For me personally, no. It had nothing to do with spirituality. I am very much a loner and a quiet secluded type person. I don't like people looking at me or bothering me or touching me when I am in pain. For me it was because of my personality. I needed to be alone in a dark room where I could just hide from the world and not be social.

For me, it was a spiritual thing. But in an earth-loving, nature-worshipping, seeing divinity in the everyday sort of way.

I am anti-organizedreligion. Officially agnostic...

and I had my UC in February 2008. I just did it for nature related reasons mostly.

I am an atheist.

My planned UC (turned hospital transfer) was borne of many of the non-religious reasons listed here...

-Solitary nature
-Privacy
-Anti-doctors/hospitals
-Simplicity
-Logic
-Nature

I am not a 'spiritual' type-person, either. UC just makes sense. Period.

I think my religious education had a lot to do with having a base from which to reject the medical model of birth. I think people who go to Catholic school and are raised Catholic are given this great gift even if they leave the Church as teens or adults - the idea that the Truth exists separate from man's authority. So it's not that surprising or disconcerting to me that the entire medical establishment is full of poop on this matter.

My specific decision to give birth in this way with my second child, after an attempted UC and transfer with my first, was primarily motivated by overwhelming intuition, however.

Yes and no. It started out as me looking for a pain relief alternative to getting another epidural and somewhere in there I stumbled upon UC. It appealed to me and I started researching, only then did I pray about it. I felt led in the direction and that it was the right choice for us. I did pray and talk to God a lot during labor and birth.

I think that people who UC are very educated/well informed/trust your body kind of people. and *those* type of people are usually at the extremes wrt spirituality. pagan/earth loving or very christian. kind of rare to have a lukewarm/mediocre protestant uc.
