See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Provided that your labor is progressing normally. Just how much control does the hospital give you? Or do you get snow-plowed by hospital procedure. What's within your rights as a laboring mother? Can you refuse the IV and monitoring in favor of being able to move around? I'm genuinely curious about this. (I had my first son in the hospital and felt like a medical experiment. I don't want to do that again. But I also don't want a home birth.)
