I think that NCB advocates are doing a huge disservice to women if all they say is "don't get the epidural!" I haven't seen even one mention in this thread of other pain relief techniques. Women get the epidural because labor HURTS, so if you want to help women avoid the epi-->pit-->failure to progress-->c-section cascade, IMHO, you should be out there advocating other pain relief methods instead of just telling women to "go natural."

OK, so my post got removed because I'm not supposed to advertise my business, but if you want to see me at Urban Harvest, I've got curly hair and glasses and I'll be running the tiedye booth near the northeast corner of the market. I would love to meet any MDC folks there! Maggirayne actually met me for the first time at UH two years ago, when her 2yo was still a tiny baby in a sling and my toddler wasn't even born yet.
