Got me through it!
I was having really painful back labor due to a posterior baby. I wanted a drug free birth so my midwife gave me sterile water injections so I could rest. After many hours of laboring, I began to ask for an epidural regardless of my birth plan. Instead, she convinced me to sit in the tub & recommended to breathe low, etc. As my baby was crowning, she asked one of the nurses to open the blinds so we could all see the beautiful sunset! She has such a calming effect that I needed, I was so grateful that she was there to deliver my baby!
