    My girlfriend went into labor and decided at first to skip any pain medication....

    Eventually the pain got worse (as expected) and she asked for something even an epidural, but the doctors said it ws too late for that option.

    If you do think you can't handle the pain, then get the epidural becuase later on you will have no option and the pain might be too much.

    There is a huge difference between narcotic pain medications and an epidural. Epidurals are localized, and there is an awful lot of research and testing done on the subject. Look into it fully, and if you think it is the thing for you, don't let others talk you out of it with bunk science.
