Oh Nancy, congrats on the birth of your precious baby boy! And to get through a completely natural, medicated birth without any kind of medical assistance.... that is truly amazing. I know that I felt incredibly empowered when I gave birth naturally to my youngest daughter (and will try my hardest to it again this time around!). It sounds like everything is going really well for you, including breastfeeding. Way to go. I hope that you have lots of help and support in the days and weeks to come.

Thanks so much for sharing your birth story with us, and congrats again!
Looking forward to seeing a few pictures of your new little man, Eric.

Congrats!!!! Your story is so amazing and inspirational!! :) I am hoping to have a natural un-medicated birth as well, but I am terrified the pain will be too much to handle! I love your honesty in this story, and rather than it scaring me it is encouraging me that I can do it too! :) I can't wait to see pictures!! I hope you are enjoying your precious bundle of joy!! :)

Congrats on your little guy!! Sounds like quite the experience going unmediated, way to go! I'm going to be trying that route this time, I've heard the moment most women give in and want the meds is when the baby is coming. Sounds like your hospital was great at working with your birth plan!

Good luck with the house & moving too!

Congrats!!!! I can't wait to see pics! And way to go on the totally unmedicated route! I was accidentally unmedicated for the last 2 and a half hours of Parker's birth and it's got me thinking I might try to go the whole way next time... maybe. lol

And congrats on the house too!!!

Congrats on your little boy! What a great birth story, Nancy! Sounds like you did such a great job! I'm hoping to go unmedicated this time around, too. You are my inspiration! =)

Can't wait to see pics!
