How can I prepare for my baby's birth during week 35 of pregnancy?

Week 35 is a perfect time to start preparing for the delivery day, because you still have time to organize before the big day. There are several ways you can prepare for the arrival of your baby. Discuss your plans for delivery day with your doctor, partner, and family members. Make sure everyone knows your preferences about pain management methods and where you want your newborn to be after delivery. Remember to answer questions about delivery room procedures early, such as who you want with you, who can cut the umbilical cord, and if your partner should video tape it. You can even discuss plans for who will take care of your things while you are at the hospital and which pediatrician you want your newborn to see. You can also prepare by practicing relaxation techniques to ease the tension on your body and prepare it for delivery.
