Unmedicated

A happy haze: The birth of David

"Around midnight I felt the contractions become a little more intense, and they were getting closer together. I woke up my partner, and we timed them. They were coming every five minutes, just like the doctor said."

The fast lane: The birth of Magnus

"They shuttled me up the the delivery room, and I was pushing as soon as they had me set up. I thought the contractions leading up to this were bad, (and was swearing at myself for deciding on a natural birth) but they were nothing compared to the pushing."

A gut feeling: The birth of Clarence

"The dispatcher said, 'Don't push the baby out until they come!' This sounds crazy, but when she said that, I began panicking. The baby was coming?! I guess their experience taught them that my voice was telling."
