Ever heard of an elective epidural?
It's one thing a Utah lawmaker says needs to be taken away from pregnant women with Medicaid in order to help balance the state budget.

I had 3 births with no epidurls, one I was in labor for 2 days and one was induced. I also passed a kidney stone with no pain meds.
Just because Medicaid doesn't pay for it doesn't mean you can't have it. You just have to save up your $3000 or whatever is charged. That would be incentive to take childbirth classes or use a doula. Medicaid could start paying $500 for doulas and that would help the women since they aren't having epidurals and it would decrease c-section rates and increase breastfeeding rates.
