She was insane. She told me I HAD to have an epidural and arranged it but I was too tired to complain after being left on my own overnight with no help with a high-risk pregnancy and she says "Some women can't handle it, I gave birth twice with just gas & air, I guess I'm stronger!" - at that point I had to jump in and tell her "whoopty smurfing doo, probably the lack of braincells". My husband's face was a picture but at that point I had just had enough of her stupid chatter.
Next time I've arranged to travel 35 miles away to give birth.
