    For my first birth, yes.

    I was induced with the drip after my waters broke spontaneously because I had strep b. I had pethidine.

    Technically I had the needle for the third stage however I didn't need it but I'd bled so much and had so much damage I hadn't noticed it had come out and the midwives couldn't tell straight away either like I said a lot of blood. Within 15mins of the birth and 5 local anesthetics in my vajayjay I was being rushed off to surgery for a severe third degree tear where I got an epidural (one I'd asked for in transition and decided I couldn't do it anymore and was wondering if they'd notice if I went into the corner and could tell me when it was over)

    So technically yes I had intervention it's just it was all post birth took 3hrs to be back with DS and DH while they watched tennis or something and I tried to tune out being stitched back together.

    Prior to me hitting transition I'd been happily ensconced in the big bath with no internal checks just checking my temp every 30mins or so and checking babies heart rate as it was helping me manage the pain really well. I don't think my tearing would have happened would have happened or been anywhere near as bad if I'd stayed in until I was ready to push but hindsight and all that jazz

    C section at 36w after being medicated/on bed rest for high blood pressure most of the pregnancy. Also had the steroid injections.

    ARM (breaking of the waters) before birth,
    episiotomy,
    ventouse,
    managed 3rd stage (injection of syntocin to birth the placenta)

    I had the above. ARM at 2-3cm
    3rd degree episiotomy (which cause 4th degree tears)
    Ventouse delivery due to ineffective pushing
    Managed third stage.

    With my second i got a S and S at 4days overdue(couldnt be performed as my cervix with high, hard and closed). I opted for a natural third stage but about 15min after baby was born i started bleeding a lot so the asked my permission to give me the needle so they could see if the bleeding stopped after the placenta was delivered (I agreed)

    First baby - Gel twice, s&s without explanation, ARM, synto drip, 8 internal examinations and a csection.

    Second baby - I begrudgingly let the midwife do ARM just to make her stop talking and go away.

    Yep. Stretch and sweep, established labour within a few hours of that. No other intervention other than an injection to birth the placenta shortly after the birth I forget what that shot is called.

    I had a balloon inserted to open my cervix, waters broken, drip for 20mins then emergency csection all due to distress of baby.
