Re: Am I terrible because...

I know "they" say that the epi can interfere with bf'ing, but I don't know where that info is supposed to come from, and it sure wasn't true for me. My first (natural birth) was the one who had an agonizing time getting her to BF. My second (epi birth) latched on within 30 minutes and was a nursing champ from the start. Anecdotal, I know, but for me, the trauma of natural birth was a serious deterrent in BF'ing, whereas the peaceful entrance of my epi birth fostered an immediate attachment and a wonderful nursing relationship.

Our hospital is an hour away from our house as well. There are 4 other places we could stop on the way if there was an emergency, but it's never been a problem, and our hospital has an amazing nicu and I generally love the staff, especially my OB, so it's totally worth the drive!
