122 | the 90% epidural rate makes natural birth in the hospital almost impossible Unapologetically Unmedicated | Empowered & Informed Birth Education with Fierce Lizzie

    • Parenting

The epidural is so common, that it is making it nearly impossible for moms to go unmedicated in the hospital. The true epidural rate may shock you once I break it down in this episode. If you are the average mom, planning a hospital birth, you are going to need to bring your own ingredients (aka support tools) because the natural birth is not something the hospital has experience with.
