I had 2 natural births (well as natural as a hospital birth at 35 weeks can be- no drugs during delivery, but IV and plenty of nursing problems) with my first 2 and a csection with my 3rd. He was trying to come out forehead first- which we didn't know, but I was there for 24 hrs after my water broke and nothing was happening, then we tried pit, nothing, I was at 8 cm for 6 hrs or something and we decided to c-section. It wasn't until he came out with his forehead all bulging that we knew he was in a bad position. Looking back, were there things I could have done differently?? Maybe, I ask myself that every time I think about it. Was I sure I could do it with no drugs, yep. I fully planned on going in monday am when my water broke, have a baby by monday afternoon and going home on Wed. Instead, he was a csection on tuesday night, I wasn't home until saturday.
