im not sure i could do a natural birth. help??
We are not planning another baby for awhile but i needed some advice.
its been a family trend that our water always breaks first. i know its not common but all 3 of my moms water broke first and my granma all 4 births water broke first, same with my great grandma's 5 births. my water broke first at 4am and i was in labor for 14 hours and pushed for 3 hours. would it be safe for me to do a natural birth? i would love to do a natural birth! i had an epidural with my DD and it didnt work to its full ability, i believe, it never relieved the pain on both sides it was either one side or the other and i felt everything in the end, and i believe it caused some problems for my DD right after she was born she had a fever and they thought she had an infection as well.
so would it be safe for me to do a natural birth since my water will break first? and any advice you have would be so great as well! Thanks ladies!
