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.

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.
