What are/were your reasons?

For my first, I had to have a drug free birth as I was delivering with a home birth midwife. After 30 hours of labor and being stuck at 8-9cm for 6-7 of them she said we needed to transfer to the hospital and I got an epidural there. However, I was just thinking this morning that I feel like I was atypical of those who want a med free birth with my first and that I never really thought of WHY I wanted one. I just chose a provider that couldn't provide one so that was that.
