(Epidural anesthesia is most popular means for pain relief during labor)
Guys, dont ever trust your wife if she said she can withstand labor pain. God created Epidural. USE IT.
And if you are in the labor room with your wife, SHUT UP. Dont be a hero by trying to calm her down. Nothing calms down a woman in labor. Just SHUT UP.
1st lesson to be learned? You will appreciate and love your wife more when you see first hand the amount of pain she has to endure.
2nd lesson to be learned? You appreciate and love your child more when you hear first hand your baby’s first cry.
Love you both very much, ney and darling.
