I got stuck at 5/6 cm for hours and had to do spinning babies to get unstuck because of his fetal positioning.

Have you had a doula present during your labors? I think if you really want to try for a natural birth to have that experience then having one would only help you in being successful. My doula deserves a medal for my labor and my husband says we are NOT having a birth without her lol.

I am majorly Type A too and I feel that was a drawback to me progressing quickly. I did have problems with just letting go and going with the contractions. I hope to be better about that next time. Well see.

The mental block for you though may be the fact that you're okay with the epi. I was so set against it that I did everything to avoid it being around me to avoid the possibility. I think if you're okay with it then at least you won't feel guilty if you get it again.
