    First one, no. Not at all. Second one yes.

    Personally, I would explore other forms of pain management techniques before I would do another epidural again. I have residual back issues from my second epi. I'm not saying don't do it, and I'm not saying you would have any problems, because most people don't. I, however, didn't know I had alternative options, and had I known that, I might have made a different choice.

    My advice is always to keep every option on the table, don't say "I would never do XYZ." Just make informed, educated choices.

      I had three natural births and one epidural birth. I think the contractions hurt more than the epidural did and I barely noticed the needle. I was very happy with my epidural. I had the epidural during my third labor.

      The third labor was so much more painful then the first two. It was excruciating pain and I can't handle it after many hours of labor.
