About taking epidural

Hi mummies, is there any reason why u would not opt for epidural and endure the pain throughout the delivery? Am thinking not to take it but not sure if I can tolerate through.

I didn't want to take it at first but the dilation took really long to happen. I was in labour for 28 hours and if I didn't take it I don't know how I could survive that 😂 you can always choose epidural if halfway through you really cannot take it anymore. but do keep in mind that if you decide to do it, do it as early as you can. I heard from other mommies that the epidural didn't work when they passed a certain cm of dilation. Congratulations and wishing you a smooth delivery!
