Can you really decide for an epidural or other kind of medicine ?

Can anyone explain to me how works in a hospital, from the time you enter for giving birth ?
I had my two babies in Italy, were they want only natural way, not epidural.
I'm thinking about having another baby, but I'm very afraid of the hospital.

I wanted to do a natural birth, but I had a "back birth" (the baby was facing forwards, with his back to my back), which was so excruciating that I asked for an epidural after about 2 hours of labor in the hospital. It wasn't a big deal at all, I got the epidural, and it was awesome. That is one option, wait until you decide if you feel you "need" it or not. The other option is to get it right away. You can walk in the hospital during early labor, ask for an epidural, get it, and labor the entire time with it in. There is no reason to be afraid, both natural and drugged births are normal in this country.
