This is specifically first your first birth .
Intervention is defined as any or all of the following: Stretch and sweep, gel to start labour, ARM (breaking of the waters) before birth, episiotomy, syntocin, forceps, ventouse, CS (emergency or elective), managed 3rd stage (injection of syntocin to birth the placenta) or any other medicalised procedure that is designed to encourage birth or assist in the birth of the baby. Intervention does not include any pain relief.
To be clear, there is no judgement or suggestion that in anyone's birth the intervention is not warranted. I have no training in this field so it would be incredibly impertinent of me to suggest otherwise. This is merely to gain numbers as my hunch is that they would be an alarming number of women who had some intervention in their first birth.

I had stretch and sweeps and an ARM as well as a managed third stage. (ARM medically required for low AFI bub needed to come out!)

Yes, I had ARM and syntocinon.
I had a bleed and leaking hindwaters at 38+2. As I hadn't progressed after 24 hours of being left to do my own thing (lots of walking!), I had my forewaters broken and was given syntocinon. I had a great birth.

I was two weeks over due, so I was induced. I had the following interventions:
Stretch and sweep (failed), gel to start labour, ARM, syntocinon drip, ventouse and the injection to help the placenta (not that I remember that!)
Not the drug free, natural birth I was hoping for!

Yes. A lot.
