I am expecting #3 now and am considering an epidural. My main reasons not to are the same as always (I have an allergy codeine which makes me extra nervous about me having a reaction to something in it).

Anyway, I'm wondering who has experienced both a birth all natural and another with an epidural...
how would you compare the two?
What would you choose the next time and why?
They may have more option in Canada. In the US it's epidural or painkillers like demoral - there is no gas and air. So it's pretty much no pain relief or narcotics and epidural. I heard the gas is a nice middle ground

I'm in Canada and had gas and air (nitrous oxide) and it did nothing at all for me. It seems that for some people it really helps and for others it does nothing.

I have always been so jealous of the gas!! Maybe it's not as utterly glorious as I imagine
