Yes and no. I did with my first, but they had to turn it off after about 40 minutes so I could feel to push (and it still took 3 hours of pushing). I skipped the epidural with my second and had a baby that was bigger than my first out in 4 pushes without tearing.

I did with my first two. Had pitocin and constant monitoring and was pretty much stuck in bed/ in a chair. So I got the epidurals early.

Baby #3, I had no interventions other than a "rough" cervical check. And hubby started doing acupressure on my heels and I immediately went into labor. I coped by walking, squatting, sitting on the toilet, kneeling, etc. And hubby fanned me with a sketchbook. Labor was about 3.5 hours start to finish. Beautiful and easy, much better than my first two. If we have another, hubby and I will birth at home alone.
