  • With my first, yes, an unmedicated vaginal birth in a hospital. With my second I was a huge failure to my own convictions and was pressured into an epidural I didn't want, it was a vaginal birth, in a hospital. My last was a wonderful unmedicated water birth, in a free standing birth center.

  • Yes. I had a water birth at home. It wasn't miserable. I did hypnobirthing for comfort. I did get really hungry though.

  • I had an all natural waterbirth it was the best decision I made. I wanted to experience all the feelings that came with childbirth.

  • Yes and yes. I had an unmedicated birth in a hospital. A good place to start if you're considering it, is the film "The Business of Being Born." From there there are tons of amazing resources about taking charge of your birthing process.

  • I wanted a drug free birth...it did NOT happen though...she came early and there were too many complications to avoid it. life rarely goes as planned. :)
