  • Natural is safer and healthier for momma and baby. A cesarean isn't an option unless their is an immediate emergency during labor that requires one.

  • Both of mine were so quick, I did not have time for Meds. One boy was 10lbs 4oz and one boy was 8lbs 9oz. They are now 3 and 6.

  • Pssh yeah I was all about no meds too, than I felt what it was like at about 7 cm and said screw it. The epidural was the best thing ever invented.

  • have you actually researched the drugs used during labor? and their risks? why do you think you are weak? These are all just questions...ALL women (barring medical complications) can have birth naturally. Drugs can inhibit the labor process, and drug your baby.
