Who has seen it or read it? Talking all about how more and more women are choosing drugs to have their babies. And "dispelling" myths about epidurals and how they don't stall labor and blah, blah, blah. So because "more and more women are choosing epidurals" how does that fit in with a 30% c-section rate nationwide? And it even said that in a hospital 50% get an epidural. Well what about the other 50% that are trying to fight the system and some how are able to go natural in a hospital? Or a percentage that is bullied into getting one? Not to mention those who avoid the hospitals altogether so they don't have to deal with its crap? They don't seem to want to mention the statistics of those who birth outside of a hospital be it birth center or home. Ugh. Its articles like this that make more women opt for drugs because the epidural is "less" scary than natural birth. Lack of education again and again and some stupid study done about epidurals not stalling labor.

Which by the way, I finally found in my state the only free standing birth center is about 20 minutes away! YAY! Which still may be too far from where I live seeing that my labors are fast, but we hope to be moved closer to the city anyway by the time we have another one. AND we have the option to go with one of the insurance companies that will cover it! It might just happen and I would LOVE it! I could have my water birth with the next one.

I was just stunned by the fact that it said that epidurals do not have a higher chance of leading to a C-section, actually there is LESS chance of a section when compared to a medicated labour??!!!!!!
How about comparing it TO A NATURAL LABOUR???? Now there's a thought!
