  • I didn't have anything "natural" really. I had a spinal block because I had to get a c-section before I really went into labor, so I can't even say what labor pains are.

    I too admire anyone who goes through labor especially without any pain killers.

  • Natural water births with my babies.

    It sounds like maybe you just aren't familiar with alternatives.

    It's not like natural birthers just sit around and endure like martyrs, lol
    There are MANY coping strategies that women use to reduce/eliminate pain all naturally.
