Arrow Re: Pain Medications for Labor

Between 90 and 94% of women choose a pain medication these days. It is most beneficial to any healthy woman and baby to not choose any drug. Pain is part of the process and having drugs and synthetic hormones in your body doesn't allow you body to do it's job as it would without the medication. You are also not experiencing pain continuously throughout the labor process, you have breaks between the contractions to relax. I just wanted to put this OPTION out there as well!
