What did you do/want to do for relief?
Just watching One born every minute... And it seems like everyone is encouraged to have an epidural...
I had pethedine and gas,
I had a water birth, which was the best relief.

I agree. Getting in the water was great pain relief. I also used vocalisation

If somehow I was to have a natural birth which I'm not but anyway, I would have heat packs and the epidural, wouldn't bother with pethidine.

I didn't have anything and found breathing the best.
all the pain relief made me feel sick so i went without and really happy i did .

I had no pain relief for either of my births.
The first was a water birth.
The second I was too far gone by the time I even contemplated pain relief.

I used gas,
If i have another i plan nothing.
The gas worked but it sent me high as a kite, i could not focus on labour and my 'timeline' of dss birth is totally messed up.
I managed to get to 10 cm without pain relief (just had a lip to go)

I did want a epidural free birth, but a good friend said something I believe I will always thank her for. She asked me if I wanted to enjoy the experience. I have a very low pain threshold and would definitely not enjoy it if I was in agony. Since I am allergic to pethadine, morphine and all morphine derrivatives, it was going to be either gas or epidural. Gas ain't gunna cut it. I know my limits (for example I almost fainted from the pain when I shut my finger in a concertina door hinge) and me thinks my limit in childbirth was way back there, in the distance, maybe in a different time zone.

Our number 3 is going to be another water birth, and I'm so excited! With baby 2, breathing worked wonders too, I can't believe how awesome it actually worked lol

1st gas and pethidine
2nd to 5th gas so i could bite on the tube.
6th gas and a informed afterwards that they gave me pethidine, I had a bad panic attack. Dh says i consented but i don't remember consenting to it.
