Re: pain free labour?
From what I understand, induction makes for very painful contractions. You may want to concider natural inducers (bding, pumping, what else mamas?)
I had a very painless birth (many people don't believe me when I say this). I believe it was due to taking Bradley classes, laboring in the water, my water not breaking or being broken until minutes before he was born & my attitude about birth & "finally" having my first long-a-waited baby!!
