Hi. I'm new to this natural birth idea.... I'm 32 weeks along with my first, and until a few weeks ago thought that I'd just get an epidural and be good to go. But now the more things I read and learn, the more frightnend I am by an epidural! I'm also terrified (always have been) of a c-section and know that I want to do everything in my power NOT to have one.
Anyways, everyone I tell my new plan of a natural / non epidural birth to I get a "your crazy" look and talk. I don't get it! Is it really all that bad? I have a very high pain tolerance anyways, and feel like this is something I need to do for me, and plus like I said an epidural scares the crap out of me. Even my husband isn't sure I'm making the right decision. How do I convince people especially my husband that this is the best route?
Also, I know many people of here are against inducing, but there is a possibility that I will have to induce... anyways, is it possible to be induced and still have a Natural birth? or a CLOSE to natural birth?
