I had an epidural and gas the first time giving birth but everything happened so fast I don't think the epidural hit it, I am thinking of using just the gas this time, due 9th Sept, any advice??

  • I don't think they give gas any more. Epidurals are nice if given properly & in time. GL

  • Did you give birth to your first child in 1955?

  • Are you mistaking an oxygen mask for "gas"?

  • We don't really offer that in the U.S., so I'm assuming you're from another country. If it worked for you last time, I say go for it! Epidurals have a lot of potential risks so it'd be nice to eliminate the possibility of those and you'll be able to be up and around so much faster after baby's born without one. Plus it'll be easier to pee sooner, lol. That's actually a really important part of your early recovery period!
