She'll love it :-)
I know a lot think children seeing birth is wrong and traumatising but mine love watching them, I'm honest and tell them exactly what happens, it hurts, when babies come out, they've seen the blood and women screaming (which I don't do myself but I explained why some do)and my eldest who talks about it loads isn't phased at all, it's natural after all, and I'm yet to hear of a child at a hb who's traumatised after it lol. She really can't wait! She's moved on to asking about placentas now lol. Oh which reminds me, there's a book called hello baby which is a childrens book about a hb :-)
Love been on here and been able to talk about hb :-) I normally just stick to my fb groups lol. Xx

Last time I inflated the pool at 38 weeks and kept it in the living room, so I think I'll do the same this time. My last two babies were born at 39 weeks so when I reach that point I'll fill the pool halfway and replace the water every day. I don't want it to be completely empty when I go into labour because my active labours are usually FAST and I don't want to risk not getting it filled up in time!

I hope everyone gets the birth they're hoping for
Lol just seen your sig, your as bad as me for having babies with birthdays close together and close to Xmas! Ha ha. X

thats really cool that she is so interested! My kids will all be home and I was really worried about it tbh especially the youngest two. Max is very sensitive and gets upset easily so I have arranged a baby sitter to show up just in case as I really have no idea how he will react.
We have a room and lounge downstairs that will be used for the kids who don't want to participate if we need a sitter.

Yeh I'm having my mum round and she can watch kids, and I've said to my eldest she doesn't have to stay in the room with me, she can come and go as she pleases as it can take a long time for the baby to arrive, my second will probably be trying to get in the pool all the time, I can just see it now!! I don't mind it if I'm coping well and she's not wanting to jump on me (she's s big boystrus (spelling?)! ) but if not I need someone to take her away from the situation to have an inevitable tantrum over it lol.

I agree, I think it's totally natural and adults seem to be more bothered by seeing birth in my experience than kids. My daughter is just curious about it all!! I showed her that video you recommended and she wants to watch it over and over. It's so sweet, I cried. I can't wait for this baby to come!!! Oh and we have hello baby and love it!! There are a few more home/natural/water birth ones we have too that are great. I also love the Dr. Sears books about pregnancy and taking care of baby. Those are my daughters favorites I think. They are called "what baby needs" and "baby on the way". I love being able up talk about home birth to those who understand too. My family is all freaked out about it!

My son is 2 and i would love him to be around while i was giving birth. My OH is dead against it though so its a no go for us.
Best i can hope for is that he's in bed asleep when it happens and sleeps through, i want him to be the first person other than me and OH to meet his sister.
