I used a birth ball, blowing the pain away with breathing, laboring in the tub, counter pressure during contractions and having the emotional support of my birth team (DH, Mom and midwives). I had three hospital births where I got an epidural at around 5-6cm. I was amazed that during my home birth the contractions didn't start to get really painful until I was 8-9 and clearly in transition. I loved that my midwife was so skilled, she knew what I needed before I even did.
