I have had 2 fast(and i mean fast)drug free vaginal births.
DD was induced at 41+3, 50min labour
DS I wanted to go as natural as possible, so i hung out 3 weeks over due(yes I am crazy) and I was only in active labour for 45mins.
VERY do-able to have them as natural as possible. I believe it is as much mind power as it is physical strength.
goodluck with your up coming birth and I truely hope you get the dream birth that is right for YOU!

Absolutley women give birth vaginally..... I have found in my mums group and playgroup though, that it is just not talked about as much as c/sections. I find the people who have had c/sections, generally have a "story" to go with it - about why they had a c/section, etc (im not saying they have to justify it, they just seem to do it instinctively).... So maybe just c/sec are talked about more...
I had two drug free, natural, fast births!!!!!! :-) Loved every second of both of them!!!!!

I had a vaginal birth. I was 42 years old at the time so supposedly in the age group that was more likely to have major complications that could lead to C section. It was at a public hospital & I laboured for 17 hours before any intervention was even suggested.

I gave birth naturally, twice, I even had a special X-ray to measure 3 parts of my cervix and I'm not 'suppose' to push babies out cause I'm too small! I did! It's hard not to worry about needing a csar, I'm on my 3rd and still worry something 'might' happen... Just keep active, keep positive and youll b sweet!

- Home, where my life lies waiting, silently, for me.
My first labour was drug free, but I did have the gel, after 2 days of spurious labour, to help dilate.
I then had 21 hours of active labour, and no pain relief. I then had complications which were extremely painful, but no time for pain relief.
I had local anaesthetic afterwards for stitches.
Next time I will go 100% natural.

I started a poll when I first got pregnant about how many ceasers vs vaginal births everyone has had because I thought Ceasers were really common these days. Vaginal births won by a long shot: I came to the conclusion that you don't hear about the complication free natural births, same theory that if someone has a positive experience they tell 3 people and if they have a bad experience they tell 10 people I guess!

wow! thanks for all the replies!!!
it's great to hear some POSITIVE stories
especially about induction etc.
This is why i love this forum sooooo much, you can talk to drs and midwives all you want, but until you speak to ladies that have actually gone through it, it doesn't really sink in.
Thanks again for all the replies, i actually slept a little better last night
