How are you planning on giving birth

Wondering how is everyone planning on giving birth? Normal, normal with pain relief or c-section and is this your first time giving birth?
I would like to have an epidural. My doctor said its best not to have it too early so i can move around and help the baby come down, but also not too late so that the epidural can ease of a little by the time i have to push so that i can feel the contractions.
What do you think, best to feel the contractions when pushing or nothing at all? I hope i can go without gas or any other pain relief cause i still want to be able to think straight, lol.
I’m not really stressed out about the birth, i believe everything will be fine, but i think its best to get enough knowledge to know what to expect.
Not long to go now...
normal with pain relief

This is my first baby and I am planning on going all natural with no pain meds. I have read just about everything I can get my hands on , and have read about as many different techniques as I can find...I feel the more you know the better you can deal with what is happening and allow your body to do what it was made to do

I don't know how to vote so.....
Hoping for a c-section as of my recent hip surgery I can't keep my legs open wide for long.
If not then I am wanting pain relief.
Good luck ladies!!
No matter how u have your baby you get the same result.

i am going to go all natural. this is my first, and i look at it like this women have been having babies for thousands of years, and have only had medicine practices around for a few hundred years. i feel our bodies know what to do and when to do it.

This is my first and I'm all about the epidural! I'm a raging witch when I'm in pain! (have a history of kidney stones and have been told that pain is 10 time worse and I was a total mess) I would like my doctor to stick around to deliver the! I give mad props to the women that give all natural with no pain relief!

I'm a ftm and planning on going all natural, with the option of gas and air if I need it, but I'm really hoping I do not!! But only time will tell. Either way I'm adamant I'm not having an epi, and obviously I can't control if I'd need am emergency c-section but I'm hoping not!! Good luck!!
