Vaginal (yes I said it), and both my girls were too. I won't go into it here, don't think most people want to know about it ;)
My brother was a section though because my mom's OB was one of the many who didn't deliver breech babies. She says she much preferred vaginal delivery to cesarean.

As far as I want to think about it, the stork brought me...

I was born naturally and without drugs, but all three of my births were c-sections. Having seen several births during my time as a nursing student, I think I got a better deal than my mother.

When a sperm met an egg.

Midwife, natural birth, at home.

Natural, but I should have been a c-section. My dear mother almost died pushing out a 10 lb 13 oz baby, and sustained permanent damage downstairs, I believe. I'm sorry, Mom. :-/

Strangely, my brothers always told me that my parents found me on the side of the road. Hmmm

My brothers told me our crazy neighbors were my real parents but they didn't want me.

I believe it was a natural birth. I remember watching my birth video a few years back. Yuck.

Oh wow. No one wants to see that. I didn't even want to watch it myself. "Do you want a mirror? She's crowning." "NOOOO" haha.

I dunno, I'm gonna say mine was just gross. There was vomit and poop and pushing and forceps and surgery and bleeding and a 3 week NICU stay... Made me seriously consider whether I ever want another one!!

Ouch. ):
This is one of many reasons I give women so much credit.

Oh wow. I bitch enough about mine but it was free of poop and puke. Just blood and pain. Haha. 26 hours of drug free agony, but I had no problems delivering, just the episiotomy, no forceps or issues. And a healthy screaming baby, ha.

In dramatic narrative form. The young woman waddled up to the admitting desk, her distended belly preventing her from getting within 5 feet of it. The nurse peeked over the counter, marveling at the flesh-colored boats attached to each ankle.

"Nurse!" the young girl cried, a hand to her feverish brow. "I have an appointment to be induced on the third floor. Please summon your strongest and most attractive male nurses to carry me there, as I have a soul-gripping phobia of elevators!"
