Natalie's first baby was a hospital birth with an epidural that she describes as awful, and it ended up with a bad episiotomy.  Six weeks postpartum she was still in awful pain; so, her OB sent her to a specialist where she discovered that she had an anal fissure from the episiotomy that was bad enough to require surgery.  She had surgery to repair that at 7 weeks postpartum.
 
Fast forward 3 years, and for her second birth, Natalie used the Bradley method with her husband and a doula for a drug free hospital birth.
 
Two years later, Natalie was pregnant with her most recent baby, and discovered she was breech at 37 weeks.  Natalie shares her experience of having a successful ECV to turn the baby at 38 weeks and then delivering drug free at the hospital one day after her due date.
