Re: Pain Medications for Labor

I am 35 weeks and dh and I have decided to try to go as long as I can without any pain meds. We have said that if I need something for pain that I will try a shot or something like that. I plan on breastfeeding and had a class for that a while back and they showed a video of different senarios with pain meds or no pain meds and we would love to see our little girl "crawl" to the nipple right after being born (it is possible I saw it happen). If I have to have ANY pain meds she wont be able to do that because she will be too sleepy. We decided that if it really comes down to me not getting any relief with other methods I will go ahead and get an epi (would like to try with out).
