Others would tell me that an epidural was the only way to go.  Why prove my womanhood by going through so much pain?

If I had heard about this other birthing method while pregnant, I doubt I would have chosen this approach. Alicia Silverstone blogs about it over at her site The Kind Life. Honestly, having an orgasm while delivering my male child isn’t how I want to remember him coming into the world.  However this approach might appeal to a few of you — after all, why not have a little pleasure while you’re hyperventilating while pushing for your’s and your baby’s lives.

However if an orgasmic birth isn’t for you, then here’s a list of 12 methods that might be an option for you.
