I agree, it should be a strongly encouraged option. But with the agony of 23 hours of back labor, I really really welcomed the epidural. I mean, really.


I had back labor with Steph, and this book had lots of suggestions for managing contractions with back labor -- I wish I'd at least known about these strategies so I could give them a try before succumbing to the epidural! As soon as I got the epidural, I spiked a fever (a common complication), which set in motion a whole series of further interventions.... :-(
