Natural childbirth is not something that anyone wants or hopes for personally. For those women who want to experience a natural or unmedicated birth, the ability to hear or read stories from other women can be very beneficial. It can really help increase confidence and build them up. These natural childbirth birth stories have been graciously sent by our readers so that you may share their experiences, and gain knowledge of alternatives and practices.

Each story has a few words of text near it to help you identify elements that perhaps you can identify with for your own story. This is designed to make it easier for your to read the stories and we hope you enjoy the stories!

Once you have read stories and gathered information, consider how to expand your knowledge base. Do you have a good childbirth class under your belt? Have you read any great books on pregnancy? Do you watch videos about natural childbirth? What about practicing relaxation and labor positions? Have you hired a doula? These can all help you prepare for your upcoming birth.
