You can't plan for this, but you can do some research about all the pain medications. I had my baby 3 weeks ago and did not have a birth plan. Just be an open-minded and just go with the flow. I gave birth to my baby girl without an epidural; and I can feel the pain every single minutes. It's all depending on your pain tolerance; and the nurses and doctors are there to support you. Good luck.
Go with the epidural
Labor affects everyone differently. Once YOU go into labor, see how much pain you can take...you can always decide to get it. I know I am! :)
Hi! It really depends on how you tolerate your pain. That is why you have to make a birth plan. If you cannot tolerate pain, give it a try. I remember my friend said, she had it, but then the epidural catheter was dislodge, so she end up feeling the pain. But, on my experience, I had 3 deliveries without epidural.
