There are a lot of horror stories about the epidural, but really, I had it twice and there were no lasting effects for me, it was amazing, and my kids are fine.

Getting it at first is always stressful, because I have a big fear of needles, but the nurses are really nice, and you can't really feel anything but pressure when they do it because they numb the area first.

You will freak yourself out if you read stories on the internet about it. Just keep in mind that more people are going to post about bad epidurals than the women who had no issue at all with theirs.

If you are nervous, talk to your doctor.
