    I will be opting for an elective c-section if this baby doesn't turn out of breech position!

    For me, I don't care how my baby enters the world... as long as they are happy and healthy.

    Oh and bmjandbaby, I believe in calmbirth/hypnobirthing and they teach that the pain ultimately comes from fear. I worked very hard to have my head in a good place for my birth and as a result I really didn't feel pain. It's not for everyone, but it worked for me and I worked so hard because I wasn't comfortable with the side effects (medical and emotional) of any of the drug pain relief options. I did have sterile water injections and they were amazing.

    OP, a few of the reasons *I* choose not to use drugs during childbirth are- I had peth with my first two and it is horrible, horrible stuff! I vomited and felt drunk and stoned all at once and it was just awful! It can also cause breathing problems in the baby as it crosses into their blood. Thats another reason not to have it- because the baby gets it too. Gas- the same. And it didn't help me personally. Epidural- I'm very very scared of having a bit needle in my spine. I'm preg with twins atm, and just praying I can have a natural birth without an epidural (lots of pressure from hosp to have epidural) because the thought of that needle scares me so much. Also scared of possible complications and side effects of epidural. Epidural also increases the chance you will have an instrumental delivery (forceps/vacuum) or a c/s- all things I wanted to avoid.

    I choose vb because of the risks associated with c/s (yes I know there are risks associated with vb as well) and the risks associated with the epidural/spinal block. Also I can't afford the recovery time. And not all hosp are c/s baby friendly, as in many of them will not let baby in recovery with you, and I want my baby with me straight away. Natural birth is also best for baby, the process is very important for their health (esp lungs).

    Each to their own, both the mother and baby's interests need to be taken into account, esp in cases of sexual abuse I can absolutely understand why a vb would be so traumatic.

    I know I didn't answer the original question, but you asked why anyone would have a vb when c/s is available and why you'd do it drug free when you can do it pain free, so thought I'd answer that

    Oh and c/s birth stories are great too, so please don't feel you can't share them!

    BMJ - I was induced with my first labour. It was very quick and painful. I had pethidine during my daughter's birth. She was born less than an hour later and didn't even cry when she was born. She wouldn't latch on and was groggy for 48 hours.

    When I was pregnant with my son, I went into labour naturally and only got to hospital with one hour spare before he was born. I didn't know I was so close to birthing because I had only ever been induced.

    If I have another baby, I will do my best to have no intervention again, especially no epidural. I've never had an epidural and don't want one. There is no prouder moment in my life than carrying my babies in my arms and walking out of the delivery suite

    As an aside, I have had 2 wisdom teeth extracted in the chair at the same time. I had drugs, but it's not comparable to me. Labour prepares your body for birth.

    I find coming in and talking about drug free labour and the risks of csection when asked why did people choose an elective csection attacking of choices made.

    I couldn't care just find it disrespectful to people who opened up and gave you their reasons.

    Some people have opinions on practically everything even without experiences of them.

    BMJ Annabella covered a lot of why some women opt for no pain meds.

    In regards to the epidural there can be what's called a cascade of intervention that can lead to c/s. Google it there's lots of stuff on it.

    I actually thought the discussion has been very polite and civilised. These type of threads can tend to turn a whole lotta nasty most of the time. If I've upset anyone I've very sorry I'm simply responding to questions the OP has asked and I think it's good to share info.

    And pain relief can affect the baby too, re: why no pain relief.

    ETA, sorry I posted without refreshing.

    The op has since asked why people choose not to have drugs during labour.

    It seems that you're entitled to your opinion on labour and vb, yet you haven't experienced it???
