Nope, you went natural in my book!

I had a co-worker who, reporting on another co-worker's birth over the weekend said "yeah, she went natural - well, natural with an epidural". So I guess "natural" to her means the baby came out of the vagina - anything and almost everything could happen in between.

When I told people I wasn't going to use drugs during my first birth, they all gave me the "you'll never be able to do it" crap too. Even my dr said I probably wouldn't be able to do it. Well luckily for me, I am really stubborn, and probably would have "gone natural" just to spite everyone. I didn't have any problems at all, and refused all interventions and dd was born into the bed. This time I'm having a homebirth, and surprisingly all the women that told me I'd never be able to do it before, just think it's awesome that I'm having a homebirth. I haven't once gotten the "you'll be screaming for drugs" line this time.
