In fact, back when I had the boys very few women had epidurals. During my pregnancy the doctors would ask if I was interested in it but always discouraged its use. Now a days I hear that 90 percent of women have epidurals!

My opinion: Make a plan ahead of time of your ideal labor. Then go into your labor with a totally open mind and expect that things will not go as planned. And really in the end what matters is you have your baby to hold and love forever!

Oh, I did have demoral as a pain medicine during my oldest sons birth but it just made me throw up the whole time. It was horrible!
