It's going to be for me more than anyone else, to help me stick to my decisions. I will put on it that I want to go completely natural, with no interference. I don't want to be induced unless it's necessary. Of course, I want LO to be out as safely as possible, and if that means I have to have an induction, episiotomy, c-section, etc, then I will.
I know a lot of ladies on here will tell me I'm wasting my time for writing one because everything changes, you have to go with the flow, what if something happens, etc. I know all of this, but the hospital I go to likes to do inductions and c-sections like it's cool. Out of 7 of my friends, friends of friends, and co-workers who have had babies in the past year or so, only one of them got to go natural. The only reason they didn't try and interfere was because her labor went so quick. She was in labor for a total of three hours, and was only at the hospital for 45 minutes before her baby was there. Three were c-sections and three were induced. And of those three who were induced, two of them almost had to have c-sections because they tried the vacuum and it popped off their baby's heads.
I just don't want to be bullied like my friends and co-workers were. I want LO to take her time if she needs it, and I don't want to rush anything. Any support you ladies could offer would be greatly appreciated.
