Re: FTM natural birth in hospital
I found helpful insight in the book Birthing From Within. I was very glad that I used a midwife associated with the hospital instead of an OB, the two that were on call the day I had my DD were so encouraging and wonderful. One thing I had read and did myself was to labor at home as long as I could. I was concerned that going to the hospital early would result in intervention...in my case when I arrived at the hospital I was complete and ready to push. I couldn't have had an epidural at that point anyways.
