Didn't help me. It only made me feel more pressure. My only pain relief was walking. I made it through epidural free though :)
Wow you're superwoman! Lol I tried but felt like I just couldn't handle it anymore. The pain was SO intense! That's why I waited till 8cm to get the epidural. Which was pointless anyway because I waited so long, it didnt have time to work and I pushed her out shortly after. Feeling everything. It was horrible! I admire women that actually do it med free!
Maybe try some gas b4 epidural. Maybe it might be just enough relief for u.. good luck tho. I have 1 week till my due date and soo scared haha
Ball was awesome! I was induced with my daughter used it for quite awhile, they gave me
some medication to relax me, before I knew it, it was "last call"(7cm) for the epidural and by the time I numbed up it was go time. Try the ball or I heard water helps too.
