Since The Bear was born, I've become increasingly more of a natural "crunchy" person. Some is due to the fact that I'm more aware of the yucky chemicals in things and part is because I'm at home more.
I am far from being totally green though. I've just tried to make a few small changes.
Anyways, I'm looking for a more natural birthing plan. I didn't really have a game plan with The Bear. I wasn't the going to walk into the hospital and demand an epidural immediately, but I wasn't proactive in doing something to not need one. It's a good thing I wasn't set on anything though because his birth was far from expected.
Does anyone have advice on how to give birth without medication? I'm not going to refuse to get the epidural again (things don't ever go as planned, remember), but I really would like to do my best to refrain from it.
