What I mean is that I don't want to really debate this to death. Clearly there are some people here who will not see eye-to-eye with me on this one. I just try to step in for the mamas who have had epidurals and are feeling shame and guilt because of it. Or who had them and feel fine about it, but read subtle put-downs of their choice here and elsewhere.
It's been 4.5 years since I had a baby, and I'm likely not having any more. Personally, it doesn't really affect me any more. Just trying to give a different perspective. Some of the people here are just so gosh-darn firm in their stances, and have never walked a mile in another person's shoes.
