This is why I haven't told too many people my birthing plan. My OB is great with the idea, and so is DH, but other than that I don't really talk about it. I do have a surprising ally, which is my mother in law. Back in the day her OB thought that an epidural would hasten labor by helping her to relax. This of course caused her to be stuck in bed and her labor stalled and she said it was well over 24 hours by the time she delivered. When she delivered my sister in law she refused to have an epidural, and her labor was about 5 hours because she was able to move around. So she's been encouraging me to go natural and giving DH some tips to help me
