C-section or vaginal? C-section
Medicated or unmedicated? Medicated
Induction or any interventions during labor? What didn't I have? Induction with cervadil and pitocin, 2 epidurals, internal fetal and contraction monitors, catheter, water broken...
How long was your labor? I labored for 40 hours before we decided on the c-section
How long did you push?
How was your recovery? I think that as far as C-section recoveries go, mine was pretty easy. I think mostly because I had so much motivation to get up and moving to see Regan in the nursery/nicu. I'm feeling mostly back to normal at 4 weeks out.
If you’re planning more children, is there anything you’d do differently next time? We'll be having at least one more and my plan is to try for a natural VBAC... I'd like almost everything to be different.

C-section or vaginal? vaginal
Medicated or unmedicated? medicated
Induction or any interventions during labor?Had syntocin in the end because my contractions disappeared for a bit but no induction or anything. Almost had to pull out the vacuum but had an episiotomy instead that did the trick.
How long was your labor? about 10 hours total. Spent 3 hours of that at home.
How long did you push? 2 hours
How was your recovery? good. still not 100% healed from my episiotomy but feeling good.
If you’re planning more children, is there anything you’d do differently next time?No not really.

C-section or vaginal? C-section
Medicated or unmedicated? Medicated. Had pain killer not sure name of. Started with a D. Then epi and other for surgery.
Induction or any interventions during labor? Stopped labor and sent for c-section
How long was your labor? about 18 hours
How long did you push? Didn't make it to that point
How was your recovery? Physically not bad. Emotionally I was a wreck and just now starting to feel better.
If you’re planning more children, is there anything you’d do differently next time? Would like to try vaginally next time, want to experience the feeling of needing to push. But if have same issues as this one will probably just end up with another section.

C-section or vaginal? Vaginal
Medicated or unmedicated? Unmedicated homebirth
Induction or any interventions during labor? No induction. No medical interventions, although we did have a few issues. Had a swollen cervical lip that my MW shoved two ice cubes up my vag for.
How long was your labor? 24 hrs from first painful cx to delivery.
How long did you push? Just a few mins, 3 pushes, I think??
How was your recovery? I had SPD for a few weeks after, but healing from my tear has gone very well.
If you’re planning more children, is there anything you’d do differently next time? Not really planning on having more, but if God sees fit to bless us again, I will definitely be doing another homebirth!

Induction or any interventions during labor? required hep-lock in case of excessive postpartum bleeding, but it didn't become necessary.

If you’re planning more children, is there anything you’d do differently next time? We're two and through, I'm afraid, but NO. This was perfect.
