Preeclampsia and a natural childbirth
January 28, 2013 at 5:44 PM

Have any moms out there had a natural childbirth after being hospitalized for preeclampsia/HELP/or toxemia?

I am wondering because I did and it is just now sinking in how incrediably dangerous it was for me and my baby...

    :( That sounds horrible. I refused pitocin. My agreement with the doctor was if I did not go into labor naturally in ten hours that I would have the emergency C section. I was 2 c dilated at the time and 37 weeks. I did elect for the cervical gel. Within two hours I was at a 6...I had non stop contractions after they broke my water. They were EXCRUCTIATING. I was more scared of an epidural/pitocin than dying...

    On the one hand I survived and my daughter was very not so much but I did not die. 

    On the other hand WTF was I thinking lol
