First and foremost, I don't want to turn this into a debate. Everyone's birth is personal to them, and the way they choose to do it is their own.
What pain management techniques are you planning to use at your birth? Breathing, accupuncture, hypnosis, epidural, spinal block, pain killers, or something else?
BTDT moms, what have you used in the past, and what was your experience?
I am researching the medical options right now. I don't really want an epidural, but I do think I will want some kind of intervention, and I want to be prepared with what options I am and am not okay with.
