I had a very short labour (less than 2 hours). Pushed for a few minutes if that (not clockwatching) and the placenta came in about 40 minutes (baby was not interested in feeding and I didn't move around).

I wanted to have my 3rd áccidently'at home but I wasn't prepared. So when I became preg I told hubby how I wanted to plan a uc. He was angry and didn't want even a hb. I didn't argue. I would tell him about things i had read and he at first said I don't want to hear it . Slowly he changed his mind (he kew how important it was to me and that I had the confidence)and started watching videos. "Business of being born" seemed to help a lot and he could relate to that. He even...
I do refer to Eve who had unattended births obviously. I also believe God is more powerful than any dr.
