I think with an epidural, that the risk is greater for you than for your child. The important thing about this question, though, is that your mother in law is trying to control things. Give her an inch and she'll take a mile. Don't let her make you second-guess yourself. You're having this baby with your husband, not her. Don't allow her to think it's her decision to make.
