Birthing au naturale at the hospital

Natural childbirth may be painful, but it is also empowering. Take it from Kimberley Farster. For the births of both her kids, she used yoga breathing and acupressure instead of pain meds.

She learned about these options, as well as techniques for helping her babies come on their own time, from the Nurse-Midwives at Swedish Covenant Hospital.  Before hand, she felt good about birthing naturally, while still having access to the latest medical expertise, medicine and technology, should she need it. Afterward, she felt physically and emotionally fantastic. And today she is spreading the word.

Kimberley recently shared her birthing success story with Parents.com.  Check out the link and then chime in with your take on natural childbirth.

For you moms out there who have done it, what worked for you?
