Wow. Thanks so much for the replies! I am surprised and a little alarmed that two more people now had the same horrific experience! I am definitely going to have to talk to my midwives about this.

I don't think it's new, but usually only midwives use it (I think) who don't administer drugs. It is an alternative to transferring to a hospital for an epidural. Apparently, some women find it really helpful and worth it, but clearly that is not the case all around.
Wife to my supportive DH and WAHM to DD Nora (06/10), DS Emerson (07/12), and baby #5 (due 5/16) and my precious babies in heaven: Bennet (died 8/15 at 12 months) and Lucy (miscarried 7/15).
