@hi hartime, usually i think to ease normal delivery epidural is given. I had complete labour pain for 5-6 hours (doctor also checked whether baby had done poop, if my baby would have done poop tehn c-sec was the option), after rounds of checkup when doctor confirmed about mouth was open, epidural was given to me and then i delivered normally. thats y i said its totally about the understanding, chemistry between doctor and expecting mother. Its how your doc deals with it. Hope this helps dear.

My doc had explained me the details of epidural and i did opt for it. It definitely helped in a smooth normal delivery. I did have a persistent backache after delivery but that was due to work stress. Changing my routine, resting and a daily massage helped me get rid of the back pain completely. Im back to my old self now... Do not worry abt any side effects of epidual cause as the docs say there arent any!

hi monika, decision of Epidural totally depends upon you and ur gynec. I took epidural and i am totally happy with my gynec decision as he wanted do normal delivery for me and he suggeted me epidural. I agree, some says that it causes back pain, even I consulted ortho (after delivery, but he said its totally fine as my back pain was not the result of Epidural). I am again saying taking epidural is totally your's and your gynec decision but for me it was helpful. If you are in doubt, than dont opt for it or take second opinion of any gynec. Hope this helps. Wish you good happy time. :)
