I had planned on a natural birth at home however my husband just wasn't comfortable with me being at home and so in the end I was happy to go to hospital and I had plans for a natural birth there.
This was baby #2 for me, and basically it was awesome. Went into labour at 3.30am and contractions were 5m apart, left to go to the hospital at 5 as I felt that things were progressing quite quickly. I got to the hospital and the MW checked me over I was 4.5cm dilated so the mw told me that she thought it would be a bit of time yet, this was about 6am. At 7 am I had a sensation to push and a few minutes later at 7.07am I gave birth to my daughter Olivia.
I have to say I was panicking a little because it was pretty intense as it moved so fast but it truly was a wonderful experience. I had no pain control and no tearing, and have been up and about every day since the birth. I could not have asked for anything better.
