First off I would like to say that while I went natural I do not see anything wrong with having an epidural in fact I was my friends labor coach for all three of her births and was totally supportive of her getting epidurals. But it drives me crazy when women claim that because their epi "wore off" they went natural. Um, no you didn't! Just because the epi didn't make it completely pain free doesn't mean that it's "like" you went natural. If you didn't go natural then you didn't go natural!
