I had an all natural birth at home.

Pushing contractions felt good to me and didn't hurt at all... I did feel myself tearing, strangely enough I had no tears on the perineum, just up the front.... OUCH..... and afterwards was WAY worse than the labor because of all the prying the midwife had to do to locate and stop my ruptured artery.

But all in all it wasn't the nightmare I was expecting.

I sooo wish I could have a birth center birth or even a home birth but I probably won't ever get to because I have Type I (juvenile) diabetes
