I was wanting to hear from people who have used either or both peth and epi during labor. Specifically I'm interested in learning which is more Calmative. I am not really concerned with which gives better pain relief, just what will keep some one who suffers from anxiety, calm and functioning.
I have not used either, but I do find codeine calming which I believe is a 'cousin' to peth. I am concerned with an epi that I will not be mobile, as I've never labored in a bed, and don't want to, amongst other issues.
For those who used peth, what type of monitoring was insisted on.
Thanks in advance
