How bad is childbirth... really?
I have ZERO interest in natural childbirth. ZERO. None. I will not do that.
I want all the medication and epidurals possible.
How awful is a first time MEDICATED childbirth?
Is it an absolute nightmare, even with meds and epidural?
Do you feel like you're being hit by a semi truck? A terrible flu level of pain? Or is it not as awful with epidural and pain meds?
I know everyone says "one you see the baby, it's worth it." Sure, but just how PAINFUL is a medicated childbirth during the process? Is it so painful it's traumatic? Is it unbearable and so painful you feel like you won't make it? Is it somehow not so bad?
Does the medication help enough that it's not the worst pain of your life?
