    Default When you say 'drug free labour'..

    Do you mean no gas too, or do you not class gas as a drug?

    Just curious..

    I huffed on the gas like it was going out of fashion. It didn't do jack, but I pretended it did

    I did peth and gas with ds1, and only gas with ds2 and dd (omg its so weird saying that!!). I'd love to claim I had them drug free, but I needed the gas too help me breathe.

    I would say drug free because I had gas with DD1 after a shot of pethadine (spell check just wanted to change that to methadone😣), and both did sweet FA with the induction. My 3 subsequent drug free births were less painful.

    Huge congrats BTW. xx

    Drug free means drug free. Gas is still a drug.

    I don't consider my labour drug free anyway because I was induced so straight away there were drugs involved
