I wanted to be able to move about freely and without constriction. I knew from research that mothers instinctively move in ways that bring their babies down. I didn’t want any drug in my system that would speed up contractions or numb the pain because I knew these drugs would come with risks. I know it’s possible to have a natural birth in a hospital, but I didn’t just want “natural” as in “no epidural”; I wanted natural as in I allow my body to take over and birth my baby without anything hooked up to me or anyone telling me where or how I had to give birth. My body didn’t need help.
