This is my first (and possibly my only). It's hard for me to think that far ahead as I'm trying to stay grounded and realistic, but I'd really like to have an all natural birth. I've always wanted that, but I also understand that there are a lot of situations that can come up that can change all that. Most of the women in my family have had c-sections for different reasons, so I won't be surprised if that happens.

I've never really used any of the "methods". I had pain meds for only one of my births and the last three were born at home. It seems like all those methods require "coaching" from an outside source.. that totally would not work for me. I don't care if I am in the middle of transition, somebody starts telling me what to do or how to breathe or what to think about- I'm gonna hurt 'em.

For the DD I used Hypnobirthing for the laboring part, but when it came to the pushing part, it went out the window! Didn't expect the pushing to be so hard! We had a NCB in the hospital, my daughter was born in water. The water it'self was a big life saver since it's a natural relaxant.

For this one I can only labor in the water, but I have to get out once we're ready to push. (My new midwife doesn't do water births) I'm assuming that I'll use the hypnobirthing again, and I'll probably take a class so that I can learn more about the pushing part and how to implement the hypnobirthing with that.

With DD my water broke with no contractions so they had me on the highest levels of pitocin. I had no pain meds tho. I wanted to be able to labor in the tub also cuz Ive always been a water loving person...my mom swore I was a fish as a kid....and i couldnt do that since my water broke....but this time I hope I can do this. Im also hoping this one wont take 24 hours lol anything less Id be happy

I'm going to have an epidural. I know you ladies are brave, but I'm a big baby and I don't want to feel a thing! More power to you brave women, but when it comes to pain, my tolerance is very low!

I am another repeat c-section mama. My first c-section was done so quickly and a classical (vertical) incision because I had 24 week twins in distress.. that the OB told me there isnt any option for a VBAC with that type of incision due to risk of rupture. I had my son.. and it was still a pretty special experience, despite it being a surgery. So I am finally okay with it.
