I read them off and on as the mood strikes. I recently looked at some youtube videos of twin home births.
I love reading birth stories!! I read the first half of Ina May's Guide to childbirth every time I get pregnant! :)
That book was the reason I tried for a natural birth! Before that, I remember saying I'd take any and all drugs!
I found out with my second birth when I ended up in the hospital due to not being able to line up a home birth in Romania, it got so hard that I was like, I'll take meds now. I knew I didn't want them before, but I couldn't control myself. Thankfully, they didn't have any. Said I had to get them at 3-4 cm or I couldn't have anything. Weird, but it worked out. haha
But, now that I've done it all natural twice, I suspect I could be stronger if I had access to pain meds, but when they dangle the "candy" in front of your face at the hospital, oy.
