Interested in taking a survey?

Hi I am conducting research to point out potential factors that influence a woman's choice in using or not using an epidural during labor as well as the overall maternal satisfaction of women during the labor experience. If you are interested in taking this survey please send me an e-mail at and I can e-mail the survey to you.

  • My interest in having an epidural has to do with not wanting to feel them cut me open during a c-section. Call me selfish. I dont want to feel the first looooooong incision or the second loooooooong incision....grabbing and pulling inside me? I'm out. Drugs in the OR please?

  • I told my doctor when I knew I was having a c-section "I know you have a stash of the good stuff for when your family comes to the hospital. So I want my drugs to come from the special drawer. Don't worry. I have insurance and you'll get paid. I want the good shit." She just looked at me. I told her "Write it down, you'll forget. Write it down--Give Heather drugs from the stash." She and her nurses just rolled laughing.

    And during the c-section mid-wondermous drugs I asked "Do you have a vacuum cleaner in here?" She looks at me "Yes, why?" I looked at her "Ok, when you're done getting the baby out can you suck out the fat I have from the pregnancy? Insurance should cover that too." She denied me the post natal lipo. I will ask her again during this c-section too. Watch me.
