    Yes I had an Epi with my first....he was breeched the whole birth. I wanted to try and have him natural and we will see what our next kid will bring...5 years from now.

    Yes, and luckily she was a quick labor so I didn't even have time for an epi

    Both births were NATURAL one the MEDICATION (epidural) didn't really work, but with the second one the MEDICATION (epidural) worked fabulously and because my first was a fairly quick process (less than 12 hours from the first sign of labor)...I got my epi right away and my second son was born 4 hours after my water broke at home!

    I did, I was in back labor so the pain was horrible.  I opted for the epidural from the get-go because I have panic attacks and asthma and I  was afraid of me freaking out.  Well I got the epidural and it didn't hold.  So since I was able to go through all of that (I was a hair away from having an emergency c-section because my water was broken for 24 hours by the time my son was born) I want to try to go for an all natural birth next time.

    Yes, I chose an epidural with my first and then chose a natural birth with my second. I preferred without that epidural so I had my third natural as well
