To us, having a healthy baby was more important than anything. To me natural childbirth is common sense. Having a happy and healthy baby is the most important outcome of any birth, but for me, being able to have control of my body, having trust in my body to do what it already knows how to do, was the most rewarding experience I have ever encountered. Getting an epidural or any medication for that matter was never an option for me. I went into the process with an open mind, knowing that I could do it. I personally think that is the whole battle.
Using your inner strength and your inner spirit, you can accomplish anything you want.
