Check out Mrs. Avocado (www.thatwife.com). She has a natural home birth and has plenty of posts about preparing herself for it. Next week she is going to start recapping the birthing process.

Also, Heather at Dooce.com had a natural birth with her second child. Check out the July 2009 posts on her website. The way she describes her birthing process (and that of her assistant) is beautiful!

Unfortunately, I probably won’t be able to have a completely natural birth when I decide to have children. I have a heart condition and I can’t put too much strain on it :/

I think Doulas can be a great source of info if you are interested in that.  And they make great resources during the whole pregnancy.

cool notion, though not sure I would want to have an orgasm while people are watching me give birth 🙂

I think pain is just part of the deal 🙂 I understand that natural birth moms enjoy a lot more endorphins afterward though, which I think accounts for the blissfulness. But really, human birth is one of the most painful in the animal world. We’re actually poorly designed for it. We gave up a lot of room for bipedal motion.

Here’s a nice little quote:

“Because of the necessities of bipedalism, the pelvis of a human female is much narrower than that of other primates, meaning that numerous physical complications arise, and birth is physically more painful.”

I’ve heard the term “orgasmic birth,” but I haven’t done a ton of research into it.  However, my husband and I did read the Bradley book (Bradley is a natural birthing method), and Dr. Bradley does talk about the possibility of experiencing an orgasm during birth.  Pushing a baby out involves many of the same parts of the body as having sex, so it makes sense that some women would be stimulated into an orgasm.  Also, the Bradley method stresses a lot that birth can/should be a pleasurable experience for both the mother and her partner.  It’s also emphasized that birthing is a shared/bonding experience, and that the mother’s partner should create an atmosphere like you would for lovemaking (i.e. low lights, soft talking, repeating phrases/words you use during foreplay, etc…).  If you’re looking for a pleasurable natural birthing experience, it might be worth it to read up on the Bradley method:

I had all three of my kids naturally and will aim for that this time, as well. Orgasmic, or pleasurable,  is not a word I would choose, that’s for damn sure. I’ll have to check out some of these links, even though my first reaction is skepticism.

I’m planning (for when we do decide to have our beh-beh) on having a natural birth. I don’t like the ideas of c-sections and pain medication, so I’ve been scouting for a nurse-midwife to help me. I think I’ve already decided that I do not want a doula, simply because I would rather have a close friend/FI/family member to coach me. We’ll just have to see though.

If I ever have a kid, I’m not going to be able to get an epidural so I might have to look into this so I don’t die of pain.
