I just had my 1st baby on the 22ns of .April and I did it without medical intervention.(.I.E: no epidural or .I.V) I did allow oxygen due to the baby's hearrate started to drop. From experience I would totally recommend going naturally!! If I had a .Midwife to assist me at home, I would've definately done it!!!

Yea, it hurts, but .F.E.E.L.I.N.G that human life come out of you is unlike anything i've ever experienced!!! Not only do you feel the head emerge, but you can feel the feet fall out as well!! I felt it was one of the most bonding experiences ever!!! Plus the pain afterwards wasn't as bad because I was able to feel and cope with it...It didn't slap me in the face once an epidural wore off, ya know?

If you're determined, you can do anything...I just kept hearing all of those people out there who told me I couldn't do it and it gave me the strength to pull through with no drugs!!!

Good .Luck and I wish you all the best with whatever decision you make!! If you have any questions about the labor(like them stitchin you up afterwards), just .P.M me and i'll be happy to share my experience!!!
