Pretty normal here. I called in to schedule my pre-admit at the hospital this week. The lady said it would take an hour, and 20 min of that would be watching the epidural video. I asked her if we had to watch it if we were not having one. She said, "what do you mean, like, at all?"...lol. I said yeah. She said, "a lot of first time moms say that but they all get them, so the video is useful". I told her I am having my 3rd and made it through my last with 8 hr of max dose pit and no epi, do I am sure that short of cutting the baby out without one, that I will need one, lol. She backed off and just told me it was mandatory. I just said ok and let it go. But her first comment made me laugh.
