I've delivered 3 children without any pain medication. (even one where I had to have pitocin). I'm pregnant now with my fourth and being that I'm a bit older this time (36...my youngest child is 7) I'm considering an epidural. I've always had a fear of needles in my back and the longer recovery time. However, I've had several friends say they wouldn't go through labor again without one. I'd love to hear from Moms who have done it both ways and get comments and stories.
