    Have you ever had an epi??

    I have, and it didn't work in the slightest. Didn't believe them when they said they had already inserted it

    So I was still "flailing (sic) around an wailing"

    She also actually says that she cant feel anything and then in the next breath goes on to screech like a turkey getting its head hacked off... I just dont buy that it was necessary. Yes we all have different ways of coping i know this but I just dont buy hers.

    Ha, well I went into transition in the hospital carpark (they'd sent me for a walk to get things going) and screamed my head off so loud they heard me in Maternity and sent a middie running out, she met me at the door with a wheelchair! I reckon I frightened the maternity patients, the general patients, the visitors, and half the surrounding populace. And guess what? I didn't give a rat's bum

    Labour hurts like a mofo and if you can't scream then, when can you?!

    Yes I have, I had one at the 24th hour of a very traumatic and painful birth

    EXACTLY. She was saying she was numb. She was saying she couldn't feel anything but continued to scream. FFS I had my epi then ate a banana haha...maybe should have played on it a bit more and got sympathy? haha.

    I really felt for that poor woman. She seemed so scared.
    I made noise with both of my vbacs, especially pushing out ds2 because apart from a bit of gas it was drug free. Plus I was scared because it was quite fast, one moment it was irregular, then with each contraction it got more and more painful with not much of a build up.

    I thought they turned epis down/off when it comes time to push to ensure the mother can push effectively?

    When I was in labour, I was deadly quiet (terrified) and the midwife kept encouraging me to make noise.

    I eventually had an epidural, but could still feel contractions on one side but no feeling at all for pushing.

    Anyway, I don't think I would have the stomach for this show, so haven't watched it.

    Not always, they didn't with me because I was in terrible pain. DS was coming out wrong, was posterior and my cervix had swollen and torn. So was probably best that I couldn't feel anything.

    They probably just wanted that woman to stfu though haha.

    I think some women are built to withstand the pain of childbirth and others aren't - a good friend of mine would go on a morphine drip for period pain if she could whereas I gave birth twice with absolutely no pain relief besides the shower/bath.
    Each to their own really.

    Perhaps they need a soundproof room for the screamers.
