With my first kiddie I was able to do so all natural. I loved the experience and appreciated being able to get right up after birth. So when I had my 2nd kiddie I went over 11 hours attempting to have him natural as well but due to not being able to dilate fully I had to get the epidural * my boys were 9 lbs 6 oz, and 9 lbs 4 3/4 oz & the way my 1st boy positioned himself in me was pressed right up against everything which made it hard for my body to dilate. Although I loved the pain relief I had bad anxiety *ptsd* due to traumatic reasons I have a really hard time being with not being able to move. But with my boys they kind of forced my hand lol I came far too close to a c-section and I was more terrified of needing that due to watching my mom have a horrible experience from her c-section.
Then with my last kiddie after going through a really painful pregnancy * i had gull stones, kidney stones, a bladder infection, pelvic infection, kidney infection and was hospitalized for most of the pregnancy due to it. I was in extreme pain - and knowing how I came way too close to needing a c-section for my first boy and seeing my last kiddie was just as big and was positioned similiar I decided to just get the epidural. Thankfully i did because while giving birth they realized he had the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck and shoulder and they had to unwrap him while I was pushing - during that experience I actual tore front to back and it took about 2 1/2 hours to stitch me up. That pregnancy and delivery was my hardest one - but the epidural definitely came in handy then lol.
I had natural birth I was in labour for three days it hurts alot but it feels good after all
My second one without epidural, they were insisting me to take it as my labor was really painful I was induced for more than 22 hrs and my water was broken a week before during that week I was experiencing contractions on and off nd was on antibiotics too. So according midwives I wasn’t dilated enough, but I said no. And in next 10 minutes my baby was in my hands 🤪. I personally do not recommend epidural bcoz its not good for your back.
Painful, stressful and feels like everything inside you is tearing apart 😭😭😭😭!! But once it's done and baby is out , the recovery is AMAZING. I was out of hospital within 24hrs and in the kitchen next morning cooking and cleaning like I didn't even have my beautiful boy #3 lol.
Epidural also fucked my back up big time the first time I had it with my first baby
Had a home birth with a midwife. no meds 3 hr labor pushing for 20 min would do it over the same way
