well I consider that pretty natural....depening on where you've chosen to give birth a lot of times you only have 24 hrs to give birth once your water has broken so it's a pretty wise choice to try and speed things up rather than risk needing a c-section. and it's pretty cool to not have pain meds with the pitocin because my understanding is it almost always causes longer and stronger contrax than usual. so I'd be very proud of myself if I did that. and I'd consider it *almost* natural.
but it bothers me when people use natural to describe vaginal, as if pitocin, AROM, epidural, and forceps are still all a natural birth just because it's not a c-section.
