How many of you Mommies gave birth with no pain medication? What was your strategy? Any tips, or little tricks? This is my second time around, and I would like to try to do it that way this time.

I went without any pain meds for all 5. It's simple just keep saying this will be over soon. Listen to your body don't fight the contractions. go with them and above all else breathe. yes the two short breathes with on long one does work when the pain gets bad. I even used that technique when after my hip surgery I had gotten an infection in the incision site and the Doctor pokes right through to clean it up and get swab for the lab. It helped me keep control of the pain and from passing out. Now that was painful.

Yep, I had a drug free birth, no IV, no nothing.
My strategy was, well, just do it like it's been done for centuries - go through the pain, live it, and then it will all go away when you see your little baby, and sure enough - it was agony, and extreme - but as soon as I saw my baby I knew it was worth it, and I will do it again with my next little one who is due in October.

I didn't have an epi for my second. It wasn't by choice though. I arrived too late for one, lol. The pain was horrid, but thankfully my son came out VERY QUICKLY!!
