I got it after I was 5 cm I think (this was a couple years ago). It was great! JUST WONDERFUL! I was able to breath at last without feeling pain, watch a movie and talk. My husband was able to sit down and stop fanning me with a paper (note to self: bring fan next time).
It was turned off when it was time to push which was only an hour and a half after I got the epidural. It was so painful but I can understand why they needed to do it but I still hate it. It hurt so much! But I was able to feel everything and that did help me push (3x
) and get that boy out.
Next time as soon as I walk in I will ask for one. I won't wait around and try natural. It is just not for me at all. It took two hours for the person to do it to get to me
so I am placing my order early since I know what is in store.
Ladies on page 1 are right..it feels so good. Also I was able to go to the bathroom but if you can't get up and go or feel it..it does not matter. Those nurses and doctors have seen and heard it all.
Also congrats on the baby, may it be quick, easy and healthy birth/baby
