  • In general, spontaneous vaginal birth with no pain meds.

    If I'm talking to other homebirthers or UCers, I might use the phrase in a different way. But that's a pretty specific crowd. ;-)

  • Natural childbirth to me is having a baby vaginally with no medications.I am not brave enough to do it at home alone though, I think it would actually be great, but my boyfriend thinks I am crazy...
