Thanks for those Shorty! :thnk :thnk :thnk Really good to see how you can still push even with an epidural - always wondered how that worked!

Couldn't watch that - as my sister says there is a reason you can't see down there.....

Just watched the labour video - those birth balls look the business! I've only ever been flat on my back. Do hospitals provide those? Or can you use one of those exercise balls? Are they the same thing?

God, I don't know...maybe the birthing balls aren't so hard?

I didn't think those vids were too bad - did you notice none of the women tore or needed to be cut? Was good to see they weren't all waxed like plucked turkeys too! :o0

I noticed the clean as a turkey look.God why do people make like so awkard for us all, we should set a trend ,"hairy who-has" for labour. I had the strep b test and my god i was strangled tidying up down there. fecks sake the things we do. Shorty emotions are great when the lingo just won't come. :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0
