pain relief for child birth?
I am really scared about the birth of my baby. i have a long long way to go yet as i have only figured out that im 5weeks but i was just wanting information on the pain relief available to me and what is most effective. i am a huge weakling and my threshhold for pain is limited. Does the epidural hurt? but is it worth it, if it completley numbs all the pain.
The epidural does hurt. It make me personally feel light headed and slightly nauseated. While they do it it kinda feels like a bee is stinging you right in your spinal cord. But it’s only a few seconds of discomfort for hours and hours of pain relief. Otherwise you’re in pain for hours and hours… and hours! Other stuff you get through your IV but it’ll go into your baby’s system too and he/she could be born very sleepy and medicated. And IV meds don’t really take the pain away, they just kinda take the edge off a LITTLE. If you want something good, the epidural is the way to go.
