I went for my first prenatal appt yesterday and was talking with the Dr about NCB and asking questions to see his feelings on the subject. I think he had good responses. He said he is all for using the tubs for pain releif and for the woman being able to move around while in labor. He said the women the he sees that are successful in NCB have done their research and know what to expect during L&D.

He also told me that a epidural may not work for me since my spine is fused at L5-S1. I have been doing some research on it and it seems a lot of anesthesiologists won't perform an epi on someone with a spinal fusion. I even read that if there is an infection there is a chance they would have to go in and take the rods and screws out of my back.....ahhhhh no way am I even going to have a 1% chance of that happening! Bradley classes here I come!

Glad you have a supportive Dr.

What happened to your back? DH's L5 is messed up from a motorcycle accident in 08

Bad back run in the family. In the spine the bones interlock and that is how they stay in place, in my back the bones that interlocked were cracked (My brother has a similar problem) which let one of my vertebrate slip towards my stomach. This herniated a disc that pressed on my S1 nerve. After trying exercise, chiropractor and PT and also a steroid injection the pain just kept getting worse so I opted for surgery and haven't had a problem since!
