I delivered my daughter on Dec. 16th, 2010 and I did It all natural, which I am very proud of myself b/c I didn't think I could do it. I know I'm posting this a little late, but I'm a first time mom and I have been bonding with my little one and enjoying motherhood thus far. I strongly encourage all expectant moms to deliver their child naturally, it is an awesome experience and the drugs really deprive you of a special thing. If you decide to deliver naturally get yourself a doula to coach you and help you through the delivery. I didn't want a doula at first I thought my husband was enough, but take it from me you just may be pushing him away from you. So consider it its a great feeling of empowerment after you have done it.
