I recently became nervous about having an epidural during my delivery.. I am really freaked out and have NO idea why.. I had one with my daughter a few years ago.. and everything went fine.. no side effects, went in just fine and work like magic! But, was wondering what my other pain relief options ... and if I am just overthinking this epidural thing.. or if anyone else has went thru this...????? Thanks!

  • Do some reseach and make your own decision. Epidurals can be dangerous and have side effects, for you and your baby, lasting a year or a lifetime.

  • Why not play it by ear? Go into it with an open mind, but if gets to be too much for you. you can always ask for an epi.
