Re: hoping to have a natural birth...what materials should I look into?
well i had a friend tell me to deny u r in labor for as long as you can... yes there is a point of not getting drugs/ going back... so dont let someone tell you that u can have epi any time. my ob finished dialati8ng my last 3 cm manually & as long as no back labor you should be good. i had an awesome nurse as my mom was watching our 21 month & couldnt be there saying u can do it as well as my ob.. although my ob saw me a bit mad & all...no swear words though... no time between pushing & alll... maybe next time i could try to sneak those words in....just keep telling urself u cfan do it like the engine that could. women have been having babies for a long time without drugs so i figured maybe i could too & i did & it was my biggest baby yet at 9lbs. im 5 '1 by the way....dont forget to breathe.lamaze never told me about back labor which is excrutiating... so dont believe lamaze when they say contractions travel around ur belly... mine were i like cramps both of the last 2 times and in small of my back in a bigger area its bearable but once in my spine i need help like in back labor.
not that i think i want to do home birth as my hubby would need to learn a bit more on how t9o help our ob said....
