giving birthI do give birth in a hospital. I am a "just in case" girl married to the same sort of guy. Technology is for serving me if and when I need it to. That said; I had two previous amazing unmedicted births. I just pace and do whatever I need to and the midwife creeps in and listens to the heartbeat once in a while. The midwife catches the baby and I go home in twelve hours. No meds, no Iv and no yucky interventions. Minimal tests and handling for the baby, too.
We did the Bradley method of chilbirth and love the Leboyer stuff about birth without violence.
