My first was med-free with (the devil) pitocin. This time I'm going to birth center that doesn't offer pain meds. Med-free for me is not a "prove it" thing, I know I can. And honestly, I wish I had had fewer medical interventions with my first. Interventions tends to snowball into further interventions, and for me that meant a horribly painful recovery. I'm hoping to have a pain-limited recovery by having the least amount of interventions possible.
