When I was pregnant with my son, we chose not to do regular ultrasounds and other prenatal testing. This choice was met by surprise from many women, who assumed that an ultrasound/testing was essential for their information, “peace of mind,” and bonding with their unborn baby. I am not writing this to offend, but hope that in sharing my experiences, it will encourage you to find joy in the simple, traditional pursuits of natural pregnancy.
I personally believe that ultrasounds or other tests should be used with discretion as a tool, not a “toy.” But there are some simple, natural ways to bond with your baby as well as avoid “surprises” during labor/birth! Bonding with your child before their birth can easily be done with some “hands-on” methods, without the “invasiveness” of technology…
See you there!
