Maybe her mother had seen it work more time then not that way... a lady getting her PhD would go au natural IMO... if you know what I mean
I think there is time and a place for epi's and I would say in your case it was needed. If the labor is really long or the mom is nervous/stressed about something or even if her blood pressure is really high and epi is a great thing. Sometimes all the mom needs is to relax and let her body work.

But in my friend's case I don't think that's the best idea.

At least not without a trial of labor.

Thank you Kiliki for my wonderfull siggie!
