How many moms gave birth natural i did i was going to get the epidural but decided not to it was painful but my delivery was fast and i got back on my feet alot faster. lost of people i know who has gotten pain medication took longer to give birth and took longer to heal..is that true? when i do have another baby i plan on going natural again.

I was induced with my oldest and had her without any pain medication, no epidural.. It hurt like hell. 15 hour labor almost 3 hours of pushing. I will never be induced again. 

My youngest was born c-section thanks to OB and nurses scare tactics. The recovery time after my youngest  was born was A LOT faster than with my oldest. But laying on the table to be cut open was less stressful than baring down to push a baby out for 3 hours. 

If we get pregnant again, I'm going VBAC and I want a water birth this time dang it. (and no pain meds/epidural)

yeah either am i i would rather do with out pain pills...yeah and im not sure but most likely if you had 2 c-sections then if you were to get pregnate again the doc might just go ahead and set you up for a c section but i could be wrong "/

I gave birth vaginally, with no medical intervention at all both times and I will do the same this time. The only reason I would ever consider any form of medical intervention is if my life or babies is in danger.

I was terrified and had a horrible experience that was traumatizing lol. and Im due November 21 if I have a vbac or November 14 if I decide to just get a c section.
