I don't mind the contractions either. It's the ring of fire. SO painful.
Congratulations on your beautiful baby! He's just perfect!

Congratulations!! Midwives are so much less invasive than OBs!

If you prepare with hupnobirth techniques and a midwife beforehand you really can go to LaLa land naturally during the ring of fire.

Re: I did it au natural!

That's awesome! I was able to go natural with my older children, but I was so exhausted with my last labor that I just couldn't take the pain anymore. I'm hoping to hire a doula for the next baby to help coach me through the worst of it.
