I havent used pain killer in most of my
I was interested in the Bradley method first time around but couldn't find an instructor nearby...we went with Lamaze and all I really used were the focus and breathing techniques. The birthing ball was the bomb! I loved that thing! I had extreme pressure with contractions and that glorious ball made it all go away.
I too had a doctor who was trying to talk me out of my birth plan. Thankfully the nurse was on my side and she did her best to keep the doc away until delivery time! :)
Pardon my spelling, I'm not good with drug names, lol.
I have 2 kids so far. Both were induced. They were large babies, both around 9 pounds,
wow, that sounds awful! I was lucky that I didn't have any blood pressure issues and that my daughter was small (6lb 12oz) so it wasn't quite that dramatic. I am delivering in a different hospital this time with a new doctor so I think I'll be a bit more stubborn when it comes to what I want to do and what I feel is best for my birth.
I read and read and read, it's a bit disgusting how much information I suck up. I did the Bradley books, and Sears, and Ina May Gaskin, and many more -
No, no, no I'm not with you on this one lol.
