..not totally UC, I was too scared of social services. I called them too early and they left and came back almost too late, just in time to tell me I didnt have room in the tub and try leaning over the bed, then WOOSH he was out.


It wasnt a very long labour either. I screamed alot for the last 3 pains.

otherwise everything else was fine. mostly it was just me yelling I cant do it for an hour and my husband saying I WAS doing it and my other son yelling women have done it for millenia

LOL! no, the midwives I meant. it really wasnt too bad, they already knew I was perfectly willing to do it alone, and didnt intrude at all. they got here the second time about the time I had to push
