also if you go natural with no drugs do they let you walk around up until it is time to push for pain?

It varies by hospital. You can check this site out for the certified baby-friendly hospitals/birth centers in the US and what that involves:http://www.babyfriendlyusa.org/eng/03.html The one where I live didn't provide the tubs but you could shower, and as long as you didn't have an epidural you could get up and walk, sit on the ball, in a rocking chair, etc. The only thing I didn't appreciate was the pushing position- I would have preferred to be able to be more upright but they "don't do it that way". None of the other hospitals in my area do either, and the one I go to is actually a Baby Friendly one, so I figured it was the lesser of the evils. My insurance didn't do home births and there aren't any birth centers near here that I know of.
