Having heard so much about labour pains,
I was one of those new moms who decided I would TRY to see
if I could tahan the pain before deciding if I would go for an epidural shot.
I'm not a purist who insists on experiencing the most natural state of childbirth,
but I didn't think I would want to opt for epidural right from the beginning as well.
Part of me wanted to test my own limits and see if I could handle it -
if all our mothers could do it, why couldn't I?
Although the politically correct advice is that every birth experience is personal and different,
and we shouldn't compare, but don't you feel it seemed like a badge of honour
if someone went through labour without any drugs? 🥇
