  • OOOH that's easy since I've never done it!!!!
    Natural unless I need help.
    It has recently occured to me that HOW the kid exits the pod and begins living in this great big world may not be all that important, so long as he makes it safe and sound.

  • well i have no idea why anyone would prefer a c-section, but to each their own i guess.

    id rather have a vaginal birth, but with the epidural. so i guess non-natural since natural means no interventions.

  • Natural with no drugs, no epidural and no hooking me to all those machines. Even better would be an all-natural birth at home.

  • Honestly, after the back labor with my last one I might opt for a c-section.

  • Somewhere in between.... I had an epidural with my first, and actually ended up with a c-section after about 30-something hours of labor (his giant head was turned sideways, he just wasn't going to come out any other way). I'm currently 33 weeks with my second, and I'm going for a VBAC. I do NOT want the epidural this time, because I want to be able to move around during labor, but I'm not against other kinds of pain medication. So yeah, I'm somewhere in the middle.
