Wow... I am also surprised.

I am with you - number of people choosing epidural is quite low. Yay for 58% of vaginal births!!!

Those look like great statistics, Anna! I'm with you, though, at being surprised at the low number of epidurals. But, I was confused...if 58% have vaginal births, 12% have emergency c-sections, 10% have elective c-sections, and 10% have vaginal births with the use of instruments...that's only 90%! What do the other 10% do? Whatever it is, if it's not a vaginal birth, and it's not a c-section...I want to do THAT!

FYI~ I got a stork delivery with my first and he was dropped of when he was 5 1/2 so there are pluses and minuses to each method.

I bet Brandi is over the moon happy waiting for her stork delivery!

88% DO NOT have an epidural!?!? Wow, there are some tough mamas over in the UK! Will you be with the minority or majority on that one Anna?

Cool, I bet it feels empowering to have that research done on the place you are giving birth! I just watched a video today that said 76% of women have epidurals, way different!
