Re: Am I terrible because...
I never wanted a natural birth. Props to those who can birth a baby without an epi but it's not for me. I ended up laboring until 6cm drug free (not by choice) and I hated it. Once I got the epi I was really able to enjoy my labor.
I know a lot of moms have had a poor experience with an epi, but I LOVED it. I could still move my legs and feet and was totally aware, just not in excruciating pain.
It's your birth. Do what you want and don't let anyone persuade you otherwise!
