I got an epidural and it didn’t end up working. For me personally by the time I was at the I need an epidural point I was almost done. I think it all depends on your body and how you tolerate pain.
No epidural x 3
I had an epidural and honestly it was the worst part of my labor
I felt them giving it to me and kept moving because of the pain I’m two month postpartum and have the worst pain in my back
Really? Why was it the worst part?
I had no epidural and I'm so glad! I felt a ton of intense pressure but it wasn't the worst pain I'd ever felt. And my baby came out super alert and latched well, I think because of no anesthesia.
I had excruciating back labour so as soon as I hit 4cm I begged my midwives for an epidural. I knew going in I’d want one and it was in my birth plan. 41 hours later after progressing slowly and even losing a cm I was given an emergency c section and I am so glad I got that epidural because I cannot imagine trying and failing to dilate fully without it.
The only issues I had after was the itching. I also had a catheter so I couldn’t get up for the first 36 hours after surgery.
