When I went into the hospital to have Joshua, I was physically picked up and put in bed as I was trying to get on all fours to cope with labor pain. I had to do things how they wanted me to. Ihad tested gbs positive and my dr told me I had to get to the hospital asap to get antibiotics because the condition could kill the baby. Stupid me, I did no research so I got to the hospital asap. I ended up getting an epidural because I couldn't handle it anymore.

I had toyed with the idea of homebirth but that put the nail in the proverbial coffin. I did not want that happening again. With my 2nd and 3rd births I had waited as long as I could to go in so my natural births happened.

More of my reasons were::
I wanted my other kids there
If I wanted a housefull of people, I could do it
I didn't want all the pointless pregnancy testing
I didn't want to be strapped down
I didn't want any kind of intervention and with my labor stalling this time, I can bet my life they would have done something to get it moving
I didn't want my baby messed with
I was tired of it becoming some kind of medical thing!
