A question about labor...

I'm thinking of having a drug free birth and was wondering what you guys all had to say about it?

I've done my research and I feel most comfortable with at least trying my best to not have any help with pain but leaving myself open to the option,of course,if I do change my mind..

Also,in what position did you give birth? I was thinking of trying standing up or on all 4..


*thanks for all the well wishes everyone!*

I only went drug free with one and it was not my choice. He just came too quickly. 

I was laying on my back because for me, that was most comfortable. 

You could always try the shots they give to help ease the pain. If I could do the oldest and youngest birth over again, I would have skipped the epi and went with the shots.

You can do it! Our bodies were made to do it! It hurts like hell, and if you have a stupid nurse that keeps telling you that you can get the epidural at any time, you may be tempted to give in. I have birth to both kids laying on my back.

Drug free labor wasn't for me. I was at a 45* angle basically and with every contraction I'd pull my knees forward. Only pushed for 20 mins with both. Easy peasy and they say it goes faster without and epi because you can feel the muscles you're pushing with, where as you have to really work at it with the epi

My 1st I had something in my I.V. and hated it. My 2nd was drug free. I was on my back with both. If I had ever had a 3rd it would have been drug free as well.

I tried a labor ball. But started having really bad back labor so I gave into the drugs. Still upset about it.
