I had an epidural with my son and I really don't see myself doing it differently this time. I had a large baby who was temporarily stuck, and ended up with a tear and episiotomy when it was all said and done. I am very glad that I was pretty numb for most of it. I didn't have any side effects though and was able to breastfeed and walk around fine shortly afterwards. I think if my experience with it wouldn't have been so good, I might have more motivation to try natural.

I do think that natural is a great option for both mom and baby and really admire the moms that do it! I am sure the sense of accomplishment feels great.
