Hi my name is Emma when I was six years old I had GBS I was paralized from my neck down and in ICU for 3 1/2 months. I beleave I have fully recovered I am now 24 years old. I have a question or a concern. I am currently pregnant with my second child and am wondering if its safe to have an epidoral during delivery. I did not have any drugs my last birth and it was complete horror in pain. 18 hours no drugs and a baby that was to big for me, 8lbs 14oz and 24 inches long, out of my 5f 5" long body. They ended up having to use forceps..still no drugs.. So you can properly see why I'm wanting an epidoral this time. I haven't been able to get a straight answer out of anyone that I have spoke to and am wondering if anyone can help me. Thank You!
