I just had my 9lb6 (4.27kg) bub 10 days ago unmedicated. I had planned to get an epidural but it didn’t happen. I used a tens machine and also the ‘comb technique’ during contractions. I also ate 3 dates a day (in a smoothie) and 2 cups of raspberry leaf tea leading up which is supposed to help ripen cervix. When they did my first check I was already fully dilated. Whether these things helped or not I’m not sure.

I used hypnobirthing with both my kids and having a doula, someone who wasn’t entirely involved ,was really helpful. I was 41+1 when I went into labor with my son and it was 25 hours from when my water broke to when he was born. I was 42 weeks exactly, went in to the hospital at 5:30 am due for an 8 am induction and it was a 12 hour labor. I had pain meds with both but no epidural

I did hypnobirthing it helped. I make it 11.5 hours with no pain meds. Got an epidural after that wasn’t dialating. Got to 5 cm’s then had an emergency c-section.

Labor at home as much as possible!!! I’m a first time mom ending up having my baby at home on accident 😂😂😂 don’t let nobody try to scare you thinking you need an epidural I heard so many people I know say they back hurts now from it

You can get a tens machine, it is a massage device, meant to help you through contractions
