I have for both my children and plan on doing that with my third. My first, I was induced because his heart rate was dropping way to fast. They offered me an epidural, but I refused. They broke my water and I was in agonizing pain and to boot I was only 19 and had no idea what to expect. They gave me some kind of shot to cut the "tips" of my contractions. I don't want to scare you, I am just telling you the truth of my story. The second pregnancy I had I was 8 years later and I had her all natural, no complications and no medications. I was fine and I was in significantly less pain than before. I had a wonderful experience. Yes, I still had pain, but it was managable.
