I think I want to try to deliver without medication. I have arrived at this decision tentatively, and I feel like I'm going to have to learn to say it with much more confidence if it's actually going to happen. I know that much of birth is unpredictable, and I'm not trying to control every aspect of it. I'm just saying that if things go well, and both me and my baby are safe, I'm going to try to deliver naturally.
So, my question: For those of you who delivered babies naturally (or wanted to), when did you know that's what you were going to do? Did you make up your mind right away? Did you go into the delivery room thinking you'd see how it went? If you wanted a natural birth initially but changed your mind, how did that change take place?
