Hi everyone, I've just recently started researching about natural childbirth and have a really "newbie" question... forgive me for how shallow it may seem...
With my first baby I had an epidural and following the delivery I had to have quite a lot of stitching up because my daughter came bursting out so fast and my lovely doctor didn't slow her/me down enough. I couldn't feel any of the sewing up process because I was numb from the epidural. So my question is- If I decide that I'm going to have my next baby natural and I do end up having to have stitches won't it be painful to either feel that sewing or to have to have numbing shots before being stitched? I know that having my next baby natural may, in itself, prevent me from having to be stitched... but still wondering how that would work if I did.
I really am almost 99% sure I want to have my next baby natural- but I'm a little nervous about the stitches and deliverying the placenta afterward.
Would love to hear your thoughts! Thanks so much! I'm excited to keep reading and learning all I can.
