I was wondering, who thought of using epidurals for pain medication during vaginal childbirth? I completely understand using it for c-sections and for other surgeries but I don't understand the point of using it for vaginal childbirth since it really is not needed, it's just for pain relief for something us women are built to do, even though I'm sure that some situations really do call for it. I mean no disrespect for those who chose the epidural, this is just my point of view and I was wondering how others felt about it because most women I've met have had epidurals and not given natural childbirth a chance.

So sorry we are not all as perfect as you are. I was induced due to preeclampsia, and taking FOREVER to dilate. If not for the epi which helped me along, I might have had to have a c-section. Not all women want a natural birth. I was going to have an epi even if I wasn't induced... I see no reason in this day and age to be a martyr!! It's a personal choice, and no one else's business but the Mom & the docs!!
