Both births were NATURAL one the MEDICATION (epidural) didn't really work, but with the second one the MEDICATION (epidural) worked fabulously and because my first was a fairly quick process (less than 12 hours from the first sign of labor)...I got my epi right away and my second son was born 4 hours after my water broke at home!
I did, I was in back labor so the pain was horrible. I opted for the epidural from the get-go because I have panic attacks and asthma and I was afraid of me freaking out. Well I got the epidural and it didn't hold. So since I was able to go through all of that (I was a hair away from having an emergency c-section because my water was broken for 24 hours by the time my son was born) I want to try to go for an all natural birth next time.
