  1. Birth and Beyond
    <p><span style="color:#ff0000;">[Moderator note: This thread is a spin-off of a topic originally brought up in the Home Birth Forum.  Because it deals with both topics of risk during vaginal birth and the merits of elective cesarean, I split the thread and am hosting this portion here in the...

I am concerned that my vagina is very open (and much larger) and I can see right inside it even when I am standing...

    <p>This is a poll for women who have chosen or will choose natural chidlbirth, i.e. childbirth without epidural anesthesia or other pharmacological pain interventions.  No epidural v.

    <p>So I just peed and when I wiped, there was a bunch of snotty stuff.  Not clear like egg-****** stuff you get around ovulation, but similar to that in consistency.  Not just a tiny dot, but a good amount I would say.  It's probably nothing, but I just thought I'd ask.  I'm 38 wks, 4 days...
