My Dad is determined to talk me out of an epi. He just called asking me about how I plan on going about my birthing experience. I told him, I didn't know, because I have never had a baby, and I plan on just going with the flow of what my Dr, SO, and I feel is best and safest for me and LO.
He then proceeded to tell me how my Mother, Step-Mother, and his COWS do it naturally. And how I should refuse any medication, especially the epi during birth.
1. My mother only had ONE natural childbirth, she had drugs with me (for her credit they had worn off by the time she gave birth, but helped her sleep)
2. My step-mother almost gave birth in the car because she had no idea she was in labor. And she got asked for drugs but it was too late.
3. I'm not a COW.
I told him thanks for the advice.... But I really wanted to yell at him, lol.
