Is she going to ante-natal classes? I'm not a mum or anything, it just seems that by 7 and a half months she should have been recieving support, including guidance on what to expect before the birth.
I would also suggest she reads up on it. I'm sure some of the wonderful mother's around here will have some recommended books for her, as well as their personal experiences.

y'know... this is a great opportunity to go to the library, and get a book on pregnancy/labour.

When i was pregnant, it put me at so much ease just KNOWING what to expect during labour.

I or some of the other moms could post at length about labour and delivery - but you'd get a lot more information from a book.

take care!

Ditto what Nancy said about going to a library.

For learning about pregnancy and childbirth, I'm a big fan of Dr. William Sears. My favorite pregnancy/labor books are The Birth Bookand The Pregnancy Book by William and Martha Sears. The Birth Book was especially helpful -- it covered all types of childbirth situation, not just hospital births, and it covered all types of pain management, not just drugs and epidurals.

A good website for her to try would be http://www.askdrsears.com, especially the pregnancy section.

even still, the best place to find this info is from books.

I don't even see the difference between wanting to know, and wondering what to expect?

i'm not trying to be nasty or anything... I experienced some freakish thing after i'd given birth, and seriously i'd forgotten how awful it was. Realistically i KNOW it was painful, tiring and hard - but afterward all you can think about is how fantastic your baby is... and what a miracle life really is...

anyhow, i still think it's a really good idea to take a trip to the library.

I recommend the book 'birthing from within' the author's name escapes me right now... I thought it was fabulous

you and your friend take care, now!

Your response was inappropriate. If you do not have anything contstructive to say, please don't post, as you're only wasting bandwidth, which wastes time and money in the long run.
