So this is my fourth and final child. I had very normal and uneventful pregnancies and births with my first 3. I got to an 8 or so on my own with my third before pain meds and I usually go pretty fast anyways. I have been seriously considering a natural birth this time. My mom likes to remind me how painful it is since she had my brother and I both naturally (not on purpose of course). I was just wanting some insight from you ladies about this topic to maybe help me decide. I just wanna get the full effect an all since it is my last child....watta u think??

I think you should go for it!
and in the worst case just ask for an epi if you can't really do it!



i had both my kids without pain med, and to be honest yes it hurts but if i did it twice it can't really be that bad ;)

I had my third in the water after two epidural births... it was by far the best birth experience I had out of three! I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

I would absolutely LOVE to have a water birth but where I live we have very limited options when it comes to that kinda stuff but if I had a choice that would be it hands down.

Go unmediated! I had all three of mine unmediated, it isn't painful. You can do it. Look into hypnobabies.com
