As exciting as pregnancy is, it can also come with its fair share of nerves and anxiety. This is especially true as your due date draws near. If you're nervous about going into labor, taking control and preparing yourself for labor will help immensely. Luckily, there are a few things you can do everyday that'll make your labor easier — and they're all super simple to do.
Granted, you don't have to center your entire life around preparing for labor (who has time for that?) but you can integrate these little things into your daily life to slowly prepare yourself for when the big day arrives.
Chances are you already do a lot of these things already, so adding them to your to-do list won't feel too overwhelming. But they will have a big impact on your labor. From toning your body, to getting your mind in a prepared place, to minimizing stress, each one of these six things will prepare you to go into labor and give you some much needed confidence for the day that will chance your life forever.
Labor is nothing to be terrified of — it's the most natural and beautiful thing in the world — but it can make anyone nervous. Preparing your body and your mind beforehand can ensure that your labor is an empowering and exciting experience.
