I don't know why we have the "epidural or nothing" mindset here in Canada, but it sure seems that we do. There's no way I would go for a big needle in my spine and bad potential side effects, so I had my baby at home with no pain relief. It seems like a middle ground would be a good idea!

I've only had it after I broke my ankle, not during childbirth (I had a C-section), but I heartily recommend it for pain control and would definitely take it at childbirth if it were offered. It doesn't remove the pain; you still feel everything, but somehow you don't care so much about it and can cope.

This is a blend of nitrous oxide and oxygen to help manage pain during labor. What many women call "gas".
No, it's not commonly used all over the world. Not many US hospitals use it, that I am aware of. But many women from the UK and Australia have raved about it.
