    Default Lets talk about what we would change in our labour /births

    Plexus solair u must feel horrible but dnt put that on yourself u did what u felt was best at time and u weren't to know when dd would be born I'm sure they all would understand.
    Will u go again. Mayb just hav your mum instead of everyone then it would be less pressure on you worrying etc.
    I'd like my mum I think next time my dh is not the best of support through labour just doesn't know what to do lol

    And for u other great mums some of u must be a bit anxious how ur nxt one will be I think after your first ur more aware of what happens so u tent to speak up more.
    I dnt think I could go public given some things I've herd from friends I prefere my own room and privacy afterwards.
    And why did they not give u bub cut the cord etc etc? Was something wrong mayb?

    Also has any one done calm birth as I wouldn't mind trying that but I'm worried it will be a waste of time and money as I'm such a anxious contrôlée person and needs to know exactly when ill go into labour hence I was induced both times was 2 wks over with my first dd and a week early with ds so hav no idea what it feels like to into it naturally I worry I won't make it to hospital etc

    I wouldn't really change anything that I did, it's very daunting and I think I did well. I had an epidural 17 hours in because the contractions were one on to of the other and I needed a break.
    They used a vacuum to help her out (she was a big 9lb baby) but it fell of her head anyway and I got her out on my own pretty much. I had an espisiotomy (sp?) which didn't worry me either.

    Next time (which will be august 2013) I might try having a bath and maybe an exercise ball, but I feel no pressure avoid the epidural, if I want it I'll have it.
    Considering doing a calm birth class for DH mainly, just so he can support me better if i have another long labour. He was hopeless last time!

    I loved both my labours, only thing I'd change is trying harder to not have pethidine, I'm glad that's all I had but I really wanted drug free.

    I loved ds2's birth most, he was born quickly, in the water and it was calm and beautiful. I actually enjoyed giving birth.

    Ds1 I would never be induced again for not progressing (my waters broke, I was gbs positive so the induced the next morning) I had started contracting so would have done it in my own time. It wasn't overly traumatic though, he wasn't ready and it took over two hours of full pushing

    Ds3 was pretty perfect and "easy" too, the midwife thought I had a temp half way through though and talked to the student about calling upstairs as I was in the birth centre... Well I totally stopped labouring cos I was petrified of the birth suite. I went for a walk and he was born an hour and a half later but I wish I hadn't heard that and it would have been much more relaxed for me...
