It’s true that epidurals may work wonders, but it wouldn’t make birth simple and painless. You may still feel pain from pressure and contractions. Moreover, while giving birth, it’s possible to experience more pain, and vaginal area burning. This is because your uterus and vagina are all composed of different nerves.
