The last time you delivered, did the hospital staff micromanage your delivery or did they let you go through it how you wanted until their intervention was required?
I was pretty much left alone which was fine with me until I got to the delivery stage. I had the initial and final cervical check and 20 minutes of being monitored in the bed and the rest of the time I was walking (very slowly). I don't know how people can stay in bed if they don't have an epidural because contractions while I was laying there being monitored were unbareable because I couldn't move!
Reading other people's experiences makes me wonder what will happen this time as they talk about the hospital staff trying to make their labour fit into what the hospital staff wanted to do.
