I'm currently working on my "birth plan" as mandated by my doctor.
One of the most pressing questions is natural, or drug free. I can always change my mind, of course, but I'd love some perspective from some mothers
who did decide to go drug free.
If you did go the natural route, would you do it again? Why or why not? What influenced your decision?
Were there other techniques you employed as a pain management strategy? Did you just embrace it?
I know exactly one person who went drug free, and she did it because there just wasn't time to administer anything. That person is my mother, so if
I get the "baby just falls out" gene, it could be me, too.
Everyone else stresses GET THE DRUGS; but, I'm a pretty natural person. I'm not opposed, but I'd like to consider it.
Any advice, ladies?
PS. How long was your labour? My mother laboured 3 hours total with me, and 5 with my brother. She claims "walking" and "being a deep sleeper"
affected her labour times, lol.
