    who says its competition but its interesting to know that others have done it woithout pain relief

    Re: painless childbirth

    It's weird, I've had three epidurals but never did anyone show me how the big the needle was or anything like that. It was done fairly quickly each time. And now I'm reading it is a huge needle! Lol I never knew

    I don't think anyone is being competitive.
    Just trying to let other sisters know that if you choose not to have medication during childbirth, that you can get through it.

    I also don't think(though I've heard from some sisters) the argument you stated about "C-section" isn't "proper birth" etc is what anyone is saying here either. But I do know that the risks, difficulty and problems involved during and after are very different. I always felt bad seeing ladies after a C-section walking around bent over and they can't even pick up their baby. That must be so difficult.

    well stretchmarks are unattractive too yet come with being pregnant - you just accept it and get over it.
    Agree with both. There are some who opt for C-sections as a choice, but I think they may be the minority. Most C-sections occur when there are complications in the birth. Though some occur because Dr's just like to do what's easiest and fastest for them and C-sections are 99% guaranteed in and out within a day as opposed to labor then delivery which can last for days and the Dr.s have no control over when it ends or how it turns out.

    The last giant needle I had pointed at me went straight into a bone. I'm not fond of large needles anymore lol. Maybe I'll just adopt

    I wouldn't do a csection because 1 the scar would make me less physically attractive to my husband and 2 vbac would be extremely dangerous. I would avoid cesarean at all costs.

    Actually they just passed a law here that forces doctors to wait longer to offer csections, because they said doctors just scare new mothers and use csections to rush people out of the hospital after a few hours, when human labor can naturally last two days. https://www.bostonglobe.com/lifestyl...0YP/story.html

    Do they numb it? Or would that be point less since that would be two needles than?

    Hopefully since people say it wears off. I'm gonna stick out the contractions nd when I'm close to pop him out I'll ask ask for a epidural. I'm terrified of it wearing off mid birth or something.

Spinal cord injuries, severe drops in blood pressure, days of possible tingling/weakness in the legs, permanent nerve damage, longer birthing and labor, much higher chance of cesarean because the nerves aren't working properly. And epidurals are made from synthetic cocaine and/or opioids and can affect the baby as well. Plus I just really don't want a needle in my back.

    second birth was natural.
    no pain relieff at all

    it was shorter as well - got to hosp and gave birth within 20mins (maybe even shorter ) ALHAMDULILLAH
    but screamed a lot.......

    i'm a weakling when it comes to pain
    LOL! @ the bolded! :rofl1:

    I had 2 with no pain relief or anything, and for reference: I cry when I stub my toe.
    But I got through it.

    It's different for everyone though.

    For me, the labor wasn't so bad but the delivery is painful. For my cousin the labor was torture but the delivery was easy.

    I never wanted any kind of pain meds because I was always afraid that they would wear off in the middle, then you're in horrible pain and didn't get the natural build up and tolerance to it that you would have without the meds. And after a certain point they can't give you any more anyway. So if it wears off before the delivery(which I've heard it usually does), then you still have to feel it without the benefit of going through the labor and being able to prepare yourself.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with taking pain meds for labor & delivery as it **IS** painful. But I just preferred not to.

    I didn't use an epidural or anything and I lived through it. I'm a weakling as well.

    But I can tell you that by the time you get to the end of the pregnancy you don't care if the baby has to come out of your nose, you just want him/her OUT! lol

    Lol!

    My mum did that with my younger sister (her first baby was due 6w before my baby). However, after seeing the complication that my sister went through cos of not having one, she allowed me to have one when it was my turn.

    My mom does say that being on your knees and holding onto things/pulling makes your back and tummy hurt less, and I'm inclined to believe that, since that is the position that Allah told Maryam(ra) to be in (he told her to grab onto the trunk of the date palm tree and pull it).

    Thanks for the site. I'll check it out nd show her.
