Here are some things you shouldn’t do before a normal delivery:
1. Don’t listen to bad experiences during normal delivery
Listening to other people’s bad experiences of childbirth will make you suspect and think negatively about childbirth. If for those of you who are entering the first labor this will increase your anxiety and make you nervous about facing a normal delivery.

2. Don’t forget the role of your husband
During normal delivery you need a lot of support from your partner. The normal delivery that you will face requires physical and psychological preparedness. For those of you who are still experiencing anxiety, fear and even worry of being next to your husband who is on standby, it makes you feel more comfortable to face normal childbirth. In addition, for those of you who expect the presence of your husband beside you during the labor process and he is unable to attend due to several tasks outside the city or some other things. You can get support from your family, such as mother and mother-in-law. Environmental conditions that help you in dealing with childbirth, including the presence of people who really love you, will help you reduce anxiety before normal delivery.
3. It is not easy to give up
Some of the bad input you receive going into your labor stops you from having a normal delivery. Fear and anxiety like that are natural, managing well ahead of labor makes you comfortable. It is also important that you know that the people closest to you will accompany you. Prepare yourself mentally by always doing activities that support normal childbirth such as pregnancy exercises or classes for pregnant women, then accompanied by prayers to prepare you mentally. Prayers for pregnant women will help you in preparing for a normal delivery.
4. Minor things that are common during normal delivery
You suddenly feel insecure and become anxious because when you enter labor you suddenly have a bowel movement. Even though it is embarrassing for you, it is normal to happen during your normal delivery. You stay focused and let your discomfort pass by refocusing on preparing energy for labor.
