(Sorry guys but this subject is really targeted to all the ladies out there!)
I am in need of some major advice. As my labour day fast approaches I am stuck with the debate whether to have a natural birth or opt for an epidural if it is needed.
My main concerns about an epidural is that I hear it slows down labour and I have heard (not sure if it is true or not) that if you get an epidural it increases your risk of having a c-section. I want to minimize the chances of having a c-section for faster recovery time but am unsure if I can bare the pain that a natural labour would entail.
HELP!! I need advice and stories from what you all encountered during labour. Did you opt for an epidural? Did you have a natural birth? Did you have a c-section with or without an epidural?
Hearing your stories and experiences may help calm my nerves and help me out with a decision once the time comes. If you’re willing to share, I would love to hear!
Until next time,
