I wanted to be able to feel what giving birth felt like without the masking of drugs.
I wanted my baby to be awake when he came out, and not drowsey
I wanted to feel awake myself
I didnt want my baby to be drugged, and tired from those same drugs for his first week being alive.
I wanted my baby to be able to breastfeed right away.
I wanted to feel like I accomplished something not many women had.
I wanted to do this because my mom had done it too
I was extremely scared of getting a needle in my back!
