Labour and, um…….. sex?

26 weeks pregnant today, which means in about 6-8 weeks I’ll be having the discussion with my doctors about exactly what to expect in Labour and discuss my options. To be fair I’ve been thinking about this ever since I decided I wanted a baby. Do I go drug free, or do I get all the drugs in the world? Do I ask for a caesarean section or try to give birth vaginally? There’s so much to think about!

It something the ladies on my online support group have been talking about for a few weeks now, and this morning was no different, until a lady shared a link that was given to her by a friend. It’s all about having a sensual birth, and well, using your orgasm as a pain relief method. Yeah, you read right.

Personally I cannot wait till I got into labour, because it means I’m one step closer to meeting Flump and getting to finally meet my baby! I also believe that the act of birth is a pretty amazing thing, the experience of a baby being born is really awesome and they say that once you hold your baby the pain of the labour and delivery just disappears.

That said, after watching some of the midwife/pregnancy/childbirth documentaries, labour looks horrendous and painful and I’m glad that it’s already decided that I’m having a low dose epidural, because, OUCH! What I’m definitely NOT having during labour is any kind of sexual activity, because, WHAT?!?

So tell me ladies, what kind of pain relief are you going for when you have your babies? No Drugs? Gas and Air? Epidural? Masturbation?!
