do it? And the delivery room itself, which is a pretty small, simple room with a small bed in the middle of it, and bathroom and a couple chairs--that was what made my heart drop. Having an extremely low pain tolerance, just the idea of laying there and going through the worst pain in the world made me dizzy. However, delivery fears are totally normal and natural and can be easily conquered. As mentioned earlier, positive visualization is key, for example, picturing a beautiful baby smoothly coming out of an opening flower, thoughts like that will keep your mindset calm and balanced. Think about it this way--we were born to have children so it is completely natural and wonderful. Millions have gone through it before you, so you can do it! Our parents and grandparents didn't have the same access to technology and drugs as they do today, so it will be easier for you than it was for them. So while the hospital tour can be the first reality check that this is really going to happen to you directly and it will be happening soon, there's totally no need to start worrying and get really scared about the delivery process, it is natural, and the doctors and nurses do everything to make it easy and comfortable for you. And after first seeing that baby boy or baby girl, you will completely forget about any of the pain or suffering that took place during the delivery process. Stay strong and good luck with it!
