Many expecting mothers I’ve taught or worked with as a doula or childbirth educator have expressed some fear or anxiety as they approach their due date and anticipate childbirth. While this is common, it still breaks my heart because birth can be a beautiful experience no matter how you give birth.

Educating yourself is the best way to reduce your fear and anxiety about labor and delivery. It’s good to talk about what you can potentially expect so the unknown becomes more familiar and less scary. This is why we are thrilled to have Liesel Teen, a mom, wife, labor and delivery nurse from Raleigh, North Carolina, and the owner of Mommy Labor Nurse, with us today to talk about what you may expect when you go to the hospital in labor.
