Unmedicated Hospital Birth

Shanicia was 38 weeks and 5 days pregnant when she went into labor. Just one day prior she and her daughter’s father went to her mother’s house to go to the state fair. She felt she was so over being pregnant, that she decided to walk the baby out. She went into labor early that morning around 2 AM. Shanicia slept through most of her labor and the next morning she drove the two hours back to her home city, Atlanta. She stayed home until 7 PM, then labored without medication at the hospital before giving birth.
