For you mothers who have used the epidural and for those who have not, which method do you think is best? I wasn't able to have an epidural with my first pregnancy but I am able to this time around but I kind of have this fear of being paralyzed. Does it really feel like you are paralyzed? and how long does it usually last after the delivery? Has any one ever done it both ways?Answer Question

I did not have medicated births and my experiences were exhilarating, fun, amazing... I wouldn't do it any other way!! :-D
I can't imagine lying down for childbirth~ not to mention the many other great risks that come with epidurals... Being free to do whatever I needed to do was extremely important to help me cope. Besides, with my waterbirths, I had very (!!) little pain while submerged.
There are many things moms can do that are safer and really satisfying.
