1. Your birth will be easier, really.
I was admittedly a little traumatized by my first birth. While it was an incredible experience, I was really nervous to do it again. Everyone reassured me it would be easier the second time, that my body would remember what to do. They were right. It may not have been easy, but it took half the time and pushing took 15 minutes compared to 2.5 hours. Bonus, I didn’t tear. From all the stories I’ve heard, this is definitely the norm, (although I know there are always exceptions).
