You avoid alcoholic beverages, drugs, many women try to quit smoking or at least cut back. Many women are even careful about what they eat and drink. There's a whole list of what's okay and what's not and many women do what they can to follow it without changing their lives too dramatically, right?
So then, why is it that so many women are okay with suddenly being injected with drugs on the moment of delivery? I'm not bashing, i'm just trying to understand why it's not okay to put yours or the babies health at risk all through the pregnancy, but all that changes during labor.
I understand that labor is painful. But I think most women would DIE for their children ...so ...why is an epi or other drugs during labor okay?
(note: this question does not include women who have medical reasons)

There are studies that suggest that the increased use of the epi might be correlated with a higher risk of drug addiction. here's a link.
