My partner was located when he chose to come back to Darwin from a remote fishing spot 3 hrs away, and arrived an hour after my son was born at 6pm (arrived at 7pm). He had quite a few messages on his phone from his mother, as you can imagine. So that's my first labour story
    Oh my god! That's just unbelievable. Like the saying goes 'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger' clearly that's the case with yourself. You sound like a very caring, strong & passionate women. Well done!

    Why would they be out of your control? If you lie down, lie on your side.

    I have no idea what sort of pregnancy/labour/birth I'm going to have.
    i have an idea of what I'd like and what I don't want.
    Like I said laying down on a bed for possibly 12hrs + is not something I particular want to do. But that may be out if my control, my ob might say you need to lay down that's going to be the best thing for you. So be it!

    just because someone else thinks something might the best thing for you, doesn't nessacerily mean it will be. But that's a whole other topic.

    wannawannabe, do you know if they will allow you to lie on your side to give birth if you have an epidural?

    Theoretically they should. But chances are they won't.

    Like I said in my previous post if you've got enough strength in your legs, you can push on your hands and knees on the bed or even sit on a birth stool on the bed or on the ground.

    Not to scare you, but if you have an epidural at your hospital, theres a very high chance you will end up with an assisted delivery.
