Post subject: What is The Best Pain Relief To Use when Giving Birth
im 19 & have just found out im having my first child. Although im only a few weeks pregnant i have been thinking alot about giving birth!
I have had some advice from family member but would like some advice if possible.
Has anyone on here had an epidural before && are these dangerous.

Hi katie I had an epidural wiv my son and its a needle goin in2 ur spine so of course there are some risks but these guys do it every day 4 their job so they do know what they r doing!!!!!!!!
I was in the middle of giving birth and it did waer off a bit but they just topped it up and it was fine I had 2 have 2 cathators while i had `the epidural in so that gave me a water infection that lasted 2 weks and was really bad But im glad i had it done but wished i could of done without it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope this dont scare u 2 much and dont 4get everyones experiences r different

i had my first baby when i was 19 and i had an epidural which in my experience was the worst thing i could have done, the drip they gave me with it made my labia (my nether regions) swell up and as a result i tore quite badly whilst giving birth i had my youngest son with just gas and air and it was a much better experience all round i was much more in control and could try different postions to try and give birth in.. he weighed 9lb 10 ozs and i didnt need stitches ..
