Well, I guess in the back of my mind I knew about these things. But I wish when I was laboring and not progressing past 1 cm (water was broken though), that my MWs had suggested going home for a while, nipple stimulation, herbs, castor oil, or other methods other than pitocin or cervadil. IMO those things should only be a last resort. Luckily the birth turned out fine but it was not the all natural experience I had hoped for. Someone bringing up those things could have helped me- I was very exhausted after days of prodromal labor and willing to listen to whatever they told me.
Also I wish like the pp that I had the faith in my body to birth #1 at home.... i'm going for it this time too
