Just wanted to ask what position did you find most comfortable during labour? With my DD, I was all around the room--on the floor, leaning over the side of the bed... Although they told me at my ante-natal classes that the midwives are accomidating and will help you deliver whichever way feel most comfortable, my midwife kept trying to get me into the text book, on yer back, feet in stirrups position. I couldn't do that as my back KILLED. I actually delivered my DD leaning over the back of the bed. When I had actually given birth, it was a good 5 mins, before anyone attended to me, I was just left there with my arse in the air asking if I could move now, could I hold my baby, etc. I was the last to hold her (after her daddy, and my mother) and with THIS baby, I want to be the first. I want her placed on my chest asap. So should I try my hardest for a horizontal delivery?!
