So this is a hypothetical question...if you are having a VAGINAL delivery and an epidural wasn't available either due to not being used anymore, being illegal or whatever, what would you do for pain relief?
Just honestly curious since I see so many women claim they cannot labor without one. I personally will never get one but that is because I understand the risks all too well and have way too many back problems already.

I have had five children all without any medication. All you can do is try to relax and breath through the pain. Do the things that they teach in Lamaze or the Bradly method. Also stay focused on the end result ,a beautiful baby, and know once that baby is out the pain will be gone.
