Curious as well. I want to have my baby naturally and wondering what others experiences have been.
My natural births were super easy. No tearing or stitches. I have a fairly high tolerance for pain though. Not always the case for others.
I went natural with my first and will be doing it again with this pregnancy. Had no problems at all. I almost have up multiple of times but thanks for my mil and my husband, they talked me through it. They helped me believe in myself that I could do it without medication.
I think all natural births are way healthier for you and you baby. This is my third pregnancy. I had my first with epidural and my second without. My first delivery was much longer and although the epidural eased the pain I still felt some of it. I had my daughter naturally and I pushed her out with three pushes. I didn't rip my baby didn't have any withdrawals from the medicine and I plan on having this baby the same way. Good luck!
I had my son with no meds. I was in labor for 32.5 hours. Got epidural with my daughter and labor was 12 hours. I was told that my body wouldn't dialate with my son bc I couldn't relax bc of the pain. I have 7 weeks 1 day til I get induced with my second daughter and I am gonna get an epidural. Natural one time was enough for me lol
I had my first son naturally everything went great and only received one stitch and he came out to be 8.8 and this time around I want to do another natural birth.
Ive never done natural but with my son i made it to 5 cm dialatd got the epidul within an hour i was at 10 and told me to push and felt bo pai just pressure like they told me i would
I Used Epidural with My first son & I didn't have any problems at all! But afterwards Its True That It Gives Us Back pain I Just didn't Know If I should Use It Again.. still Guessing I don't Know Yet
