Yep. Especially when they miss the first time and have to try again.....



Granted, it was much better than feeling them cut me open (c-section), but I had severe back pains that were more painful and took longer to recover from than the c-section recovery.



My FIRST time getting an epi placed wasn't that bad at all, but be aware there can be complications.

Yeah it hurts but the idea of not having any pain afterwards makes it worth while and bearable.

I got mine after being in labor for about 5 hours, I didn't even feel them put it in however I think it's because I didn't see the needle.
