I'm really hoping to have an unmedicated birth.  Anyone else?  I'm also not oblivious enough to know that I need to do my homework and I need to be prepared for anything to happen. Any suggestions? Books? Videos?  I'm open to all ideas!

Hi Lorelei,

iVillage has a great Labor & Delivery topic you may want to visit.  The board is filled with ladies that have experience in both medicated and unmedicated labor and I'm sure they'd love to hear from you and offer their advice. I hope we see you there!

Not sure if you've had your baby or finished your research yet - but I highly recommend Spiritual Midwifery and any other books by Ina May Gaskin. She's the mother of the natural birth and midwifery movements. :) Best of luck to you!

Best, Jessie
