Well, there's nothing like waiting until the last minute to post this but....here goes:)
I'm going to be induced in two days. We are having a doula attended hospital birth. My husband and I have a D/s relationship (Dominant/submissive) and we hope to incorporate that into our birth. It is our hope that I will be able to give myself over to that dynamic and use it as a focal point throughout labor. It is my goal to do this without meds even with the pitocin induction...but I have done it before (twice with an epidural and once without...all with pitocin) so I'm not opposed to meds if I need them.
My question is, have any of you done this? How well did it work for you? Any suggestions?
I know there are many variables but my husband and I live it as much as we can with 3 kids around the house:)
Good luck to you. Trust your intuition and everything will be as you hoped. Or at least very much what it needs to be.
