  • I'm not in your area but I would suggest joining Natural Pregnancy and Birth because there are probably women there who will know.

    As far as easing the pain it DOES work. In fact it's called the "midwives epidural."

    I would suggest looking into CNMs in your area that deliver in hospital if your set on a hospital birth because it is very rare to find a doctor willing to do one. Also look into local birthing centers.

    AND check out Hypnobabies. I can see that your going into your delivery expecting pain. If you go into expecting a good experience instead of crimpling pain like many women in America do you will have a much better and less painful experiance.
