I also had unmedicated, natural, births with both my boys...born in a hospital, though. I had a doula with my second son's birth.

Do you mind if I ask who your midwife was since you are in TX too?
Chris Duffy http://www.myhealthfreedom.com/cms/index.php?id=59, she was the only midwife in Houston to take me

Re: POLL: What kind of birth/births did you have?

I had an emergency cs with ds. To tell the shortest version, everything started beautifully, I went into labor on my own and handled it well. I had been in labor for 38 hours ( it didn't feel that long) and Ds started having some major decelerations at 7 cm so my ob made the call for an ecs. We left my hospital room @ 11 and he was out at 11:07. there is nothing more terrifying than seeing panic on your doctors face
I plan for our next to be an unmedicated vbac w/ a midwife

Re: POLL: What kind of birth/births did you have?

My first was born natural (though I didn't plan it that way, I had 2 epi's that didn't take) in the hospital with a CNM.

My 2nd & 3rd were born in the hospital with epi's and also with CNM's.

My 4th will also be born in the hospital (secretly hoping for a UC) but this time with an OB because our insurance doesn't cover CNM's anymore.
Hoping to go natural this time but we'll see

Re: POLL: What kind of birth/births did you have?

DD#1 was emergency section after 14 hours of labor and not progressing past two cm. Baby heart rate dropping. Beautiful baby girl at 7 lbs. 15 oz. 22 inches long.

DD#2 was both emergency and planned section (the other please explain vote). I was hoping for a VBAC. Went in for appt. the day after my due date and was told I was not moving and probably wouldn't so we scheduled the section for the next morning. (as a side note: I was in labor when I went to the hospital, water had broke and was at 6 cm. by the time they delivered her) So much for their not going anywhere. But they said with my pelvic shape and her size and weight I probably would not have delivered anyway. So beautiful baby girl 9 lbs. 10 oz. 20.5 inches long.

Next one will be planned section and I will be knocked out due to complications from anesthesia present in both deliveries.

Re: POLL: What kind of birth/births did you have?

Our goal was an unmedicated birth in the hospital with our mid-wife, little man had other plans!
-1am, my H2O broke but no contractions
-9am, started Pit. drip- lots of contractions
-5pm, finally asked for an epi,- got it at 6pm (5cm)
-10pm, 10cm- let's start pushing!
-2:30am, no progression, complete exhaustsion, decision time
-4:07am, DS born via C-Section

Yep, 27 hours of labor, 4+ hours of pushing, 1 incredible little man!
