I recently started reading and researching NCB. I've been reading Active Birth by Janet Balaskas, which so far has been amazing. With my son I was immediately hooked up to IV's when I got to the hospital, labored in bed for 15.5 hours, about 12 of which were with an epidural, and ended up getting an episiotomy. I'm looking for a different experience this time.
Here's my question. I was GBS+ with my son. Is it still possible to move around while in labor if you have to be hooked up to an IV? I'm trying to prepare myself for that possibility since it happened with Keith. TIA!!
I was induced for hellp disease with my daughter and walked everywhere I wanted with my IV stand. They had wireless monitoring...req. CFM since I was induced, but I took the monitors off quite a bit anyway because they made me want to cry during contractions.
