Henrik Russell + birth story
For the 3 people who still read this blog and the 1 person who wants to know, I was induced at 41 weeks exactly (due to concerns regarding gestational diabetes), and had a natural birth without epidural. I did get a little something through my IV 5 minutes before he was born, which had no effect whatesover! So it wasn't 100% unmedicated, but I really only cared about avoiding epidural. I did not need stitches and recovered quickly. I can now independently confirm that pitocin transition labor hurts more than spontaneous transition labor. So. There you are.
