    VB x 2

    DD - natural onset, tried the gas for a few minutes, episiotomy (local injection)
    DS - AROM and no more intervention (tore and received stitches hours after the delivery with a local and the gas at that time)

    Hoping for another VB, natural onset, active labour, no drugs, no tearing, preferably in water this time around (if only I could order it like that )

    VB with gas & peth but by the time the peth kicked in DS was already on his way out (in 8 mins & 5 pushes!!!) small tear & 5 stitches ( I think that's due to the speed he came out though!!)
