Hello All
I am 15 weeks with my second baby and my first is 14 months My first labor/delivery plan didn't go as planned. I only take meds when completely needed and refuse to take any during pregnancy. I went months and months of suffering severe sciatica pain and migraines during my last pregnancy without taking any meds. But then had an emergency induction at 42 weeks and got the epidural. I still feel like a failure for that.
How can I plan better this time? pain management wise? Also, we live very far away from family and I have no idea if DH will even be able to be in the hospital with me (he is my main support!) because he will be with our toddler. I had a doula last time but we are on one income now and dont know if it financially makes sense.

Thanks everyone!!!
