    Yes. Waters broke at 35 weeks and then nothing. This was 20 years ago though and the thinking was a little different back then

    Anyhoo
    1) presented at hosp with ruptured waters
    2) Gel
    3) Gel. Again.
    4) drip
    5) drip. Again.
    6) midwife attempted to break my hind waters. My hind waters had broken like I tried to tell her. She wouldnt listen. I never forgot that.
    7) Epi
    8) Finally things got moving and my huge baby got stuck.
    9) Full length episiotomy front to back.
    10) My huge baby pulled out by forceps. A whole 4lb 14oz!

    Idiots. I still remember that midwife's name too

    This is why I didn't have my.next bub till 11.5 years after the first.

    Sorry for the essay

    Labour started Wednesday at lunch time, after two days of no sleep I BEGGED them for an Epi at lunch time on Friday when I went to hospital, and we were left to sleep for three hours once it was in. Best $800 I've ever spent.


    Totally in love with our two beautiful little girls.

    Emergency CS only. Sending my baby into distress was an entirely natural, intervention-free process. Same for my 2nd too!

    S&S at 40 weeks, gas and air and peth during labour and a managed third stage...I feel very fortune to have a minimal intervention birth was very straight forward and as easy as birth can be

    Yep, I had a stretch and sweep (did nothing), ARM, drip to speed things up and managed third stage with my first.

    With my first I was induced on my due date with gel, my blood pressure was climbing & I didn't want a c/s. There was no other medical intervention, I used gas for pain relief, labour lasted 13hrs from application of gel to delivery.

    Very happy with my experience.

    Nope, completely natural. I didn't have any choice though.. an hour and a half long labour and 2 rather *****y midwives wouldn't allow any pain relief.
