the hospital im attending is low risk and run more like a birthing centre. they are pro natural and have a few beautiful birthing baths.
i am really wanting to go in with a good mind set and be able to stay in control and not feel like i want the drugs.
with my ds1 i was induced and my labour was extremely full on and intense, my contractions were back to back for 5 hours and i asked for an epidural as i thought i couldnt take it any more. i went from 4cms to 10cms in an hour and before i got the epidural i was pushing... so in then end i actually managed to do it all drug free. im hoping that this time i wont be induced and therefor my labour will be more maneagable.
going in though i can have all the best laid plans and i no when im experiencing the pain my mindset may change so im wanting to know what u did to prepare for a drug free birth, what did u use during labour, what worked well, or what would u do different next time???????
