I've heard that if I need an epidural or other pain meds during labor, it can make the baby groggy and thus reduce their ability to latch on or begin breastfeeding right away....which can then make it difficult to start at all.
Has this been the case with anyone? Since I'm new to pregnancy I don't know what "facts" in the books to believe. Some say pain meds make everything more difficult, and some say there is no evidence of that. I guess I'm looking for real life examples.
