Stretch and sweep, managed 3rd stage
(Not to mention DRUGS... Every single kind-gas, pethidine, epidural)

No intervention. I did have an internal when I arrived at hospy in established labour, not sure if that counts as intervention? I was asked if I wanted one and I did, to get an idea of where I was at. Other than that absolutely nothing.
Nothing for second birth either - not even an internal. Middy was only there for 15/20 mins before he popped out.

No intervention, and I believe that is because I had a home birth.
Just to elaborate, I mean that if I had been in hospy I might've had internals, which might have halted progress and led to further interventions. Or decided to use pain relief. etc

Yep, the following;
-S&S (was in pre-labour & OB did to see if it moved things along)
-ARM (so they could pop internal monitor on DD as external wasn't picking her hb up properly & they were worried)
-forceps (DD was in distress (reducing hb & mec in waters)
-syncotin injection (to assist placenta delivery)
-controlled traction to deliver placenta

S&S, syntocin, ventouse, episiotomy and managed 3d stage...
Would you believe that I got to full dilation and even start pushing without any intervention?!
I really thought I'd birth that bub "naturally" lol

Yep, I had an "elective," caesarean after 3 failed induction attempts.
Given I'm planning to homebirth in future, fingers crossed there's no more birth intervention in my future.

No intervention at all, even had a natural 3rd stage
