    Default introducing myself

    Just popping over to say hello

    My name is Allie and I'm lucky mama to Aidan (april '0 and soon to be mama to newbie due on St. Patricks day (or there abouts).

    My son came into the world with the help of an OB, and 2 shifts of nurses as well as with the help of an Epi. Now the Epi was heaven after I got it, but I didn't like the after effects at all, I had numbness in my knees for weeks and they would buckle whenever I walked, so carrying my newborn son was scary at times. I didn't like pushing laying on my back, and being told how to labour either.

    This time I'm going with Midwives and am going to work my arse off at a med free birth. I'm really excited to go the au naturel route this time, and even though I've learned soooo much from alot of the ladies on my DS's birthboard (shout outs to Emily and Jordan woot) I know I still have alot more to learn, Hopefully I'll be an expert on my vagina and all things womanly by the time baby 2 makes his/her appearance

    Welcome! I'm sorry you had the experience you did with the after-effects of the epidural. The numbness in the knees sounds scary. I didn't have anything unusual after my epidural birth, but my recovery after my natural birth was so easy. I loved it.

    I hope you find this board helpful as you prepare, I know I did.
