I had one with my first child. I hated that stupid thing. I felt it made my labor last longer and made my pushing ineffective because I could not feel anything. My back hurt for weeks and I had a headache from you know where for days. It made David very very sleepy more so than the normal sleepy 24 hours. There was a big difference between him and my 2 natural births. Could you instead if you want a natural birth look into hypnobabies? It is an amazing self hypnosis program that I found very helpful in getting me prepared for my natural birth with Everett. I am not trying to talk you out of the epi just giving an alternative.
