I put this in Romantic Relationships because I didn't know where else it could go. Besides, the reason I'm pregnant is because my relationship got me this way!
So, when I gave birth over six years to my daughter, I wanted to go natural, but still wanted to be in a hospital setting. Long story short, after 16 hours and only 3 cm, they gave me an epidural.
Now that I am half way through this pregnancy, I am putting together my birth plan with my husband, and we just saw the documentary, "The Business of Giving Birth" by Ricki Lake. I knew most of the info presented already, but watching it now, pregnant and with my husband, it affected me all over again. So much that we are considering a home birth with a midwife.
I was wondering what the Turkish take on all this is.
I can explain more about WHY I feel this way if you want to discuss, but I thought I'd start off with my question right away.
