  • You don't need that, have an unassisted birth.

  • No birth center, unless it is located INSIDE a hospital, will have epidurals available. You ahve to go to the hospital for that.

  • Epidurals are NOT natural. Go with a home birth if you want the closest thing to natural. Hospital births are dangerous. My daughter almost died due to sepsis from MRSA... and I even had a midwife!
    An epidural requires an anesthesiologist, and they don't work in birth centers. If you must have the epidural, then go to the hospital, if not... then defiantly have a home birth with a midwife.
