Quoting Crystal Mom of 4:" I love those shows but my experiences were totally different from anything you see on there. I also ... [snip!] ... want to do it but get pain medication because they never learned any effective coping strategies before they went into labor."
Im laboring at home as long as I can, and I'm prepared to try several methods to find out what works for me. So far I am going to get a birthing ball, try warm shower's or bath,walking. I know to breath through the contractions ( hoping I remember that one).
I've been google-ing to try and find better videos of natural birth, found one I thought was great, a home birth where baby was breech, came out butt first it was AMAZING!
