Q & A

So next question-WHO decided women should not be knocked out during childbirth and why? It seems we came out OK and most of us seem to have had moms who were out.

    • I absolutely agree, Bern, do what you want. I just wondered why knocked out seemed to be the only way for years and now it’s not an option at all.

    • In the UK there was a whole “fashion ” for natural home births no drugs - water births and then suddenly C sections were all the “fashion” ... I had a C section because I’m a wimp plus I was solo and I had pre-eclampsia ...

      Now it’s all natural again with gnashing of teeth and calling partner names and gripping his hand tightly ...

      I love the fact that after you have given birth and your lying there thinking whoa ..... the nurse comes round to advice you on birth control ..... I can’t think of a single woman who has sex on her mind in the first 48 hours after birth ......

    • I’d imagine a combo of docs saying, hmmmm, maybe giving a woman enough drugs to knock her out during labor isn’t such a great idea

      +

      women saying hmmmm, maybe I actually want to experience childbirth and be conscious for it and I just want my pain minimized a bit.

    • I’ve been thru natural child birth four times.  Wouldn’t have missed it for the world.  With one of them I had a shot of demerol, but otherwise, nothing more than tylenol.

      Women have been giving birth since the beginning of time without being knocked out.  I don’t know why suddenly it was in fashion for awhile.  Why would anyone want to miss out on such a monumental moment in their life if they could help it?

      I also know of a little boy with no mother because the epidural she was given when he was born went horribly, horribly wrong.

    • I had an epidural..and it didn’t take..while having a scheduled c-section...went nuts when they were about to cut me..and they quickly knocked me out.  

      I have no regrets...and believe me...I bonded perfectly fine with both of my boys...ya know..whatever floats your boat.  For me....knock me out for about a week...

    • i had an epi and natural with austin and a c-sec with the girls.

      to me anything that comes out the ‘hole’ is natural. And i was berated for getting an epi. Yet, an epi does not go in the bloodstream or into the baby. When going au natural and getting pains meds, that goes right into the baby. So epis are safer for the baby. Now going completely natural with nothing...God bless em!! lol
