  • I'm also planning an unassisted waterbirth this time. My last would have been a water birth but for some reason I was just more comfy in my bed.

  • I DID!!!
    it was amazing. I was in labor for 9 hours and I was falling asleep between contractions.
    When I knew it was time to push I did and I delivered my baby girl by myself.

    The bonding I felt was incredible and I was so ((well, still am)) proud of myself for having a drug free birth!
    My daughter is happy and healthy. She is always smiling and seems so content with the world.

    I would recomend having a waterbirth to ANYONE!
    Congrats on the little one and Good Luck!! =]
