i delivered pin naturally w/o epi.
for me, i have a high threshold of pain, so not a prob to me.
but gotta admit, its really quite bad.
but not really pain, it's more like a "suan" kinda feeling. like freaking bad menstrual cramps.
but personally, i feel that gg thru labour is part of the process of having a kid, to know how it really feels to be preg n then giving birth to the child itself, thus i opt not to take epidural.
