For the ladies who plan on not having an epidural during birth did you keep it as a last resort or crossed it out all together? The hospital I plan to deliver at requires all mothers wanting an epidural to talk with an anesthesiologist at 28-30 weeks, if you don’t make an appointment and go talk with them then you can’t get it. I just don’t know if i should even bother to have it as a back up because I truly don’t want it.
