Well, I think that not only every woman, but every pregnancy and labor and delivery, different. For me, labor was hands down the most pain I have ever been in.
Even so, I was in a hospital (insurance reasons) and never even once thought about getting pain meds because I wanted a natural birth so badly and had prepared as best I could for the pain of labor. I think the more you know about labor, the less scary it is. I think fear makes pain a million times worse.
If it were me, I would research and assess my options. I agree with Bobbity Boo that you may find the desire for a natural childbirth outweighs the concern of not having pain meds immediately available.
