for the mommies the had epi's

did you have a regular one or a steady drip?

I was fortunate enough to get a steady drip but am afraid that since I will be delivering at a different hospital that if I have one I won't be fortunate and blessed with one

  • I didn't know there were 2 different kinds.
    The cathitor was placed in my back and I think it was a steady dose, but I also had the button for an extra "oomp" just in case I needed it.
    My epi SUCKED and I used the button alot.
    With my son - 8 years ago - I had the epi, it worked GREAT and I did not have a push buttton thingy, but that was a different hospital

  • I had a steady drip, but it only worked on one side so when I had to have my emergancy c section they had to REDO it and it sucked. I hated the whole epi experience. The only reason I got it was because I hadn't progressed after 60 hours of labor! After I had the epi and everything relaxed I dilated in no time flat.
