Getting an epidural in labor is a personal choice. I am going to give you the reasons I chose to get one that you may not have considered.
As an OB, I have this conversation often, so I thought it could be useful to the masses (or at least the 10 people who might read it).
First time mamas: be forewarned, I am discussing topics that may freak you out if you haven’t heard about them already.
That smile is at the peak of a contraction. Zero pain.
Bonus! The nap after an epidural is glorious. Labor is exhausting, so that rest can be really helpful! Both my husband and I were very disappointed we missed out on this bonus with baby #3. Good thing he’s cute.
