Using epidural during labor

I don't think I was the epidural itself so much as drugs in general for me. I will say, I was missing the epidural effect during this last labors pain


I actually write a birth plan for every baby (cause it's all an issue of precision and timing) that requires an epidural by the 4th centimeter of dilation and no other drugs during labor

if the epidural is administrated properly and in correct amounts, it aids in the way labor and delivery SHOULD be.


I had epidurals with both deliveries and would never do it any other way. From 4cm (technically in labor by drs standards) both of my deliveries were less than 4 hours long.
