In brief: Information

Find out what makes you uncomfortable about giving birth and concentrate on those aspects.
Are you concerned about pain control? Talk to the anesthesiologist at the hospital. Maybe tour labor and delivery before you deliver to see the rooms and meet some of the nurses. Making yourself familar with the environment may ease some anxiety. Attending birth classes may also help.
