  • I was very open to whatever was avaliable when I was having my daughter (my first one). I took the childbirthing classes so I knew what my options were. I had to be induced with her due to lack of amniotic fluids but I did not have any pain meds at all. When I got pregnant with our son, 3 and a half years later I knew I was going to do it again with no meds. and I did. I'm proud of myself but I feel if someone can't take the pain than if they choose meds than that is their choice. I don't like needles and I was not about to have them stick a huge needle in my back.

  • I had one before we switched to homebirth. It was essential no drugs, no IV, no pain meds, no episiotomy, no strapping me to a bed, don't touch my kid without my husband or I present. No nursery, no bottles, pacis and no circ. No eye goop or shots of any kind. There was more but that is a break down.

  • Well I had a plan to birth naturally with a certified nurse midwife and to do most of my laboring at home. I just found out my baby is breech. We tried to turn her via an external version but she didn't budge one bit . I now have to have a scheduled c-section. It sucks, but I accept the situation as it is. I realize now that we just can't plan these types of things.
