Another thing I didn't really see in your stories was mention of a support person (husband, mother, close friend, doula...). You said your nurse was trained in natural birthing techniques, but did you have a support person with you? Someone you really trust and really knows you? My support person was crucial to me having a natural birth. My husband watched me the entire time, looking for clues that I was tensing up. He was in my face when I needed him to be, reminding me to breath and breathing with me. I trust him 100% and knew he would keep me going through labor. I honestly believe it was this that allowed me to birth naturally.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my super cute siggy!
