I had a home water birth a little over a year ago. I feel so out of touch with birth info since I was so immersed in it for so long then completely stopped once baby came.

I have a friend who is on her 3rd pregnancy. Her first two were completely natural (in the hospital). She is due around now and is just so tired. She said she is already wanting an epidural and she isn't even in labor yet. She has scheduled an induction for this Friday as she is hoping the baby will come this week so her mom can help her for a week before she (her mom) goes out of the country.

She is apprehensive about the induction and she keeps asking me why she doesn't need an epidural. I want to make sure to give her some good info or websites so she can have a good birth, any leads? TIA!
