I had an easy labor and delivery though, and sadly opted for an epi (I didn't need one, but didn't know better). The general concensus from the ladies I have spoken to is "why would you NOT take the drugs???". Even at my LLL meetings, my take on NCB is not recipricated throughout the room. I see the desire to do a little better around here, but it just hasn't made it through yet.
I am from Blacksburg and lived in Roanoke for 4 years before moving to California I know there was a group trying to open a birth center in Roanoke but I don't know if that ever got off the ground.
