hells ya! we did it! Me, who fears pain, did it! and i have been praising motherwit and the benefits of having a doula by your side since then. i curiously would not have had a natural birth with-ought them because, seriously, when that little nurse came in gleefully shouting "i have the epideral for Mrs Gray" my head shot up so fast! i say would and not could because, in retrospect, everyone can have a natural birth. but at the time i definatly would have said "yess please" if those wonderfull ladies hadent been there to tell me honestly that i was really almost there. WHOOOOOO HOOOOOO!
