Do you think all women should have to go through labour without any pain meds?

I was wondering round the site and found a woman who believes no woman should be allowed to have pain meds.

What do you think?

  • Nope, I sure don't.

    That's a personal choice and a personal right.

  • No, I think it's a personal choice. I did give birth three times without pain meds because it was the birth experience I wanted to have, but I think we are lucky to live in an age where pain relief is available and other moms should be able to give informed consent to pain relief if that is their desire.

  • Absolutely not! It is a woman's right to be as comfortable as she wants to be during labor...and if that means pain meds than so be it. That's like saying no woman should be allowed to have their baby anywhere but in a hospital. It is the mother's choice and birth plan. I'd like her to come try and tell me what to do while I'm in labor. She'll get knocked out!

  • No I think each and every labor and woman are different. I think that it's there choice along with their doctor's. I had 3 natural births with no pain meds but I also had short labor and delivery.

  • I wanted to be able to deliver my son but my cervix is too scarred from cancer so I had a c-section. I prefer drugs thanks. LOL. I don't think I could manage having this next baby without them. C-sections are a must for me.
