I dont want to start a war, and I am not bashing anyone for wanting to get meds during delievery. But my best friend went in to be induced with her second child (the first time she got the epi), well she wanted it again, and this time it didnt take. She had to labor with no meds, and didnt really know how to handle the pain. I am planning a natural birth this time, and so I have already looked into breathing techniques to help me. I just think it is a good idea for all moms to look into breathing techniques to help with labor just incase this happens to you too.
