Health and Pregnancy
Thank you for this video!! i am having a baby girl (her name is Olivia) in January and i wasn't sure how i wanted the birthing process to go. every time i think about having a natural birth i automatically think of the pain that goes along with it. this video has calmed my nerves a lot!! it has given me a different opinion on natural childbirth. thank you so much!!
I've never had a baby but for me, the thought of pain is less scary than having a needle put into my vertabra
I have extremely fast labors (3) none more then 2 hours . I prefer natural labor but I feel I someone is in labor for 2 days and no progress grab medication. But I hate people u walk in with a mind set I'm taking an epideral try it out first see .,
I have 3 kids, and I'm pregnant with my fourth right now. I had all three naturally, and I'm going to have this one natural as well. My first labor/delivery was a total of 8 hours, my second was 10 hours, and my third lasted 15 hours! My last labor was by far the worst, I was dealing with the pain fine, but the last two hours were just horrible, I was losing my strength,my emotions were all over the place so I wasn't concentrating during the contractions which to me, made them a lot worse!
Induced with first due to high BP, natural labor with second. Epidural with both but much later with second than first. I loved having the epi. Both my manors were long. I as able yo rest before pushing which was great! I could still feel what I need to feel through the medication so I don't think I lost anything, plus I pushed 5 minutes with the first and seven with the second. Thanks to the epidurals :).
I was induced with an epi with my first and a natural home birth with my second.getting induced was way more painful and uncomfortable than my natural birth.I could move around and get massaged by my husband during contractions.it hurt! But I felt it coming on,I got to move which helped reduce the pain.pushing like you said was not that painful! Just tough like a hard workout!
My 1st was a 23hr labor with epidural (which I think slowed the process), my 2nd was an induction without an epidural. Going through the stages of labor without pain meds was the most intense pain ever but I oddly felt empowered & strong by my body's ability to cope (it's your mind that'll get ya). In the end, the actual labor with and without an epidural was the exact same amount of pain. I will add that without the epidural, pushes felt good & relieving.
I loved my second birth way more and I went natural. I highly recommend having a doula! She was amazing! My second labor was 4 hours long. The transition was when my contractions slowed down and the pushing itself wasn't that bad and I felt more pressure then anything! The key to coping for me was remaining calm and at peace during the whole process. With my first birth, I was not prepared and I freaked out. After I had my first, I had already decided what I wanted to do differently.
Again, I loved going natural and if I have more kids, I will go natural again!
Hi cloud mom, I absolutely love your videos. I really really would like to know how you have kept so fit even after 5 babies. I have 2 but after every birth I have ended up retaining 5 kgs and the thought of getting more kids makes me think of retaining another 10 kg and puts me off. I am not very big but looks like all weight is around my tummy and bums, even though i eat sensibly and exercise moderately. Please please do reply, thanks a lot.
Hi, I love your videos, they're so informative. I had my daughter almost 5 years ago and it was an amazing natural birth. Like you, I went into labour very quickly and didn't have time for pain relief except for gas and air. The pain was a lot less than I was expecting from the beginning, and as I was pushing the pain was even less. The most painful bit was when my daughter's head came out, but it only lasted briefly and within minutes of that I was holding my daughter. I'm pregnant again now and am actually looking forward to labour xxx
I was a natural child. I was born at my grandma's house. My midwife was my moms, and my mom planed it from the beginning. So if you plan it from the beginning I guess it works out better
Hi Melissa 🙂 I love your videos, they are extremely helpful. I'm a first-time mom to be & the thought of going into labour scares me so much! I don't know how to cope. Everyone has different experiences and I don’t know how to go about this. Can you help??
You make such great videos! You get right to the point and you're so professional! Thank you! I attempted to have a home birth, but when I dilated to 7cm, my midwife found out my baby girl was breeched. I was going to deliver her this way, but at 10cm my midwife said my birth canal was too tight and it'd be too dangerous. Needless to say I had an emergency c-section and actually grieved afterwards. I'm terrified to have another baby.
