You will be sorry for not having the epidural. At least I was. The pain was unbelievable. I wasn't sorry once I had my babies. I knew that I didn't want any pain meds so I sat my butt at home until there was no possibility of getting any anymore. I don't have any great techniques to share, none of what everyone kept suggesting for pain management worked for me. Not everyones labor is going to be someone elses idea of "perfect". My hair was a mess, I screamed like a wild banshee, and I thought to myself that I was a complete idiot for not getting pain meds. And then it was over. The baby was here. The relief is so tremendous and you are so overcome with joy I SWEAR to you, you will not regret it.

Oh, and I am pregnant with my 4th. This will be my 4th natural childbirth. Again, I will scream out for God to "take me now", I will think that I am a complete idiot for not getting pain meds. But then, it will be over. One of the main things that I suggest is to birth however you freaking feel like it. There is no "right" way to deal with pain. With my first born I was so overcome with a need to "do good" that I couldn't focus on anything else. Everyones pain tolerance is different. If you feel like screaming then freaking scream. Don't worry about what you look like, don't worry about what anyone else thinks about you, do it your way. The accomplishment of not having pain meds is HUGE. You will gain a new awareness of what you can do. How strong you are. It's amazing.

Um excuse me but I've had 3 natural childbirths. I never said that she SHOULDN'T have a natural childbirth, I was stating my own experience which is what she ASKED for. Read my entire post before you run your fingers.
