I felt obligated to prepare for unmedicated labor for both of my births. For the first, I thought I would be seen as a bad mother, and weak, if I accepted pain relief during labor. For my second, an epidural didn’t even seem like an option anymore.

The fact that I had gone unmedicated for my first meant I was capable of doing it again, in my. When vaginal childbirth involves the use of medications to lessen or completely eliminate the pain during labor, it is said to be a medicated birth. A medicated birth is an option where various pain relief medications are used as per a woman’s specific conditions and your doctor will choose the one that suits you the best. I felt obligated to prepare for unmedicated labor for both of my births. For the first, I thought I would be seen as a bad mother, and weak, if I accepted pain relief during labor.

For my second, an epidural didn’t even seem like an option anymore. The fact that I had gone unmedicated for my first meant I was capable of doing it again, in my mind. As a result, relief is rapid and complete but lasts only a few hours.

I planned for a medicated birth. I had the, “as soon as I can get the epidural the better” mindset, because modern medicine is amazing and with it labor can be a painless experience. My labor was in total 5 hours long, from water breaking to baby in arms, and I.

Contrary to popular belief, epidurals do not sedate the baby or the mom. In other words: both parties are still wide awake during the entire process of childbirth. There are, however, some IV pain medications that do sedate. Sedation during childbirth can be good in the appropriate conditions and bad in other conditions.

  • Not all babies are beautiful as soon as they are born. They are all precious and cute, but Wilson is truly a beautiful baby from the first moments. Congratulations so much on your new arrival (6 months late, lol). I’m new to your channel after just finding it today. I’m looking forward to getting to know you and your lovely little family more as I watch your videos. Take care… Heather����

  • I went into my first labor expecting the epidural to take pain away and it failed I had such a traumatic experience I still struggle with ptsd and I’m about to give birth again and I’m terrified

  • I am having natural labor too! With an Epidural as soon as possible, there is nothing more natural than giving birth to a baby whether you use pain medication or not ❤️

  • 2:02 ok so i now realize why some people say women scream during labor and other don’t, because she didn’t get an epidural. I gave birth with an epidural and didn’t scream, just constantly gasped for air

  • Thee best advice I ever got was from my Aunt Dorothy who was the head nurse of obstetrics at a major hospital. My Aunt Dorothy was the boss applesauce for 45 years…she was even a teaching RN and had her masters she could have been a doctor but she loved delivering babies…She was the most kind loving pure of heart woman who was adored by everyone blessed to have her in their lives, and most certainly including all the Mommys Daddys and babies!!!

  • Kind of wish the last part of delivery wasn’t fast forwarded. Any particular reason for what I guess was skipping the ‘realest’ part?

  • im from the uk and most ladies here have no epidural when givng birth. It is amazing I have had both my daughters natural and will have my son natural too. Well done:)

  • Although it was months ago, congratulations. May I ask why you were on your back was it your preference or did the hospital environment kind of made it that way? I wonder if it would have been easier (it is supposed to be, quite a lot, however every woman and birth is different). Just curious. Thanks ^^ Best wishes for your little cute family: )

  • Seeing your first baby meet your new baby made me choke up ����
    Also, I’m weird and wish I could’ve heard the screams. Its the reality ��‍♀️

  • Thank you for showing the moments between contractions! I am hoping to deliver my first naturally, and seeing that there are moments between the contractions is so helpful! It makes labor seem so much more manageable! I feel like if a true labor, contractions and the times between, were shown more often more women would feel empowered to try and deliver naturally instead of being fearful of delivering!

  • I am very shortsighted so I need my eyeglasses. Until what part of the labor are you allowed to wear them? When does it become necessary to take them down?

  • I’m going into my second trimester and I’m trying not to ball like a baby. ������ This is our second and I’m hoping to try and deliver naturally. With our first they messed up ok the epidural so I had to get two….I’m nervous for how this time around is going to be. Did they let you play music while in the room?

  • ALL OF YOUR BABIES ARE GORGEOUS YOU GUYS HAVE A LOVELY FAMILY…ALL OF YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS HOW LOVELY AND WHAT A BLESSING…SWEET SO VERY LOVING…SO MUCH LOVE THERE..GOOD JOB MAMMA!!

  • I am 7mos pregnant thank God I saw this vid made me less scared. I also want to go natural please pray for me. God bless all Moms and moms to be ❤

  • Omg the girls are so cute i love them haha and i love your videos there so cute. I love how real they are like theres no bs just life i love it

  • Hi! I’m due in 3 months and noticed that you’re in my area, near Glendale. Was wondering if that was Glendale Adventist that you delivered at or did you go to Cedars?
