You are 100% right, you can do it too! You're a woman so of course you're more than capable of doing it.

Well, we have a really good subforum here that give you tons of studies and incidents why a person could consider to do it without any help.. I hope that is a great start for you. Hopefully we can give you more information as you need.

Most people consider an unnatural birth to be a medicated one, just so you know.

There are many cons of a medicated labor. The saddest part IMO is that once you have one intervention (such as an Epi) you open yourself up to so many more (like vacuums or forceps or even c-section). You are much more likely to end in a c-section if you choose to medicate during labor than if you go natural. If you are induced or if you have pain relief meds you will be required to stay on a fetal monitoring system most, if not all of the time which means you won't be able to get out of bed or change positions easily (which can slow or stop your labor, btw). Also, any medication you choose during labor crosses the placenta and can have an effect on your baby.

There are plenty of other reasons to go without meds but my baby just woke up.

I hope that was helpful.

Ditto!! Thankfully, even though I was induced w/ my DD, my labor progressed quickly and I didn't have to have a ton of interventions (though I was not fond of the catheter -- that's for sure!!).
