Non-epidural birth shaming? I didn't realize that was a thing!

I'm 37 and 27 weeks pregnant with my first child. I think being older you really don't GAF what people think of your pregnancy. I will take any and everything possible so I don't have to feel the pain.

I saw my sister give birth twice with no epidural and she's the strongest woman I know, I know I couldn't be strong like her so I'm having one.

I saw her first child being born with no epidural, she had to be induced, I won't go into detail, but I will say scissors were involved. It put be off having children until now.

My mother still has the clumps of hair that she tore out lol

So that's why I've decided to have an epidural, I KNOW I could do it without, by why walk when you could drive.
