In the UK we have different pain relief options. With DD I used the pool and had gas and air only and found that adequate. Unfortunately I had a third degree tear so had to have surgery a couple of hours later, they sited a spinal for that. I hated it.
I've seem my consultant as they offer an elective section to ladies with severe tears here, and I've declined it. Im now back to MW led care and aiming for a similar delivery to my daughter. There is also a slight chance we might attempt a home birth this time but its mainly down to child care issues with my daughter!
Bella- thanks, there is no reason she shouldn't like me I am nothing but polite and nice to her. I really think she's crazy I've tried for so long to ignore of just get over it so things don't have to be like that cause I don't want my husband to be in the middle but I just can't do it anymore I refuse, on top of that she told my husband that she's going to get my babies ears pierced even though I don't want it done I just don't understand my baby will never be left alone with her EVER ... I'm glad you can understand where I'm coming from its nice to have a place to vent
omg i would kill somebody if they said they were going to take my baby and do something like that without my consent!! I totally feel your pain please vent away!!!
If someone did that to my child I would have them arrested for assault. What a vile woman!
I am terribly afraid of medical intervention (its just who i am) so i go natural. I know that 90% of the time epidurals go as planned... but they increase the risk for the need for pitocin (and that causes very HARD contractions) and they say combined it increases the risk of emergancy c-section (my second biggest fear next to getting on a airplane). So for me the pain is worth it. I had a great labour with my DD. I really spent the time to educate myself on natural births - prepare for the pain, learning coping techniques etc.
I completely 100% respect anyone's decision on how to deliver their babies, and i hope we can all do the same with each other!! This tends to be a very tender subject... people get all defensive about their choices
