I was at a friends baby shower the other week and we got talking about labour etc my friend mentioned she would be definitely getting an epidural (it's her second baby) a friend of hers (with 2 kids) quite nastily said to her "oh why would you do that?!?! you're such a girl, just go natural like I did" I was gob smacked and it got me wondering if most people who haven't had an epidural feel this way? Does it make them feel more empowered than women who have an epidural? (genuine question)
Just got me wondering people's thoughts on this, cos I had never heard a comment like that before!
