  • you would have to ask your dr what you can take or be given because most of the other things they would give you arent a longer lasting drug... and if your allergic to something then your dr would be the best person to ask ... good luck

  • Well warm water in a shower was the best for me and I know you said not natural, but that was way better then my first in which I got an epi. My second was almost orgasmic sitting in the shower with the warm water up until I felt the urge to push and then I squatted on the bed and pushed that little guy out in 2 pushes.

  • Stadol, it was HORRID. I will be doing it natural this time, I'm allergic to stadol and because of the reaction I had I ended up getting an epidural.

  • I am allergic to one of the medications used in common epidurals. my anasthesiologist was actually able to reformulate it so that I could still receiver one. it worked wonderfully! Ask for an anasthesia consult prior to going into labor if you are still interested in getting one. Good luck!
