For me, the epidural did take away all the pain, but I had a headache for two weeks after Eliana was born that made it not worth it.

Labor did speed up after I was given the epidural. I labored for 12 hours without the epidural and only went 2 centimeters. After the epidural, I went to 10 centimeters in 4 hours, and then pushed for 2 hours. I didn't feel a thing after the epidural, but I think it's different for everyone.
