I think natural birth is amazing! If you'd like to have a natural birth, do some research on pain management courses like Hynobabies and the Bradley method. I'd also do some research on the various pain medication options too, just in case you decide last minute, you'll know what you want. I've never had a natural birth myself (tried 2 out of 3 times), and I think it's all really a personal preference. Just be well educated about your options. I also recommend hiring a doula!
