    No intervention. I did have an internal when I arrived at hospy in established labour, not sure if that counts as intervention? I was asked if I wanted one and I did, to get an idea of where I was at. Other than that absolutely nothing.

    Nothing for second birth either - not even an internal. Middy was only there for 15/20 mins before he popped out.

    And I had also forgotten that the cord was cut when only the head was out - because it was wrapped around the neck and not easily untangled.

    So yep, I guess that is a whole lot of intervention after all.

    No intervention, and I believe that is because I had a home birth.

    Just to elaborate, I mean that if I had been in hospy I might've had internals, which might have halted progress and led to further interventions. Or decided to use pain relief. etc

    Yep, the following;
    -S&S (was in pre-labour & OB did to see if it moved things along)
    -ARM (so they could pop internal monitor on DD as external wasn't picking her hb up properly & they were worried)
    -Episiotomy
    -forceps (DD was in distress (reducing hb & mec in waters)
    -syncotin injection (to assist placenta delivery)
    -controlled traction to deliver placenta

    S&S, syntocin, ventouse, episiotomy and managed 3d stage...

    Would you believe that I got to full dilation and even start pushing without any intervention?!

    I really thought I'd birth that bub "naturally" lol

    Yep, I had an "elective," caesarean after 3 failed induction attempts.

    Given I'm planning to homebirth in future, fingers crossed there's no more birth intervention in my future.
