I hate that lady as well.. she is SO judgemental! Yeah... because all dad's force women to not have epi's! I find its the other way around, women are convincing their husbands that going without an epi is okay! Oi!

I wish she had asked what other risks there were. Of course the stupid OB lady would probably tell her they are risk free

Wow. I've seen more accurate info on Wikipedia - and we wonder why there's so much fiddling with labour! Did they find their liscences in a Cracker Jack box? The worst part is, there are people out there who will take that at face value and not do a lick of research on their own.
The Mom Show did an episode about labour with a similar attitude: Husbands should be silent, there are no heros, natural childbirth is pointless, listen to what your doctor tells you.
Makes me sick.


Turns out you really can find better info in Wikipedia. The article on epidurals is quite thorough. Perhaps the high school student who wrote that script should have headed there for research instead of his/her ***.

"It's all about healthy baby and happy mommy"?
"you won't get a gold star for pain"?

And the best "so the epidural is actually good for the baby!"

W T F?

I actually saw that when it aired (happened to flip to that channel right when it was on) and I was so disgusted. I can't stand that woman.

that was about the most ridiculous thing.....

There are negative side effects, and they can hurt, and they do not always work.

wow what a bunch of crappy propaganda. "it's just a small needle" no, actually it's HUGE. and the part about it being good for the baby is just ridiculous.

what about epi headache, back pain, not being able to feel to push, the possibility of slowing labor, etc? This show is junk!

I hate that woman! Way to neglect even talking about any of the negative side effects of an epidural, I suppose that something we're suppose to read on the 5-page consent form we are given to sign while breathing through contractions that are 3 minutes apart

that show is a price of trash. They talk WAY too much about plastic surgery and stuff like that. It's not a show about health but about the industry making money money money.

it's weird to me that bob sears is on it, coming from the sears family I wouldn't expect that, but he is far more medicalized than his parents. Guess the natural parenting apple didn't fall from that tree. not a fan of his vaccine policy either.

that dr travis isn't too bad to look at though, I think he was the first bachelor too?

Wow. Just wow.

ETA: And if I would've seen that before my deliveries with DS and DD, I might've avoided the epi. Dang, that needle is HUGE! I never saw it before getting an epi the first two times. That's how uniformed I was before.

And the whole part about how you'll have less "damage" (tearing) with the epi. That's bull, too. I had episotomies with my epidural births and no tearing at all with my NCB. What a crock.

I hate that woman. I saw one episode where she was bashing breastfeeding too because she thinks it's gross. She also was arguing that there shouldn't be breastmilk banks because formula is actually better for babies these days than breastmilk. What a load of crap.
