Epidural vs Natural Pain

Mya • Mommie to be ❤️ Blessed with a baby boy. ??
Okay sooo, I'm so freaking scared to get the epidural because I have heard so maaaaany negative things about it that I don't even wanna risk getting it. I wanted to have a natural birth but what if I can't take the pain and give in? This is my first child and I'm so afraid of labor. What should I do? Should I stick to having him natural? Or get the epidural, if you have experienced the epidural or natural please comment your expierence!!
