I had a natural labour with no drugs with my daughter last July. It is still fresh in my memory and i have very fond memories of that labour.
I am now pregnant with Twins due in November. I am concerned cause i have been to 2 doctors so far and they are telling me it is a requirement to have an epidural with twins.
My main concern is i wont bond with the twins as quick as i bonded with my daughter. I already feel a bit of regret because having twins so close to my daughter (she is only 10 months old), will draw my attention away from her. I also worry that i will be disappointed and have regrets if my labour doesnt go the way i hope. I understand with twin labour their is an increase risk of a c section and even the idea of an epidural and not being able to feel the labour (also i read that it can effect you natural hormones released during labour which helps with the bonding).
So my question is anyone who had an epidural or c section, did you have trouble bonding with your children?
