Hi all, I have been lurking on this board since finding out we are expecting our first child. I have not found a need to post until now. I would like to plan to have an unmedicated birth if possible, knowing that getting an epidural or c-section is a possibility. My family has not been supportive about this, basically laughing at me about it. I really want to take a natural childbirth class, which from what I've found is $300 for a 12- week class. My husband has been somewhat more supportive of my wish to have an unmedicated birth, but I guess he didn't think I was so serious about the issue. When the cost of the class came up he was surprised and hesitant to agree to this. He said it is ultimately my decision, but for some reason the whole discussion triggered an emotional meltdown! I started bawling, saying I might as well just plan on getting an epidural since I have no support on going unmedicated. Sorry for the rambling, I guess I just needed to vent to people who might understand more.
