So I have always been under the impression that natural childbirth means just that, no intervention. I had a home birth with no pain medication, fetal monitoring, etc. I worked extremely hard to have the natural birth I wanted. It drives me nuts when some moms claim they have had a natural birth even though they were administered pitocin or any kind of meds other than an epidural. I thought natural meant, "the way nature intended." I don't think nature created pitocin, man did. So I want to know what you ladies think...am I right, or does natural only mean not getting the epidural?
