How many kids do you have and how did you deliver them?

Just curious- How many kids do you have and how did you deliver them?

I know we all try to be natural but we didn't all have homebirths.

I have 2 kids and had medicated hospital births with both.

If I were to have another baby I would try for a homebirth or at least an unmedicated hospital delivery.

I have one dd. I labored almost 45hrs with her, unmedicated, most of that time was at home, and ended up with an (true) emergency csection.

I have 1 and the Dr said he thinks I'm too little to push a baby out (small birth canal, my aunt had one and my cousin got stuck, not sure if can be from the genes from my grandparents passed to me or what) or my baby was just too big and if he had been a smaller baby I would have been able too. I ended up with a csection.

Oh no. I am so sorry. What happened that you needed a c-section?

 100% natural hospital birth, No medical interventions of any kind. Next one(ttc) will probably be a home birth...I really really want a waterbirth.

Could it be the way she was made to push? I've read that many woman have issues with delivery flat on their backs. It actually makes your canal small and odd shaped.

One kid - Hospital birth induced by AROM due to pre e.  had no pitocin or epi though so I was as natural as I could be in my circumstance.

That is awesome! Did you have issues with the hospital pushing meds or interventions on you?
