She said the other pain relief method they have is a TENS machine and it doesnt work for everyone but I can try it if I want. I'm going for a water birth so will see.
I have never heard of the water shots. I'm not a needle person, and injecting things into my body just freaks me out in general so I'd have to pass

We tried the TENS machine at my first homebirth and I wasn't into it. It's hit or miss on who loves it and who doesn't. I felt like I was being statically shocked every few second on my back and you can't use it in the water unless you're into that whole electrocution things
