I was aiming for a natural childbirth, and I came very close to it being all-natural. The whole process was great until the last five minutes, but I wouldn't change anything else.

The executive summary:
17 hours of active labor
3 hours of pushing
1 push with vacuum assistance (this part was not fun)
