Hi ladies, I am a first time mummy and I thought I would share a few of my concerns about going into labour - do you have the same concerns or any others?? Hoping also some other mummies can shed some light on some of these concerns as they have been there before and may have some understanding of how they treat these situations etc? Here are a few things that have me a little worried: Worried about cord being wrapped around her neck, even though it does happen a lot, if she came out not breathing well I would just freak out I think, it would be so touch and go not knowing what is happening. Worried about her opening her bowels before she is born and having her breathe meconium, I know that it can affect their breathing and cause infection. Worried about her becoming distressed during labour and her heart rate dropping - do they monitor your babies heart rate while you are in active labour or is it just when you are having contractions before you are ready to deliver?
