  • Unplanned c-sect (wish I 'd tried harder to avoid it, I think Dr was in a hurry more than it was needed)
    VBAC 100% natural, no meds. If I were to do it again I'd go natural!

  • All natural and not by choice. My labors were too fast for meds. I would never choose an epidural.

  • Oh I totally had an epidural. I have no threshold for pain, plus it has NO BAD EFFECTS on the baby whatsoever at all. As soon as I learned I had to be induced, I was asking for it. I know myself, and I know I wouldn't be able to handle the pain. I don't need to be a hero, I just need to do my job and bring the baby into this world the best way I can, and to do that I needed pain meds. But once I got the epidural, I slept SO good lol.
