Hell yeah! Way to go!

My mom also had a pitocin-induced, pain-med-free delivery with my sister — and when the pitocin contractions gave my sister decels, they prepped my mom for C-section only to have her ready to push too soon for the operating room so, bam, vaginal delivery!

Awesome story! I love reading stories in which a mom has a great natural birth in a supportive hospital environment!

That’s encouraging.  I don’t think my hospital has wireless monitoring and so I’m worried if I need pitocin I’ll be bed bound on my back and will likely concede to the epidural as the reason I don’t want one is so that I’m not bed bound.  I’m hoping my ob will have more information than the midwife.
